Chance Chat #33: Creative vs. Control

I’m not traditionally creative. I struggle to visualize things before they are in front of me. I tend to go with the tried and true process. If you tell me that taking steps 1, 2, and 3 will result in reaching a goal. I will do steps 1, 2, and 3. I might do a few extra things, or modify those steps depending on my skills. But I follow the process.

Surrendering control is not something that comes easily to me. My mother is constantly reminding me that I cannot be in charge of everything. I’m working on it. I recognize that some things just happen. And that is okay. I might get a few warnings, but sometimes I’ll get a surprise, and I just need to roll with it. The last few days have all been about rolling with it. And that’s going to continue for the next month or more.

Are you creative? Or do you prefer control?

  1. I am soooo not a creative person. I like structure and rules and following directions. 😉 So even my ‘creative’ pursuits, like knitting and playing piano, are structured because I have to follow a pattern/sheet music!
