Being creative is one of the gifts of being human. We all have the ability to look at the same situation and come up with different ways of solving the puzzle and finding a solution. In fact, this can be one of the most valuable tools we have when it comes to making money, excelling in a career or simply just being great as ourselves. Sometimes it can be difficult to muster a creative answer but there are some things that you can do to make your thought process more creative and perhaps find an answer that you are looking for.
There are questions we ask ourselves all of our lives that can haunt us if we let them. What if that decision was wrong? What if I shouldn’t have done that? What if I had tried out for the chess team in high school? What if I said yes?
There are a million of these questions that you can consume your time with, but they don’t add up to anything in the end because the fact is whatever you are “what if-ing” about didn’t happen, will never happen and so should concern you about as much as what the weather was in Borneo in the year 1656.
One of the most valuable skills a person can develop, in my opinion, is that of asking the right questions. It seems like life keeps bringing experiences that we are consciously looking for. The right question can change your focus, target your awareness and bring you answers that one is looking for.
