How To Cultivate A Creative Thinking Habit

How To Cultivate A Creative Thinking Habit | creativity and innovation | Scoop.it

.. inCreativity isn't a mythical creature to be caught and tamed. It's a habit, studies suggest a way of life that's built over time.

Belva Jennings's insight:

Creative people  habitually respond to problems in fresh and novel ways, rather than allowing themselves to respond mindlessly and automatically." They habitually:
■Look for ways to see problems that other people don’t
■Take risks that other people are afraid to take
■Have the courage to defy the crowd and to stand up for their own beliefs
■Seek to overcome obstacles and challenges to their views that other people give in to.

 

..in other words, anyone can be creative.
