One of the common misconceptions is that creativity is an innate talent, something pre-determined in our genes. While indeed some individuals you meet are very creative in their approaches to life and work, or expressive in their ideas, chances are if you look at their background and listen to their backstory, there were probably environmental factors that have cultivated their creativity. Which is why it’s common to find a family of singers, or prominent artists graduating from specific schools, or even some countries in the world (Canada, Sweden and New Zealand rank high in the Global Creativity Index.
Now, while growing up, you may not have the right environment to nurture your creativity, or perhaps have not the privilege to be exposed to the communities or network, but there is more than one way to increase your creativity. As a matter of fact, today, we are going to talk about five different ways that are proven to help many become more creative.
At this point, you may be tempted to try all of these five methods to improve your creativity, which is good. My recommendation?
