It concluded that “engaging in simple external tasks that allow the mind to wander may facilitate creative problem solving.”

Procrastination, it turns out, may not be such a bad thing after all. The most effective way to tackle a new creative assignment is to put it off for a while, according to psychologist Maria Konnikova. “You’re actually doing the smartest and most productive thing in the world if you waste time," she said.

Curiosity is an inextinguishable creative spark

Curiosity is an inextinguishable creative spark | Creativity and Learning Insights | Scoop.it
Not even today’s box-ticking managerialists can stamp out our innate desire to know, says Joe Moran
Marci Segal, MS's insight:

Our myths and religions are full of cautionary tales about curiosity. Pandora, Daedalus, Psyche, Orpheus, Adam and Eve, Lot’s wife: they all succumbed to a curiosity that turned out to be calamitous. During the scientific revolution of the 17th century, when curiosity was finally transformed from a vice to a virtue, its advocates admitted that it could be a voracious beast if left unchecked and not channelled into worthy ends.


Good read in support of curiosity.
