DID YOU KNOW?
WE ARE ALL BORN CREATIVE
Do you think you “just aren’t that creative”? Or that you are? Yet there is no Creativity gene. Creativity is an inborn skill of every human being. In fact, Creativity is at the heart of being human. It’s one of the things we excel most in.
WE ALL LOSE OUR CREATIVITY AS WE AGE
98% of five year olds scored at genius level in a famous study, while only 2% of adults scored at that same level. As Pablo Picasso said, the challenge is not to be creative, but to remain creative as we grow up. All of us have lost our Creativity as a result of our life experiences. People who are “more creative” than others today have just found ways to hold onto their natural Creativity. That’s all. It’s not your fault.
EVERYONE NEEDS MORE CREATIVITY
Many people confuse Creativity with art. That’s because artists know they need Creativity in their work. Really, though, Creativity is a critical skill in EVERY area of life. Maslow put Creativity at the top of the Hierarchy of Needs. Yet at the level of basic survival, finding food say, Creativity can save a person’s life. Having better ideas faster and easier means saving money, time, and stress. It makes people more productive, happier, and healthier. Who doesn’t want that?
CREATIVITY IS A SKILL, NOT AN ACCIDENT
We can recover our lost Creativity and even gain much more. Because Creativity is a Creation. A choice. A skill you learn and manage. And however Creative you are, you can benefit from implementing better techniques.
