Why I started “The Creative Tusk” Newsletter

Creativity is not just for the creatives. Sure, if you are an artist, performer, or writer - hopefully you have oodles of creativity pouring out of your being. However, even if you are in a "non-creative" field, adopting a creative mindset will enhance your ability to learn new skills, communicate more effectively, and solve thorny problems in unconventional ways. In fact, I would argue that in today's knowledge economy, being creative is a necessary skill to stay relevant and grow in our personal and professional lives.

This newsletter is my attempt to capture some of my thoughts on creativity and developing a creative mindset. I will cover various topics including the science of learning, storytelling, design thinking, and innovation. I don't pretend to be an original thinker, although I believe I can absorb a ton of information and distill it into cohesive, actionable ideas. I hope that helps.
