Creativity - 7 Sparking Tips to Get It

Creativity is what you get when you strongly desire to solve a problem. Here are the 7 sparking tips:

1. Casual Conversation: A new idea emerges when you talk to colleagues during a coffee break or it happens when you talk to your family members, Ideas develop when you indulge in free association of thoughts, wishful thinking and daydreaming.

2. Sharing Information: A free flow of information between people and departments is an essential means of capturing, reinforcing and disseminating ideas by the imaginative use of information.

3. A broader perspective: Go beyond your own area of work. Expose yourself to non-related issues such as politics, fashion and religion.

4. Intuitive action: According to research by the International Institute of Management Development (IMD) in Lausanne, Switzerland intuition plays a vital role in how people reach effective decisions. Allow your “gut feeling” to work wonder.

5. Avoid pressure: Working long hours and under pressure inhibits creativity. There is no chance for you to learn and enrich your life outside of your work.

6. Sleep Over it: One effective way of getting new ides is to sleep over it. You think very hard about a problem at hand and then you go to sleep and forget about it. Before you know when you wake up in the morning a new idea is already in your mind.

7. A conducive environment: Nurture the free flow of your creative juice in a situation that works best for you. For me a quiet room without the distractions of outside noise at a tidy desk suits me. Avoid interruptions.

According to Thomas Edison genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.
