How to get creative in the face of change

brushes-crayons-pens-creativity-tools

Change is the order of the day, and if we want to thrive during change, we need to try new ideas to find new ways of doing things.

How do we get new ideas to try?

You can see or read about what others are doing, but you are the expert on your life, so how do YOU come up with new ideas that could make a difference in YOUR life?

Very often, thinking more creatively is simply a matter of tapping into your thinking in a certain way. Here are some simple tools to kindle our inherent creativity.

Digital thinker (use the Law Breaker tool)
Operational thinker (use the SCAMPER tool)
Animated thinker (use the Great Minds tool)
Creative thinker (use the Random Object tool)

Think of a specific issue you want to solve. Write it down; define it.

Now use these tools to create new ideas; test them and notice what happens.

Go on. Give it a go. What have you got to lose?

And anyway, if you keep doing the same old things…

My best wishes, Paul
