Creativity. It is an elusive and much admired trait. We all want it, but few truly possess it. What drives the creative thinker? Does strife, frustration and chaos lead to an unintended wellspring of imaginative thought? Does the tried, true and comfortable pave the way for blandness, boredom and the same old same old?
Some reports suggest our brains are working overtime to the detriment of our creative skill set. Sure, we are getting the job done, but ticking all the boxes on our endless list leaves no time for innovation and our creative capacity is diminishing.
So maybe this summer, vow to open your mind and take the road less traveled. Embrace the unexpected and allow space for exciting new ideas to grow and even flourish. Weed out the mundane and cultivate your creativity!
