HOW TO DEVELOP YOUR CREATIVITY IN 3 WEEKS?

Many people say they have no creativity.

First, I realize that these people have a lack of knowledge of the word creative, they very often associate it with art (drawing, photo, sculpture, etc.).

But creativity is: the power of creation and inventiveness.

By developing your creativity this can provide a number of important advantages:

  • Ability to find a solution quickly
  • Find the most optimal solution for a specific situation
  • Do not limit yourself to the first solution but have a range of solutions
  • Rejuvenate the brain
  • Improve memory
  • Improve concentration
  • Secreting happiness hormones.
  • Develop self-confidence
  • Improve your general knowledge
  • Strengthen your emotional intelligence

“Creativity has no limit except itself”.  What does it mean ?

Creativity touches all areas!
I was surprised to discover that I was very creative in terms of the financial package. I like to find atypical and daring economic models that allow a game-changer for the activity of a company.

You can be creative in dealing with crisis, conflict or litigation. Your creativity allows you to see the problem from another angle and therefore allows you to find solutions that will solve your problems!

(For the record, I decided to write this article following the Visio exchange with Olivier Lambert, who said that the future lies in the ability to create good content.

I had a small bulb in my head wanting to share my experience and the expertise that I have been able to acquire over time to develop my creativity. I have tested these exercises several times which work 100%, it’s just a matter of will!)

1. How does creativity work?

First good news: we all have the same number of neurons, our brain is made up of 100 billion neurons! (except in exceptional cases, accident or illness)

Second good news: It is not the number of neurons that make your intelligence but your synapses!

Synapses are the neurotransmitters of information, it is the “thread” that connects neurons to each other.

I will popularize some scientific notions through this article for ease of understanding.

In short :

  • Neurons “store” data, and synapses are the link between its data.
  • Synapses are very malleable, contrary to what medicine has thought for a very long time.
  • We can make as many synaptic connections as there are neurons.

And let me show you with a very artistic drawing the possibilities of synapses.

Case n ° 1: the circles represent the neurons, and the red lines the synapses.

CAS% 20N% C2% B01

Case n ° 2: The information goes from A to B or C

Case% 20N% C2% B02

Case n ° 3: Information circulates between each neuron

Case% 20n% C2% B03

We have just seen 3 possible types of structures between neurons:

  • Case N ° 1: For information A to reach C, it must go through B.
  • Case N ° 2: The information of A circulates faster than case N ° 1 but B and C are not connected to each other.
  • Case N ° 3: Neurons are all linked to each other allowing rapid information

In short, the more synaptic links you have, the more intersecting data you have  .

A datum + a datum = an idea.
A car + an airplane = a flying car.

(Moreover, this is the main difficulty of artificial intelligence, and as long as this barrier exists, AI still has a way to go).

To sum up, creativity is therefore a crossing of information. Creativity is not just linked to the amount of information, but to the way of joining them together.

2. How to develop your creativity?

Creativity is like a muscle!

Does a Body Builder come to this already muscular world? We agree that it takes work and practice, and impeccable discipline.

The first time you go to the gym, the first sessions are exhausting, you can’t do as much as the guy in the tank top who pushes 3 times more weight than you… Not to mention the aches that can be dissuasive to continue and results which take a long time to arrive …

Yet there is no secret:  Rigor + diet = guaranteed results.

The same goes for creativity:

Your effort: it is to come out with an idea (little reminder: 1 idea = 1 given + 1 given)

An idea = an idea! I here is no good or bad idea,  this is tied to your perception and judgment staff.

So don’t judge your ideas if they are good or bad, let them speak!

In bodybuilding, a stress is an opportunity to develop muscle;
In everyday life, every problem is an opportunity to express your creativity!

In short:  to be creative you have to practice, experiment, drafts until you find your masterpiece!

3. What exercises to develop creativity?

I got creative when I was 18, if you ask me to draw I will always draw so bad. But ask me to design a way to go to the moon without fuel and sipping scotch  there maybe something I can do.

Creativity goes through two phases:  DIVERGENCE & CONVERGENCE .

People who read this article also read:   The Characteristics of an Incisive Personality

The Divergence  : You drop all your ideas onto a medium (get it out of your head) WITHOUT ANY LIMITS OR RESTRICTIONS.

It is important ! Many restrain themselves by saying sentences like: “no that is not possible”.

The goal of the divergence is not to say what is possible or not, but to find inventive and limitless solutions which may eventually give way to other solutions …

Convergence:  this is when you can afford to establish criteria, conditions, restrictions to refine the idea.

Respect the divergence stage, it is this that will allow you to develop your creativity.

Now for the exercises:

Invent 2 objects per day for 3 weeks.

The instructions are very simple, every day morning and evening, take 5 minutes to create an object.

There are several ways to invent an object:

AT. BY ASSOCIATION OF ELEMENTS

My first idea was: a flying trash can. It’s simple, I was walking, I saw a trash can, and a bird next to it, I combined the two, I invented the flying trash; D!

I’m going to try to invent an object as I write this article… A cotton suitcase!

That’s it I just made my idea of ​​the evening!

The exercise sounds simple, but believe me, it requires you to use your creativity by putting two random objects together.

B. BY THE ALTERNATIVE

If you can’t reach someone on the phone, what do you do? You text him.

The alternative is another way to solve his problems. And I’m sure you use it daily without knowing it:

When you are tired of standing for a very long time, strangely anything that has a surface of 30cm² and which is 30cm from the ground becomes a chair!

Example:
I see a document bound by a spiral next to me, how could I bind the document otherwise?
It has to be linked, stapled, glued… What if I glued them? But I don’t have any glue? What is sticking? The fruits when they are all over the place… What if I rub a little banana on the leaves to bind them together?

(Ok it may not be very aesthetic! But the idea is there!)

Henri Ford said “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have answered faster horses”

VS. BY THE PROBLEM

Here is one of the most common solutions.
Every problem has a solution. When you experience a problem like “it’s too hot”, it triggers an action / solution: “you turn on the air conditioner”.

If you are thirsty, you drink water.

If you find that you are spending too much time publishing your Facebook posts, then you invent a solution to save time (posting scheduling, hootsuit).

Take the time to see how the inventions came about, you will see that there are thousands of examples.

In short all you have to do is just when you have a problem ask yourself the following question: “How can I fix this problem?” “.

It will stimulate your creativity.

D. THROUGH AWARENESS

WHAT ?!  Yes, awareness is quite an esoteric notion, but it works in a lot of things.

The awareness to develop creativity is as follows:

Find any object around you, and become aware of its complexity and all that it represents.

I have a sofa in front of me: the sofa is made of fabrics and synthetic leather, it has 4 plastic feet and a few patterns.

I have in front of me the association of several inventions: the discovery / invention of plastic, the invention of synthetic leather and an artist who made the patterns.

This is how an inventor, an industrialist and an artist ended up in my room.

Take the first object around you and shell it!

To conclude

Creativity is a muscle that is accessible to everyone, and has no limits on growth. It is developed by several means, you are free to choose the method you like.

I presented you 4 methods of creativity, know that they interpenetrate! The more you know how to combine these methods, the stronger your creativity will be.

I challenge you to finish:

  • Invent 2 objects per day for 3 weeks
  • Share (if you wish) your ideas for inventions here
  • Once shared here, the objective will be either to make them technically possible, or to find them an economic model!

To your neurons!

Many people say they have no creativity.
