Creativity is an Act of Defiance

I have mentioned Twyla Tharp’s book, The Creative Habit, on a number of occasions.
I’ve been thinking a lot about creativity and innovation lately. There’s a passage on creativity in The Creative Habit that has had some resonance with me lately, especially as I moved from my old website to a new design and host.
Tharp writes:
Creativity is an act of defiance. You’re challenging the status quo. You’re questioning accepted truths and principles. You’re asking three universal questions that mock conventional wisdom:
Why do I have to obey the rules?
Why can’t I be different?
Why can’t I do it my way?
These are the impulses that guide all creative people whether they admit it or not. Every act of creation is also an act of destruction or abandonment. Something has to be cast aside to make way for the new.”
