Creativity: 4 Steps To Get Yours Going

   By: Jeff Herring

Here's a four step process to get your creativity going:

1) Precisely define your goal.

The more precisely you define a goal the more likely you are to get it and recognize it when it arrives. You cannot reach a goal that you do not have.

2) Identify efforts that have not worked in the past and drop them.

Don't stay stuck. Remember that you are stuck when you keep doing the same things that don't work over and over again and expect different results.

If it's not working, it's not working. Don't try to come up with new and better ways to ride a dead horse.

3) Come up with crazy, silly, bizarre, outlandish ways to achieve your goal, that you would never do, but are fun to think about.

One of the best paths to creativity is humor. Take it.

4) Come up with creative ideas that will get you where you want to go.

Sometimes the seeds for these creative ideas are in the crazy ideas. Other times, simply laughing at the crazy ideas will boost your creative juices for other solutions.

Remember how creative you were as a kid? The things you could build, the games you could create, the stories you told. Why not use the same creativity as an adult?
