    I believe the most significant factor in being creative is being present, and our task focus and goal directedness get in the way of being present.  When creativity appears to come out of task focused goal directed activity, I believe it's still really coming out of a moment of being present, a moment that has managed to squeeze through the task focus and goal directedness, and sometimes it gets noticed, like the guy in the car who noticed the present moment of 'magical misty landscape' that broke through his goal directed driving.  Creativity happens when being present.
