Where's my creativity?
We are all born with the same creativity. Consider Picasso’s quote “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Picasso knew that we all have the same ability when we are born, it is the circumstances that surround us and the opportunities we are given that allow us to grow and stay creative.
Those of us who are given these opportunities and go on to grasp them and take them further are the ones we often look at and admire for their ability to observe the world differently, whether through art, design, mathematics, science or any other subject, but creative thinking is a skill we have and we should all develop and use it.
New ideas come from creative thinking and we can all have these – it might be an idea for a dinner you want to cook, or a room you want to decorate. It could be an idea for a game you play with your children, or how you are going to save up for those diamond earrings you’ve seen! 😉 What we don’t realise is that we think creatively in (sometimes) the most mundane situations.
