How To Be More Creative: Resources

This series of posts offers articles, books and other resources on developing creative thinking and innovation, and enhancing our creative expression.

My other Creative Mind posts, hopefully, do that as well – but these new posts specifically provide brief excerpts of selected material by other authors that have a more “how to” flavor. Feel free to make any comments or suggestions.

Creative Thinking: How to Be More Creative (with Science!)

by Gregory Ciotti

“Have you ever wished you were more creative? If you do creative work, have you ever suffered from a creative block and been stuck wondering what exactly is wrong, and how you can get yourself out of it?”


Can limitations make you more creative? Q&A with artist Phil Hansen

“The theme of transcending constraints and roadblocks was a major theme at TED 2013. While Hansen said in his talk, “Embracing the limitation can actually drive creativity … We need to first be limited in order to become limitless,” filmmaker Martin Villeneuve echoed the sentiment in his talk about making a sci-fi movie for $2 million.”


The Creativity Summit [Free online program]

Hosted by Dr. Ron Stotts – “16 Top Thought Leaders, Business Experts, & Entrepreneurs Share Their Creative Approach to Ever-Expanding Success and Personal Fulfillment. A no-cost event.”

“We hear phrases like “think outside the box,” but how can we actually do that? It feels like there’s no time to explore. No room for passion. No patience for ideas that don’t conform to what’s already known and accepted.

“This mindset, this culture, this game plan for ‘success’ ends up smothering your greatest asset in achieving the success, wealth, and fulfillment you’ve been dreaming of. So what is that greatest asset? It’s your creativity.”
