The World's Most Overused Word

Perhaps the most overused and misunderstood word in the English language today is "creativity." Companies call in highly paid consultants and hold weekend retreats and seminars trying to magically instill creativity in their management staff. Schools always include it in their curriculum, usually at the same time they delete art and music classes from their schedules and cut the budgets for materials in cooking classes, metal shop, and other hands-on endeavors.
