Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.” — Steve Jobs

Many people believe creativity is an inborn trait. In reality, creativity is a skill that must be practiced and developed. To become proficient at an instrument or sport, you have to put in the time practicing. The more time you put into it, the better you’ll…
