Topic 1 Introduction

‘Creativity is the ability of a person or group to make something new and useful or valuable, or the process of making something new and useful or valuable. It happens in all areas of life – science, art, literature and music.’  (Wikipedia, 2021)

Having a creative mind helps us to try new things and engage in activities that help us go closer to realizing our full potential. Creativity is the ability to imagine something that does not exist, to do something in different ways than anyone else, and to develop new ideas. Creativity allows ordinary, everyday things to be special, and special things to become more natural things in everyday life. At its core, creativity can be defined as being able to see or grasp something in a way that others cannot.

Creativity is not innate as most people know. Of course, there may be some positive transfers that are innate, from our childhood, from our past life. However, creativity is a skill that can be developed and learned. If you work, read and deal with this issue, you can see more opportunities and be more creative.
