5 Steps for Boosting Creativity

I read this article long time ago and I want share it with you, some nice steps how to boosting creativity. all you need to do is follow these tips and your creativity will be increased ASAP ;)

1. Brainstorm

If properly carried out, brainstorming can help you not only come up with sacks full of new ideas, but can help you decide which is best. Click here for more information on brainstorming.

2. 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. Upon rereading your notes, you may discover about 90% of your ideas are daft. Don’t worry, that’s normal. What’s important are the 10% that are brilliant.

3. 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. The concept is based on a simple but little known truth: freedom inhibits creativity. There are nothing like restrictions to get you thinking.

4. Define your problem

Grab a sheet of paper, electronic notebook, computer or whatever you use to make notes, and define your problem in detail. You’ll probably find ideas positively spewing out once you’ve done this.

5. Don’t watch 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.

See you soon on the next 5 Steps to boosting your creativity.

  1. Use Mind Maps. They are greatly under estimated, but enhance your creativity and memory skills by many orders of magnitude. Use software so you can easily expand your mind maps and use them as information repositories.

  2. Yang paling menarik adalah point ke #5. Don’t watch TV. :d

    Yess! dan tull sekali !
    Tv bikin orang malas dalam segala hal.
    Apalagi acara tv yang tidak bermutu sama sekali seperti sinetron.
    Saya pernah liat orang dari pagi sampe malam cuma duduk nonton sinetron yang sambung-menyambung.

    Boleh sesaat nonton headline news untuk mengetahui perkembangan dalam negeri saat ini.
