Why housework is good for creativity

Art, humanity & creative service

This week’s creativity quote is a little different – I stumbled across it, not in a book, but on one of my favourite weekly vlogs; Marie Forleo’s Q&A Tuesday. Marie was exploring the idea that creativity is a form of service, and this simple but powerful phrase leapt out at me…
