The Innovator Behind "A Christmas Carol" - Creative Innovation Group

The Innovator Behind "A Christmas Carol" - Creative Innovation Group | Creative innovation | Scoop.it
"A Christmas Carol" turned out to be a huge hit. And since Dickens put his own money into it, he kept 100% of the profits. Besides being an innovator in self-publishing, he invented the concept of publishing in serial form. His novels and novellas were the original soap operas of their day. He used the serial publishing technique to test out new characters and plotlines, based on audience feedback. He knew how to keep them in suspense, and did it with the use of the cliff-hanger. He was also a pioneer in sponsorship for writers,

Why Creativity Gets Better With Age | Creative Innovation Group

Why Creativity Gets Better With Age | Creative Innovation Group | Creative innovation | Scoop.it
Aging, in general, gets a bad rap. Though it's true that as you age your body slowly goes through changes and all vital organs begin to lose some of their function. A seventy year old may not be able to compete physically with a twenty year old in a marathon, but there's one area where they could run rings around someone decades younger... creativity. And creativity gets better with age.

Conceptual Thinking and Creative Note Taking | Creative Innovation Group | Creative innovation | Scoop.it
Anyone who has seen my office and the piles of hand-written notes on legal pads, in the backs of books, on scraps of paper and napkins, and on various Post-it notes stuck to the wall would probably label me a bit kooky. So, I'm glad to hear that a recent study at the Princeton University psychology department has vindicated my crazy note taking. The conceptual thinking and note taking study was conducted by psychological scientist and author Pam Mueller and involved 65 college students. Some of them took notes from a TED talk in a laptop and some took notes in long-hand in a notebook with pen and paper.

Today's markets are so saturated that the only way to differentiate yourself from the crowd is through constant and consistent creativity and innovation. According to a recent Fortune Magazine poll, most CEOs say that innovation is their #1 priority. But the truth is that most companies don't innovate until a crisis hits. I've found this to be true as a creativity keynote speaker over the past couple of years.

Do Creative People Think Highly of Themselves?

Do Creative People Think Highly of Themselves? | Creative innovation | Scoop.it
When I read that a recent study on creativity showed that people who are highly creative tend to score low on tests of humility and honesty, it kind of rubbed me the wrong way. After spending most of my life in the entertainment industry and being surrounded by creative people, I've run into plenty that thought highly of themselves and would score low on honesty. But I've also been around plenty of creative people that are also very honest and humble. I would say that the ones that are still humble are less likely to make it to the A list though. Being creative and making a great living from your creativity are two separate things. Unfortunately some of the most creative people never make great money at their craft and remain very humble and honest.
