“The human brain needs to suppress obvious ideas in order to reach the most creative ones, according to scientists. These obvious associations are present in both convergent thinking (finding an ‘out-of-the-box’ solution) and also in divergent thinking (when individuals have to come up with several creative ideas).” (from their website)
Just in case you were wondering.
I don’t remember it ever happening to me.
Despite the financial/business word “capital” in the headline, we creative folk can benefit from this, too:
We Christians follow a God that we believe created the universe.
We believe all humans were created in the image and likeness of God.
So we create things in this world as part of being images of God.
God is creative, so are we: priests of creation.
A priest of creation enables this world to praise God in ways it could not do on its own.
We also believe that if you have God’s gift of creativity and bury it in the ground, you will end up weeping and gnashing your teeth.
So go, all of you, and be priests of creation!
