There is a debate about whether creativity is domain-general or domain-specific—a tendency to study creativity with an assumption of generality. The critical evidence for this position is that measures of ingenuity within particular domains show significant intercorrelations.
Both gifted and non-gifted children’s creative performance and activity found significant correlations among the indices in various fields (e.g., writing, music, crafts, performing arts, and science).
Hocevar’s (1976) study indicated that for college students, significant correlations were found between creative performance and activity in various fields (e.g., fine arts, crafts, performing arts, math, science, and music). These studies explain that the nature of creativity is general rather than domain-specific.

If you are enthusiastic about only one thing, you will devote your entire life to it. That one item dominates your whole life. It’s the same with your breaths and oxygen. You will not be able to quit doing that, no matter what. However, if you are equally passionate about a hundred things, you will accomplish all of them without even realizing it.
You constantly feel as if you’re only surviving, doing only one thing to keep your life going — all the other things blend into one. It’s as if the entire universe has plotted to accomplish everything through you, and you’re simply a conduit. Lastly, as Steve Jobs would say, discipline is the only thing needed to connect the dots. Passion can present itself in a variety of ways.
You could desire to accomplish several different things. However, you must take a step back, do some homework, be systematic, prioritize items, create a solid strategy, and put it into action so that your enthusiasm is channeled in the appropriate direction toward a goal.Topics #Digital Design #Filmmaking #Miquel Reina #Writing
