Creative Thinking
1010204 Creative ThinkingWhen I ask workshop participants to raise their hands if they feel they are creative, only about 20 percent raise their hands! Then I ask how many dream at night—and, of course, most everyone raises their hand. Who creates the fantastic plots, who creates those ridiculous characters, and where do all of those totally unexpected things come from? The answer, of course, is your own brain, because you are creative! Our challenge is to have creative ideas while we are awake, not just while we are asleep.
