Creativity in Human Performance
Welcome to the creativity category archive. Articles here are focused on the nature of creativity in human beings as it influences and determines performance in both work and sport.

This is the condition I have called the flow experience–an experience that [...] few are able to find in their work".
Daily work, career, employment, even activity of a sporting nature, relies on a free and creative aspect in order for us to realise happiness. Life and work without creativity fails to grow, fails to satisfy, and existence becomes sterile. Therefore, creativity is a central concept in any worthwhile endeavour. The articles here in the Creativity Archive attempt to convey and promote this premise.
We will cover topics such as Genius, Intelligence, the development of Expertise, Creative Thinking and Creative Personality. Here, you'll learn how these concepts contribute towards optimal human performance.
