Creators are not mere experts. Instead of deliberately practicing down an already existing path, they often create their own path for others to follow.

The research shows that we needn’t be chronically over-scheduled and over-caffeinated to achieve our goals. Pursuing things like meaningful relationships, gratitude and self-compassion can actually be more conducive to success.

Play is abundant in the lives of those considered to be creative. It facilitates social bonding, boosts productivity and enhances your mood. As positive psychologist Christopher E. Peterson put it, play is “…a robust predictor of how satisfied we are with our lives.”

Yes.  I call it, "finding your creative capacity frame and scale."  

Just the right difficulty can lead to huge production, just the right abstraction can lead to huge breakthroughs.  

It's an instinct, a really, really, really smart one that doesn't frankly require logic as a tool or a starting point for that matter.

You gotta play with it quite differently than you would, say, a baby or an animal.  

However, forcing is the wrong approach entirely.  It's about as good for your creativity as forcing bowel movement for digestive health.  

Challenge it, encourage it, bargain a la Faustian with it - but unless something really serious, like personal safety is on the line, don't force it. Ever.
