What is creativity? It is the use of imagination and original ideas to create something. Robert E. Franken defines creativity as the tendency to generate or recognize ideas, alternatives or possibilities that may be useful in solving problems, communicating with others, and entertaining ourselves and others. According to Linda Naiman, it is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. It involves two process: thinking, and executing, she explains. “If you have ideas but don’t act on them, you are imaginative but not creative.”
If you paint or sing, or draw interesting conclusions from boring data sheets, or even use your commuting time effectively, you are creative.
