as young children, we were highly creative and adventurous. we knew no boundaries and would play, experiment, question, and use our imagination in the most wondrous of ways. over time, we learned the 'right way to do thing.' we learned to look for the one right answer to probles. we were even tested on knowing the right answer. it was not okay to be different. we never really lose our imagination and creativity. We just don’t take it out and use it, practice it, play with it, or develop it. As a result, many of us now operate within an area that is known and comfortable.
How can you be more creative?
