REDISCOVERING YOUR CREATIVE MIND.
Believing that creativity is just talent is a common misconception. It’s not a gift we are born with, we are all creative in different ways, sometimes unknowingly, because we exclude creative thinking in our conception of creativity.
There is an important distinction to make. Creativity may be practiced with artistic creativity and creative thinking, which are highly related, but not both contemporarily necessary. Creativity is often associated with artistic tasks like writing, painting, composing or making handmade goods. But let’s not forget creative thinking, a thought process for encouraging elaboration of original and diverse ideas and fundamental for problem-solving.
CREATIVITY IS A SKILL.
It can be learned but it will need practicing and it must be constantly cultivated.
Here are some behaviors to adopt in order to develop this type of skill:
- Thinking outside the box
- Conscious exploring
- Challenging common wisdom
- Escaping comfort zones
WHY YOU SHOULD BE MORE CREATIVE?
As Edward de Bono says, creativity is the key skill needed for achievement. Without creativity there is only repetition and routine, which are valuable for our behavior, but creativity is fundamental for change, new directions and improvement.
It has become essential for business. Thanks to internet and social networks, information and easy find inspiration are now a commodity that everyone can access. So if we want to stand out in our businesses we must make use of our creativity.
It’s also useful for reaching our goals by using creative solutions to keep us on track, think about bullet journals, a great way to organize and plan our paths to success.
Therefore it can positively effect many parts of your life!
SO HOW CAN WE BE MORE CREATIVE?
Being present and mindful is fundamental for amplifying this skill. Imagination and inventiveness can open us to a sort of augmented reality. Tools like curiosity along with research are the grounds for inspiration. We may stroll through experimentation by taking action with activities and exercises.
It’s by wandering through different things and exploring our thinking boundaries that we may experience ideas and possibilities when expanding our skill. So how do we actually do that?
By practicing the attitude of being creative and this is why I bring to you Creative Wandering©.
