1. Introduction


This talk is intended to help you unlock your creative mind. It is not the same as understanding why you think creatively or what creative thinking means. In fact, it is completely different, at least as far as I know. It’s a way of thinking and working that can actually be learned.

So sit back and read this article, then come back here to watch my TED talk (yes, I know it’s boring) and finally read this blog post if you want to jump in the deep end and learn how to do exactly that.


2. The Creative Process in Detail


One of the most important things you can do to help yourself become a better thinker is to understand how creativity actually works. It’s not just a case of writing down an idea and then thinking it up, it’s a process that takes years to master. Here are five steps you can use to get started:

1) Don’t write down a bunch of ideas – Instead, write down at least three ideas that you really love and really want. Some people find it hard to jot down more than two or three ideas, but for most people it goes much faster if we don’t get stuck too much in our heads.

2) Don’t judge your ideas – As soon as you have one or two good ideas, it’s time to stop judging them. Now you need to be able to see your idea from both sides: what benefits will they bring and what problems will they solve? This is why a lot of people find it so hard to finish their first draft of their first product idea (some even feel like they are the only ones who understand the product enough to come up with an idea).

3) Don’t keep going back and forth on your ideas – When you have several good ideas in your head, don’t continue editing them by writing more notes or rethinking everything again. The best way is usually just starting from scratch! Instead, think about each new idea from both perspectives: what benefits does it bring and why do I like this option better than that?

4) Know when something seems over-complicated – If there’s anything about your creative process that seems too complicated or overwhelming, take some time out and reassess whether it makes sense for you or not. Letting the creative process flow naturally is something many amazing creatives have done for years without realizing it (I’m talking about myself here).

5) Be open-minded – When working on your initial inspiration phase (the first step in the creative process), don’t expect any particular outcome; think just as freely as possible. You should also be open-minded about potential pitfalls along the way; if something doesn’t seem right at first glance, don’t be afraid to ask yourself why that might be. The point isn’t really whether things will work out; rather, having fun while doing so!


3. How You Can Use This Knowledge


I’m sure you have heard of the famous “15 second rule”, which is a shortcut to determine if your idea is good enough. This article goes into much more detail on the topic.


4. Conclusion


We’re going to look at some of the details of the creative process, both for ourselves and for others.

The first part will cover your own creative process and whether it can be improved. We’ll discuss the stages you’ll go through when trying to get something resolved or thinking up a story. Then we’ll look at other people’s creative processes and see how we can improve them.

The second part will cover how others improve their creative processes and share some ideas on how to do it too.
