According to a recent article in Newsweek magazine, creativity is on the decline.
I’ll leave it to the experts to debate the theory, but I’ll tell you what I believe about creativity. It’s a muscle. I’ve found that if I use the creativity muscle daily, it gets stronger. The more new experiences I have, the more creatively I think. The more I challenge the status quo, the more options seem to open.
If you want to be creative take a different route to work. Or listen to a different radio station. Different experiences forces the brain to think creatively rather than relying on the way you’ve done things before.
If you want to be creative. Then be creative. Teach your brain to stop being lazy. Give it as many new experiences as possible.
