Sabotaging creativity

There’s a neat article over at Fast Company about sabotaging creativity.  It deals with the issue that I think  many creative people have (myself included)…we create lists of projects, articles, whatever, that we want to tackle in the future.  The gist of this article is the idea that the existence of that list itself hurts creativity more than it helps.  I for one have a huge list of topics I’ve wanted to write about here…yet I find myself focusing instead on whatever captures my interest at a particular time.  I’m thinking lists like this are really more useful for project managers who are in a position to delegate these tasks to others.  For self-led creative types, these lists really don’t help all that much.  I can’t bring myself to delete my lists…yet…but maybe someday. 🙂
