ARE YOU HITTING a brick wall on a great idea?
Simple changes in how you think and act can unlock creative potential and develop solutions to old problems. Here are some techniques:
• “Sleep on it” – the old adage of ‘sleep on it’ is very real and has been well researched. Your question is directed to your unconscious mind which starts working out the solution.
• “Label yourself” – if you think it, you believe it – according to research. Researchers found those who considered themselves creative sought out more creative opportunities and therefore spent more time being creative.
• “Colour me red” – orange, red and yellow are the colours of creativity. Research shows warm colours promote divergent thinking – the necessary process for coming up with multiple ideas. Paint that wall or start wearing red!
• “Quirky works” – we often think creative people need to work in tech environments with sleek designer tables and white chairs. Far from it – the more diverse, crazy and zany the work station, the better it is for creativity.
