Elizabeth Gilbert @ TED Talks: A new way to think about creativity

It's time for a little break from reading and writing to listen to a fascinating TED Talk on creativity. If you have not been introduced to TED Talks, I'm warning you, this stuff will ensnare you and keep you from accomplishing anything productive for DAYS. Unlike the Nyan Cat or Angry Birds, procrastinating with TED Talks can actually teach you something, though. There certainly are worse ways to get off track.

This talk is from Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray, Love. She shares with us new ways to think about creativity and "genius."
Don't be afraid. Don't be daunted. Just do your job.
