Get Back to Being Creative
I’ve been watching The Beatles, ‘Get Back’ which documents the band creating their last album from nothing over a few weeks culminating in their famous roof top gig. You literally watch these guys pull an album of hit songs from thin air, Let it Be. You get a glimpse into what it was like to be a Beatle.
What struck me though, was their creative process where they literally just ‘play’ the whole time. But when I say ‘play’ it’s not play in a musical sense, it’s play in a child like sense. It’s like they are just having fun bouncing in and out of ideas, concepts, riffs, stories, games, news, other bands songs & most importantly opinions from each other. It’s exactly the same as how I see my kids play.
Then their musical tastes and experience filters out the magic from these nuances slowly adding layers upon layers of insight until they get something they all love, creating amazing songs.
There is so much to take away from this process at a creative level, business level and pretty much a life level where we should not take ourselves too seriously … we need to let our guards down, be free and vulnerable to experiment, try, bounce and find out what sticks & what makes us a better person.
We all need to be more aware of that, I reckon!
