The difference between people who are motivated to finish what they start even though it may take them hundreds of effortful actions and people who see only one solution to a problem or way to do something or who give up when their first attempt fails is the difference between creative and noncreative people. We all know these people who are creative and who live among us and we turn to them for solutions when we have a problem.
