On Creativity

Enhancing Creativity from: Csikszentmihalyi, Mihalyi. Creativity; Enhancing Personal Creativity (1996).

Enhancing personal creativity: Try to be surprised by something every day. Try to surprise at least one person a day. Write down each day what surprised you and how you surprised others. When something strikes a spark in you, take interest. Wake up in the morning with a specific goal to look foward to. Commit to doing things well. Continually increase the level of challenge. Take charge of your schedule. Make time for reflection and relaxation. Shape your space. Start doing more of what you love, less of what you don't. Develop what you lack and want. Shift often from openness to closure, closure to openness. Find a way to express what moves you. Look at problems from as many viewpoints as possible.
