The Most Surprising Most Wanted List You May Ever Read

While we have plenty to be afraid of in our daily lives, these seven killers may have never crossed your mind. Mostly because these ones don’t have a face, or even a name. But they are dangerous all the same. Husband and wife team Andrew and Gaia Grant have dubbed them the “creativity killers.”

Our generation has seen a steep drop off in creativity despite access to better resources, quicker communication, and a host of other perks. Meaning that these menacing criminals have already been stalking their prey and getting away with it for far too long. Thanks to the Grants’ book, Who Killed Creativity, we now have a forensic gameplan for how to spot these killers in action and prevent them from committing future crimes.

The best way to stay safe from them out on those mean streets? Use failure as an opportunity to learn, pick a new hobby and don’t give it up until you’ve perfected it, trust your gut, seek out new options, ask for help, take a breath and believe that what you want out of life isn’t as impossible as you may think.

  1. Is that really true, that there’s been a drop off in creativity among people of ‘your’ generation? I remember it was something we talked about, a decade or so ago, but the conventional wisdom was that education would be skewed to take account of the changes brought about by the new technologies. Shame. Did love your post – useful for us all:)

  2. I think you have some great points here. I’m not sure it is a generational thing though. I see a lot of these same culprits in ALL age groups. I think we need to do everything we can to combat this. I might share this on my blog too. 🙂

  3. I have been writing to this subject as well. It’s like we don’t see what’s happening around us. Kids don’t communicate other than electronically anymore. My daughter-in-law texts her kids who are texting across the room, to come to dinner where they continue to text. Crazy. Excellent.

  4. I have come to believe that the majority of people have always avoided creativity, and actively discourage it whenever it rears its troubling head. For many, ignorance is bliss, it seems some people are more comfortable with their mistaken ideas than the truth.
