Habits that KILL CREATIVITY @habitsguy 7
Have you ever thought about why some people are more creative than others?
People are lazy and likely to spend minimum effort on getting things done.
Our brains like to follow known patterns instead of reinventing a process every single time.
This tendency makes us far less creative and therefore – less efficient.
Here are seven common habits that kill creativity.
1 A creative idea cannot be born in an environment limited by logic and rationality. You’re Too Logical
Logic stifles creativity and blinds you to essential insights from different kinds of analyses, from consumer groups to market.
2 Finding one solution is only the beginning of a long process. You choose the first solution
This habit never motivates you to play with alternative ideas, efficiently killing any creative bone in your body.
3 Many of us think that most questions generate only one correct answer. You believe that there’s only one right answer
There exist many different approaches to tackling a challenge and that’s what makes a field interesting.
4 Being a novice isn’t a bad thing – in fact, it happens to everyone starting a career in a new field. You lack expert knowledge
If you’re new to a discipline, and you never took the time to study the basics properly, you’ll inevitably put a strain on your creativity.
5 A bloated ego will make you miss out on fantastic opportunities for growth and learning. You’ve got too much expert knowledge
If you’re convinced that you know everything, you’re limiting yourself to experience only one side of the industry.
6 Stop mulling over LOTS of data. STOP. You’re overwhelmed by data
Ask or look for just enough information and allow yourself some space for creative thinking.
7 Everyone has a potential for creativity, only most decide that it’s not worth to use it in their daily lives. You just think you’re not creative
Ignorance of the creative process is not lack of creativity – it’s a choice.
