According to Jordan Peterson only a small portion of people are truly creative.
To be creative means creating something unique and useful at the same time.
Those who are truly creative must create or they will feel miserable.
Creativity, on the one hand, can be seen as a curse because it is hard enough to create something new, but it’s only 5% of the job and most of the creatives need to find a source of income and pursue their creative endeavours during their free time.
Success in creative endeavours is equivalent to winning a lottery; only few can win but they win big.
It is extremely difficult to find your first customer and even second.
Creative work is hard but it doesn’t mean that you should give up, after all you have a gift and you should use it.
