Creativity is a game of trial and error. The only thing under one’s control is the willingness to experiment.

But being a creator doesn’t just happen. You must compel yourself to see in order to mix and match disparate things and tap into imaginative conclusions.

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.”

Albert Einstein

The right brain needs constant firing in order to facilitate new ideas. In fact, it’s the schooling that tries to steal its thunder. However, the synthesis of zero to one thinking and practicality makes for good business.

Creativity is free to practice. With an open mind and the right tools — even if it’s just a napkin and pen — anyone can recreate a theater inside their head.
