Creativity is a skill. When you train it, you get better and more productive at it. One of the hardest parts about improving your creativity is that we tend to think of creativity as a talent: someone is either creative or not.
But creativity can be learned, grown, and expressed in many ways. Communicating a vision, idea, or problem all require a creative, persuasive messaging.
To solve a problem is to invent hundreds of different possible solutions and executing on the one that is most likely to success.
Creativity is about volume. The first, second, or third ideas are likely bad ones. That’s OK — embrace that you are just warming up.
Our egos and sense of self-worth are fragile. Especially if you’re surrounded by peers who are successful lawyers, doctors, musicians, business owners, etc.
They’re fears that hold us back from getting to the core problem: how many times do I have to put myself out there before someone takes me seriously?
