Why Creative Thinking?
Encouraging yourself to be creative comes in handy when creating works of art and literature. But creative thinking can help you explore areas you do not normally go to.
Although some of us are more naturally open to new ideas and able to put them to innovative uses, we are all able to use our creative thinking to apply when trying to reach our goals or overcome obstacles.
How Do I Think Creatively?
Attempting to think creatively aids you with unlocking your creative potential
Creativity is Unpredictable
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” ~ Thomas Merton
Creative Process:
Cultivating Creativity

We are able to find inspiration to any idea when we encourage our creative thinking.
Don't be an "idea killer"
Whether creativity comes naturally or not, favorable conditions can be put in to play to help with the creative thinking and spark inspiration.
We are able to cultivate the creative mind of others by following the mindset of a creative thinker.
These are the characteristics that creative people have been noted to have
The reality is, that creative problem solving seems to be straight forward, but when dealing with actual challenges that are not so easy to solve, the methodical processes do not help you explore when you are stuck.
This is where we consider the characteristics of creative people to help us with achieving and increasing creative success.

These characteristics will help you with exploring other options and considering different aspects when confronted with creative challenges.
