Creativity is not reserved just for those who engage in artistic pursuits. In every life, in every situation, there are opportunities to be creative.

Being creative means acknowledging that there are many possibilities beyond the obvious. Being creative means having the courage to consider doing things in a way that's different than the way they've always been done.

Creativity gives us the ability to solve multiple problems with a single course of action. It transforms weakness into strength and builds value where there was none before.

Imagine the possibility of a connection between things that don't appear to be connected, and creativity will start to take hold. Look at the situation from a new perspective and it will further nourish your creativity.

Being creative means refusing to accept limits. With sufficient creativity we can move beyond any obstacle.
