Don’t you just hate it when someone says, “Be creative.” You can sit there with your eyes close and grunt. But nothing comes out. So you conclude you are just not the creative type. It is something you are just not good at.
Who are the most creative people on the planet? Children! I feel pretty safe in assuming everyone reading this was at one time a child. And everyone at one time was highly creative. What happened? You unlearned you creativity. The education system and business environment forced it out of you. When ever you colored outside the lines or did not use the expected approach even if you followed the instructionyou were punished. So your creative muscle grew weaker and weaker until you believed they were no longer there.
How do youÂ get your creativity back? Play! Play with thing you can create Play at things that have few if any rules. draw, compose music, sculpt, carve, write poetry
I did not say take lessons. Just do it. You should go right now to the dollar store and buy a play dough and build something.Â Right now you are not trying to be good at drawing, composing or poetry you are trying redevelop your creativity.
Only by exercising your creative muscle will it become strong.
