14 Jun Do you have a creative brain?
“An idea is a feat of association, and the height of it is a good metaphor.”
Creative thinking is one of the most useful skills you can possess. Every problem you face in
work and in life can benefit from innovative solutions and creative ideas. Anyone can learn
to be creative by using these five steps:
1) Gathering material
2) Intensely working over the material in your mind
3) Stepping away from the problem
4) Allowing the idea to come back to you naturally
5) Testing your idea in the real world
Being creative isn’t about being the first (or only) person to think of an idea. More often,
creativity is about connecting ideas.
