Creativity More Valuable Than Passion: An Entrepreneur's Rules of Creativity | Innovation & Creativity | Scoop.it

After @Hannah du Plessisshared a great post about Creativity being more important for startup entrepreneurs than passion I wanted to weigh in and share related experience growing up with the right side of the brain being my dominant hemisphere (lol).

I share 5 ideas from the daughter of Gatorade's inventor:

* Creativity Bigger Predictor Than Intelligence.
* Creativity Can Be A Hard Row To Hoe.
* Creativity & Structure.
* Creativity can be learned and taught.
* Creativity happens at intersection of disciplines.

Great post hope my hard won experience contributes something helpful.

Damariz TrèsPositive Winborne's curator insight, March 2, 2013 1:45 PM

Have you ever felt like a ship at sea without a destination plan? I mean ... like you are "just existing" and life really doesn't have a meaning??? I would venture to say "feeling that way" is an indication that you probably don't have a "compass" for your life -- a directional instrumental that let's you know when (and if) you have strayed off course. You're on a journey -- this thing we call life -- but you don't have a plan. Without a plan, you can get turnaround and sometimes discover that you have lost yourself in the process of living. I have found that a life plan is a wonderful tool! It is filled with your hopes, dreams and desires; it is centered around YOU. With a life plan as a guide, life is filled with bliss!!

The Creative Personality ~ Psychology Today

The Creative Personality ~ Psychology Today | Innovation & Creativity | Scoop.it

By Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi,

 

"Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives. Most of the things that are interesting, important, and human are the result of creativity. What makes us different from apes—our language, values, artistic expression, scientific understanding, and technology—is the result of individual ingenuity that was recognized, rewarded, and transmitted through learning.

 

"When we're creative, we feel we are living more fully than during the rest of life. The excitement of the artist at the easel or the scientist in the lab comes close to the ideal fulfillment we all hope to get from life, and so rarely do. Perhaps only sex, sports, music, and religious ecstasy—even when these experiences remain fleeting and leave no trace—provide a profound sense of being part of an entity greater than ourselves. But creativity also leaves an outcome that adds to the richness and complexity of the future.

 

"I have devoted 30 years of research to how creative people live and work, to make more understandable the mysterious process by which they come up with new ideas and new things. Creative individuals are remarkable for their ability to adapt to almost any situation and to make do with whatever is at hand to reach their goals. If I had to express in one word what makes their personalities different from others, it's complexity. They show tendencies of thought and action that in most people are segregated. They contain contradictory extremes; instead of being an "individual," each of them is a "multitude."

I know you want to be the best you can be. We all do. But sometimes we look for success in the wrong places or we try to achieve it in the wrong ways.

 

Here are 60 inconvenient truths about personal development to help you stay on track.

 

The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing. Growing happens when what you know changes how you live.You can’t have good ideas unless you’re willing to generate a lot of bad ones.A good idea without action is nothing at all.It’s not so much about finding opportunities as it is about creating them.10% of our lives is decided by uncontrollable circumstances. 90% is decided by how we react to those circumstances.What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow.If you’re waiting for the perfect conditions, ideas or plans to get started, you’ll never achieve anything.

What happens in the creative mind? Here is an article that breaks that down.

Mindsets: Why Do Some People Learn Faster?

Mindsets: Why Do Some People Learn Faster? | Innovation & Creativity | Scoop.it
Do we ignore mistakes, brushing them aside for the sake of our self-confidence? Or do we investigate the errors, seeking to learn from the snafus? The latter approach, suggests a series of studies, could make you learn faster.

 

Jonah Lehrer writes:

 

One of the essential lessons of learning, which is that people learn how to get it right by getting it wrong again and again."

 

"Education isn’t magic. Education is the wisdom wrung from failure."

 

"A new study, forthcoming in Psychological Science, and led by Jason Moser at Michigan State University, expands on this important concept. The question at the heart of the paper is simple: Why are some people so much more effective at learning from their mistakes? After all, everybody screws up. The important part is what happens next. Do we ignore the mistake, brushing it aside for the sake of our self-confidence? Or do we investigate the error, seeking to learn from the snafu?"

 

Growth Mindset 

 

"It turned out that those subjects with a growth mindset were significantly better at learning from their mistakes. Because the subjects were thinking about what they got wrong, they learned how to get it right."

 

"Fear of failure (fixed mindset) can actually inhibit learning."

 

Praise: How Matters

 

Students praised for their intelligence almost always chose to bolster their self-esteem by comparing themselves with students who had performed worse on the test.

 

In contrast, kids praised for their hard work were more interested in the higher-scoring exams. They wanted to understand their mistakes, to learn from their errors, to figure out how to do better.

 

The experience of failure had been so discouraging for the “smart” kids that they actually regressed.

 

The problem with praising kids for their innate intelligence — the “smart” compliment — is that it misrepresents the psychological reality of education. It encourages kids to avoid the most useful kind of learning activities, which is when we learn from our mistakes.

 

Foresaking Self-Improvement for the Sake of Self-Confidence

 

Unless we experience the unpleasant symptoms of being wrong the mind will never revise its models.

 

We’ll keep on making the same mistakes, forsaking self-improvement for the sake of self-confidence. Samuel Beckett had the right attitude: “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”
