I have a premise and it may be a little shocking. But I think it’s true. I think that all of us are creative. I think all of us are capable of doing very unique things and finding unique ways of doing them. I think the human mind is wired that way. You’ll hear a lot of people say I’m not creative. I don’t have a creative side or I’m more of a structured person. I think this may be true for the way they’re operating, it may be true for the walls they’ve built themselves. I think all of us do have a side of us that is inherently creative, that allows us to express ourselves in unique ways. A side that allows us to see connections that most other people don’t see. It just needs to be untapped. Working from my experience and the experience of others which have been large corporate or structured environments, many times, that creativity is squashed and then it will take quite some time to rebuild that creativity in a new situation. What is interesting is – I can see it, it can be rebuilt.
It’s rebuilt in my life. It’s been rebuilt in the lives of others. You just have to let it out. The question of the day is how do you get your creativity out? You start small. You start challenging yourself to think differently, to work on solutions, to come up with new ideas. At first, they don’t have to be great ideas, just get ideas out. Eventually, you’ll start seeing the quality and the variety of your ideas increasing. You’ll start being less and less connected to structured norms. This is when great creativity can come out. Put yourself in situations where you can think differently. Work on new situations and allow this muscle to build. I think you’ll be surprised. We are all creative. All of us are capable of great creativity. We just have to let that system build. What’s been your experience? Have you seen uncreative people suddenly do very creative things?
