The Mind at Play.... what the Heck does that mean??
I think of creativity as problem solving. There is no book with the solution to every possible problem we may be faced with , we must utilize our creativity and our knowledge to solve them.
"Creative People" Allow their minds to play.. to think outside the lines, to look for and find the potential in things. We are All creative, whether it is necessity that inspires us, or a whim. Can you imagine a world without creativity?? Imagine if Bill Gates didn't approach computer software with a creative thought, or if Accountants didn't use a creative approach to their work.. we would still be using typewriters and paying even more tax. We would never cure anything,We would only have one flavor of Hamburger Helper, One kind of Coke and one style of painting... Life would be boring!!
So the next time you hear someone claim that they have NO Creativity.....Ask them if they ever substituted Tuna for the hamburger, or added apples to the salad? Changed a recipe to suit them or made curtains from bed sheets.
Creativity is the Mind at play..... So PLAY!!
