Be Creative

Creativity is the backbone of invention and innovation

The whole idea of being inventive and innovative involves doing something that hasn't been done before. Watch the below episode on my YouTube channel to get an idea of what I am talking about!

I was always raised to have as much creativity as possible - when I was young I did acting and singing and dancing, and I am very thankful for being able to be so creative while I was growing up.

As mentioned above, inventions and innovation involve a creative step. Because of that, it is essential to think 'outside the box' when you are innovating, and to be creative and make something new. Thinking differently to how other people have thought of things will allow you to create something that others haven't thought of.

Strengthen creativity with... Creativity!

If you wan tot get better at being creative, it helps to do other things in your life that are creative and artistic. This way, you can get more used to doing creative things, and will be better at thinking differently to how others think. Some major ways to 'strengthen your creative muscles' are to do something artistic in your life as a hobby. This can be anything at all really, it all helps! 

Here are some ideas that you can look into to try out
  • Music - Singing, playing an instrument
  • Acting
  • Martial Arts
  • Dancing
  • Visual Arts - Painting, Drawing
  • Pottery
  • Photography
  • Video creation - Vlogging, Short movies
  • Blogging
  • Creative writing
  • Street magic
  • SO MANY more...
The idea behind doing something creative is to enable you to strengthen your creative qualities, and to enjoy what you are doing - so make sure that your creative outlet is something that you enjoy, and try to make sure that it is something that requires you to think.
So unfortunately, watching TV does not count as being creative, even though it involves Multimedia...

So get out there, try something new, have fun, and let the benefits from this be shared into everything else you do in life. 

The more you do, the easier it is to be creative, so flex those creative muscles and enjoy the benefits!
