What are activities that you do to nurture and expand your ability to be creative?
After 30 years of studying creative thinking I have to the semi-conclusion that one can develop their creativeness in four general ways:
1) Knowing and understanding the blocks to their creativity (social, cultural, intellectual, emotional, etc)
2) Knowing about ones own creativity as well as others (the creative process, motivation, influences, etc)
3) Using creative inducing tools (Brainstorming, Mindmapping, etc)
4) And simply practicing....practicing ones own creativity.
What are the activities that you do to support your creativity abilities? These are things you do that further your creative mind, that enables you to think in original and useful ways. Things you do that enable your mind to be flexible in thinking and helps you to think in many different ways.
Your answers does not have to fall into any of the 4 categories above. Try to be as specific as possible. For example, art might be a way you practice your creativity but what is it about the art and how do you apply it so that it supports your creativity?
