"Those who have done research on this kind of "Professor Balthazar-effect" has often come to the conclusion that behind every great breakthrough of genius is at least ten years of hard work - including the failures. Picasso had painted over a decade before he came to the art form that led to his great fame.

Another myth is that money stimulates creativity. There are studies on this. You simply have promised various kinds of monetary rewards to groups with solving problems. A control group has since had the same problem with the task of solving the problem "because it is an interesting problem." The latter group clearly performed best. The greater the monetary reward the less creative response."

"Finally and perhaps most importantly, Mobley gave his students permission to be wrong. Every great idea grows from the potting soil of hundreds of bad ones, and the single biggest reason why most of us never live up to our creative potential is from fear of making a fool out of ourselves. For Mobley there were no bad ideas or wrong ideas only building blocks for even better ideas."

"Teaching in the form of labyrinth
One can see teaching in schools (and universities) as a maze. Pupils and students must stay within certain limits, but they'll also get access to the tools so that they can choose paths - and perhaps find new ones.
A researcher from Singapore, Soh, has developed nine criteria for creative teaching. They are: basic skills, independent learning, collaborative learning environment, deferred assessment, flexible thinking, self-assessed work, student participation, broadening of knowledge and conditions, and the ability to manage frustration and adversity.
In the case of creative teaching environment can both talk about the physical and psychological climate. The physical environment is easy to imagine. A playground, for example, stimulate both stereotypical and imaginative use."

"Creativity is best developed in small egalitarian organizations. Hierarchically-up construction sites can be productive and engage in a comprehensive and acclaimed business without necessarily responding to major scientific breakthroughs. While it is a great advantage for small environments to be surrounded and supported by a financially resourceful environment. The ideal size of a creative environment variable, but clusters of four to seven researchers is common. The successful environments complements pioneers and entrepreneurs often each other. Small environments work best if they are included in the broader community through strategic links to other environments and further networking. It is the social communication conditions governing and setting limits on how large the well-functioning research environments can be."
