I have no idea.  Most people, I think, would like to be creative.  If they
don't care, then I doubt there is much anyone can do.

I think the essence of creativity is having a juicy problem--something one
cares deeply about and something that is neither too hard nor too easy.
With a good problem one will overcome any obstacles that happen to arise.
In the process of overcoming obstacles creativity happens.

BTW, I think it is very important to be reminded from time to time that one
is on the correct path.  I am thinking about the book, "The Millionaire Next
Door", as well as "Flow".  Some of the best lessons I have learned in
seminars consisted of learning that what I had naturally been doing was in
fact a very good thing to do :-)  Another example: a recent article in
Scientific American called "The Tyranny of Choice"
