This article is from 99u, a site that is for and about being creative. This article summarizes research on creativity and how to use it so you are more creative. Creativity is part of a curator's thinking tools, so the advice in this article also works for improving your curation skills.
1.) Restrict yourself: Don't use too many sources or look at too much information or for too much time.
2.) Re-Conceptualize: Describe an article or information resource for audience.
3.) Separate Seeking from Sensing: Making sense of what you find is different than the discovery part. Don't try to do both at once
4.) Use counterfactual thinking: Ask what is missing or what if the advice was written in a different way.
5.) Daydream after getting started: Come back to a resource after you have thought about it for a while.
These points about creativity are all about mindsets. What is your curation mindset?
