At the heart of what motivates Gregory is creativity.
That act, either alone or as part of group, from which ideas, concepts,
and blue prints for change spring from sheer pondering, thinking,
and reflection. We watch the artist start from a clean white canvas
and are amazed at how he or she brings forth a beautiful, inspired
piece of art. We hear the improvisational notes flow from a musicians
mind, through an instrument and to our ears, and are moved at how
seemingly effortless this can be done. Yet, we sit on the front
lawn and make up a game to play with our son or daughter, grandson
or granddaughter, or a boy or girl we know and fail to see this
important act as creativity. It is this all to often unappreciated
creative energy which invented the game, and the creativity that
the child brings to the experience which Gregory is convinced must
be nurtured and developed if we are to truly enjoy life, serve our
communities, and do our best work.
The business that is Compulsion
to Create is at the same time the vehicle Gregory uses to
market his writing, as well as the enterprise which is home to sharing
his passion and skills with others through public speaking.
Gregory believes that we all create ideas, concepts
and thoughts everyday, and that we often fail to honor these important
acts of creativity. Gregory knows we all have a Compulsion
to Create, if only we choose to see it in ourselves.
