Why be creative? Often the answer to this simple question is couched in terms of how creativity can bring us and others a bountiful bevy of better things: better products, better services, better ways of doing. Creativity brings with it, it is true, a host of instrumental advantages –– improvements in how we work, play, think, and live. A better this, a better that _______ (you fill in the blanks).
But is this answer the full story? Might there be more to be said? Might being creative (often) be something desirable just in and of itself? Is being creative itself rewarding? Does being creative feel good?
There are many reasons to think so. . . .
