The science of creativity
Contrary to popular belief, creativity is not something predetermined by genetics. Instead it can be developed through effort and practice - everyone has the potential for great ideas!
Creative thought isn't just an occasional occurrence, it can become a daily part of your routine. Establishing this habit increases productivity and helps you reach the next level of success.
Capture the seeds of creativity as you discover them by ensuring that a trusty idea notebook or dictaphone is always at hand. Numerous possibilities exist for considering and recording your ideas on-the-go; from laptops to napkins - no notion should go unnoted.
Challenge yourself by taking on projects that require creative problem solving. Test your limits, and think of inventive ways to approach tasks like constructing a model of the brain or making Fido take flight! By pushing boundaries and encouraging competition between fresh ideas, you can open up new avenues for exploration.
Unlock the potential of your creativity by broadening your knowledge. Stepping away from psychology and exploring other fields can provide invaluable insight for interconnecting seemingly unrelated ideas, which often leads to brilliant innovations. Make the most out of this opportunity - seek permission to attend lectures on 12th century architecture or read journals in unfamiliar subjects; you'll be surprised how much it will help enhance both future studies in psychology as well as life itself!
Make your environment a creative playground—surround yourself with people, places and things that inspire interesting ideas. Fill your workspace with the unexpected to stoke out-of-the box thinking. Embrace new experiences through activities like attending operas or visits to art galleries as mental stimulation for fresh perspectives.
