Fostering Creativity

Daniel Pink, in his 2005 book A Whole New Mind, repeating arguments posed throughout the 20th century, argues that we are entering a new age where creativity is becoming increasingly important. In this conceptual age, we will need to foster and encourage our right-directed thinking (representing creativity and emotion). Over left-directed thinking (representing logical, analytical thought). When I was reading this article, I’m really interested with the author way of think. It is simply let us know we should develop our brain function to survive in these days. This is a few tips that I get from many sources that could help us develop our creativity, may this could encourage you… Happy trying people!!!

•    Listen to music by Johann Sebastian Bach, listening to classical music can make you more creative!


•    Brainstorming can help you not only come up with sacks full of new ideas, but can help you decide

which option is the best one!

•    Always carry a small notebook and a pen or pencil around with you. That way, if you are struck by an idea, you can quickly note it down.
•    If you’re stuck for an idea, open a dictionary, randomly select a word and then try to formulate ideas incorporating this word. You’d be surprised how well this works!
•    Define your problem. Grab a sheet of paper, electronic notebook, computer or whatever you use to make notes, and define your problem in detail.
•    If you can’t think, go for a walk. A change of atmosphere is good for you and gentle exercise helps shake up the brain cells.


•    Don’t watch too much TV. Experiments performed by the JPB Creative Laboratory show that watching TV causes your brain to slowly trickle out your ears and/or nose. It’s not pretty, but it happens!
•    Read as much as you can about everything possible.
•    Exercise your brain. Brains, like bodies, need exercise to keep fit(e.g; reading a lot talking to clever people and disagreeing with people ).
