You spend most of your day trying to be creative, but do you ever stop to ask yourself what creativity is? With a white board, a few markers and a techno soundtrack, Tate Linden uses the written word to express and modify his thoughts on the subject. And because it's shown in fast-forward—the video checks in at under one minute—viewers get a sense of his mental process in real time.
After posting the question, "What Is Creativity?" at the top of the board, Linden gives his first answer:
- It is the drive to do things differently.
He changes the statement to read:
