“Creativity is not a talent. It is a way of operating.”

This is a great short clip on the tactics for being a creative thinker. Enjoy!

  • Space (“You can’t become playful, and therefore creative, if you’re under your usual pressures.”)
  • Time (“It’s not enough to create space; you have to create your space for a specific period of time.”)
  • Time (“Giving your mind as long as possible to come up with something original,” and learning to tolerate the discomfort of pondering time and indecision.)
  • Confidence (“Nothing will stop you being creative so effectively as the fear of making a mistake.”)
  • Humor (“The main evolutionary significance of humor is that it gets us from the closed mode to the open mode quicker than anything else.”)
