CREATIVITY IS AN ESSENTIAL LIFE SKILL
Creativity may seem like a mysterious quality or skill only available to a special few. Famous artists and poets, perhaps. In fact, the skills and habits that make up creative thinking and problem-solving are not mysterious at all (though they never lose that shiver of magic!). Research on what makes creative people tick has come a long way over the past decades, and what it`s finding is amazing. For a start, creativity is just as important for a successful, flexible athlete, engineer, architect, molecular biologist, parent or baker as it is for artists. Creativity isn’t just a feeling; it’s productive and generates things and ideas that are both novel and useful. Even more intriguing: it turns out that creative thinking skills are simple and can be learned. As with any other exercise, working your creative `muscles` makes them stronger.
