Visual and Creative Thinking What we learned from Peter Pan and Willy Wonka Kelsey Ruger, Pop Labs

There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination. Living there, you'll be free if you truly wish to be. Willy Wonka

creativity: cre·a·tiv·i·ty n. the ability to use imagination to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods.

visual thinking: vis·u·al thin·king adj. the practice of using pictures to solve problems, think through issues, and communicate clearly.

Life in the fast lane: In an increasingly fast paced world we don’t make time for creative activities.

Keeping up with the competition: It’s getting harder to innovate, produce new ideas and communicate at this pace.

What About Creativity? This can be overwhelming for many professionals because many of the “standard” we put in place actually limit creative ability and competitiveness.

Wake-up latent childhood abilities As children our world is dominated by stories, pictures and imagination

The Myths of Creativity

MYTH 1: creativity always comes from an epiphany

MYTH 2: there is always a clear path to creativity

MYTH 3: creativity is the result of the lone innovator

MYTH 4: creativity always results in greatness well great ideas anyway...

MYTH 5: I’m not creative

MYTH 6: being creative is a waste of time

MYTH 7: creativity is not for adults or people with serious careers.

A Beautiful Mind Understanding Why These Myths Exist

Beliefs are powerful: The beliefs we have about how the world works often have very emotional origins. These emotions can change how we make decisions, form habits and develop skills.

our need for consistency is stronger than just about any other intrinsic need we have. People will behave in a manner that is consistent with their previously existing self-concept, even when this behavior is unrewarding to them otherwise. Prescott Leaky

Do you have any sacred cows? Sometimes an idea loses it’s meaning over time, but isn’t abandoned because of the investment in it’s past. These ideals are often so immune to criticism that those who challenge them are ignored or marginalized.
