How To Be More Creative - Pt. 2

Creativity is something that I love to discuss with you. It is the driving force behind every great thing in this world like the pyramids, iPod and Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

Are you creative?

How do you know if someone is creative? If you ask me, the answer is simple: if you think you are creative, you are. And if you don't, then you won't. A similar annoying idea has been expressed by Henry Ford as well: "Whether
You Think You Can or Can't, You're Right".

A simple tip to increase your creativity

Visit a playground. Observe what kids are doing there. See if it makes you smile. It should take less than a minute to feel it. This is very important, because when you are happy you are almost there. Tension kills creativity. The children don't even know what the word tension means. So it is a safe zone to be in. Even if you don't feel any more creative than a minute than before you visited the playground, at least you should be feel little bit happier.

I walk every day twice across a small playground next to my office, before and after work. Every time it makes me smile to see those little wonders playing without a worry in the world. No matter what kind of the weather, there is always someone with a face like a million euros. Playgrounds are places where the creative energy is flowing around. You just need to pick some of that spirit to yourself. It's like re-charging your batteries.

If you don't get any rushes of creativity immediately, you definitely feel more happier. That's a guarantee or your money back.
