Creativity involves transforming your ideas, imagination, and dreams into reality. When you’re being creative, you can see the hidden patterns, make connections between things that aren’t normally related, and come up with new ideas. Creative ability depends on creative thinking which is part hard work but largely creative problem-solving.
Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives … most of the things that are interesting, important, and human are the results of creativity… [and] when we are involved in it, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life.”
Break out of your thought patterns to achieve maximum innovation and imagination.
creating something new, such as writing music, you don’t even pay attention to how your body feels or any problems you may be having at home.
Is Creative Thinking Learned or Natural?
Human beings are born creative and then taught to be uncreative as they grow older. Just think about it: When you are a kid, there is an emphasis on art classes and “reaching for the stars,” and when you get older, you’re told to get real, take the straight and narrow path, and pay your taxes. Pursuing our creative potential tends to come to a hault when we grow up. Creative individuals don’t always have the most supportive environment in the workplace because they might be said to have unusual thoughts and lack the know-how for real business innovation.
Research proves that non-creative behavior is learned overtime.
The good news is: If you consider yourself uncreative as an adult, you can reteach yourself to have a whole new mind (creatively speaking) and get into the habit of practicing creativity and innovation once again.
Aside from doing simple things like traveling to a new place, taking a walk, and engaging in a new hobby, you can also train yourself to do something new and become an expert in it. It’s been shown that creativity in a certain area emerges after much practice. You also need to be open to new possibilities, remain curious about the world, and easily shake off mistakes. Employ these creativity measures and you’ll possess a great deal more of creative thinking soon enough.
You can also accidentally stumble upon creativity. According to one study, 72 percent of people have creative insights in the shower. Why? Solitary activities like showering, walking alone, and daydreaming get the brain moving towards a more creative place.
Creativity is like the force: It may have been in you all along. You just have to uncover it.
