Yesterday a book came out that I have been looking forward to for some time.  It is called Creative Confidence, and was written by IDEO founder and Stanford creator David Kelley and his brother Tom Kelley, IDEO partner and the author of the bestselling The Art of Innovation.

Their book debunks the notion that the world is divided into two groups: creative and un-creative.  They make the case that we are all born creative and too often our creativity is not encouraged or nourished so it becomes less dominate.  But — and this is the good news — our creativity doesn’t go away and it can be reinvigorated.

Want to learn more?  Watch How to Build Your Creative Confidence, a talk Dave Kelley gave at the TED conference in 2012 or read Reclaim Your Creative Confidence from the Harvard Business Review.

Or, heck, just throw caution to the wind and go out and buy the book.  You will not be disappointed.
