Infographic: 29 Ways To Be Creative | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Creativity is defined as the ability to create, but sometimes, we seem to lose that ability all of a sudden. 

Luckily, Jordan-based art director Islam Abudaoud has created a useful infographic that teaches us ways to stay creative. 

Titled ‘29 Ways To Stay Creative’, the infographic illustrates the “creative process and methods to keep a person moving forward and motivated to keep doing more”. 

For more information, check out the infographic at designtaxi.com...

4 Lessons In Creativity From John Cleese

4 Lessons In Creativity From John Cleese | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Rae Ann Fera: "The legendary writer and actor has also become a well-known student of and speaker on creativity and how to cultivate it. He recently enlightened a group of ad types about the best ways to put yourself in a creative state of mind" ...

 

" “Guy Claxton, the author of Hare Brain, Tortoise Mind, says there are two kinds of thinking: one dependent on reason and logic, and one that’s less purposeful, it’s more playful, leisurely, and dreamy. In this mode, we are mulling things over, almost meditative, pondering a problem versus earnestly trying to solve it. He says allowing the mind time to meander is not a luxury. You need the tortoise mind, such as Einstein described, as much as you need the hare brain." "

To make sense of our elusiveness, some psychologists study the relationship between our mental states and creative output. Is relentless focus good for creativity? Or is it better to let the mind wander? Where does inspiration come from?

"For people who already feel separate from the crowd, social rejection can be a form of validation," says Johns Hopkins Carey Business School assistant professor Sharon Kim, the study's lead author. "Rejection confirms for independent people what they already feel about themselves, that they're not like others. For such people, that distinction is a positive one leading them to greater creativity."

A Sense Of Humor Increases Creativity

A Sense Of Humor Increases Creativity | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

...."If this different way of thinking explains the correlation between humor and intellectual creativity, then developing your sense of humor wouldn't necessarily help you to become more creative (although you might be happier). To do that, you would have to change the deeper patterns of thought. But then, what if humor did just that?

 

Remember that humor lights up three parts of the brain, starting with the thinking part that helps you get the joke. Consider a one-liner, like "If at first you don't succeed, skydiving may not be for you." A joke like this starts out with a traditional saying ("If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."), and then surprises you. It disobeys conventional expectations. It goes in an unexpected direction."

 

AN : the thesis here is that humour and creativity interlope....from an original article by Steve Gillman. ( Great and prolific author ).

Teaching Conceptual and Creative Thinking

Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson kept on beating the drum for radical change in schools this year. He keynoted the national Imagination Summit, and other education experts began thinking about how they could recapture the playful, creative energy of companies like Google and Pixar. Initiatives like the No Right Brain Left Behind challenge harnessed America's creative industries to develop ways for educators to teach soft skills like creativity and design thinking. The Imagination: Creating the Future of Education and Work project even created a lab to test ways for educators to effectively build imagination and creativity in the classroom.

MUST WATCH - Everything is a Remix Part 4

Our system of law doesn't acknowledge the derivative nature of creativity. Instead, ideas are regarded as property, as unique and original lots with distinct boundaries. But ideas aren't so tidy. They're layered, they’re interwoven, they're tangled.

Bre Pettis knows a thing or two about getting things done rather than getting them perfect: He's the founder of Makerbot, a company that turns out cheap rapid prototyping machines. No one would say they've been perfectly realized, but a key to Makerbot's success is that it has evolved in the real world, rather than foundering as just another great idea.

With that in mind, Pettis and collaborator Kio Stark gave themselves exactly 20 minutes to create a manifesto encapsulating everything they knew about bring a creative vision to life. They called it The Done Manifesto.
