How To Be Creative Every Day
As a performer/writer creativity is key to my success. I have to keep creating new material , characters, voices all the time. Along with approaches to finding work. The question is: How do you define Creativity? Creativity is defined as the tendency to generate or recognize ideas, alternatives, or possibilities that may be useful in solving problems, communicating with others, and entertaining ourselves and others. But what drives people to be creative? Three reasons why people are motivated to be creative:
- need for novel, varied, and complex stimulation
- need to communicate ideas and values
- need to solve problems
In order to be creative, you need to be able to view things in new ways or from a different perspective. Among other things, you need to be able to generate new possibilities or new alternatives. Tests of creativity measure not only the number of alternatives that people can generate but the uniqueness of those alternatives. the ability to generate alternatives or to see things uniquely does not occur by change; it is linked to other, more fundamental qualities of thinking, such as flexibility, tolerance of ambiguity or unpredictability, and the enjoyment of things heretofore unknown. From Human Motivation, 3rd ed., by Robert E. Franken. My view on creativity is more simplistic, it is the ability to take different ideas that are floating in the universal consciousness and bring them together in a new and exciting way.
