Allen Gannett overturns the myths of creative genius and shows that it's not the province of genius - of those select brilliant few whose moments of insight arrive in unpredictable flashes of inspiration. Allan explains the science to achieving success in any creative field - from writing a novel to starting a successful company. Based on his book, The Creative Curve, you’ll forget everything you think you know about creative genius and find that everyone can better engineer success. When people ask Allen what he does, how does he like to reply? What are the most significant misunderstandings about creativity? The flash of genius, the "ah-ha" moment is not a stroke of inspiration. What is the biology behind it? Consumption, the leading creatives seem to learn a lot about a little. It’s not just about what they learn, it’s also about how they consume. The operations of a laboratory and our left and right brain How valuable is the company we keep? Build a team with people from both fringe and the establishment. Describe fringe? Is it good to have conflicting collaborators? Is there an essential role for the non-conformist? Does spending time by yourself foster your imagination? The challenge of identity for Allen of - being an analytical guy who writes a book on creativity Is there any association between IQ and creative ability? Working to commissions - the rituals and routines of a creative person Is timing an important part of the creative process? Do great creatives see the world through a different lens? Since writing the book, what has Allen implemented at TrackMaven to foster a more creative environment? What did Allen take from his research and apply to his world? How do we balance the familiar with the novel? Jazz musicians as an example LINKS Allen Gannett website https://www.allen.xyz
