Make it a Habit

Lidor Wyssocky

When we face a concrete challenge, we often feel we need a creative solution. That’s why Creative Problem-solving is a skill in demand in many job descriptions.

At the same time, we must not ignore the fact that like any skill, creativity requires practice – ongoing practice.

If you are not doing anything creative day after day after day, if you are not stimulating your mind to see things differently, the chances for you to come up with an innovative solution in “crisis mode” are significantly lower.

Creativity is not just a skill – it’s a habit. And in order to built it as a habit we must generate as many chances as possible to practice it. As a side effect, many activities we do will take a surprising turn for the best.
