Creativity and Innovation

I have a habit of making a draft of the posts, keep it for few days/months. Read it. Re-Read it. After all that if I find it convincing I am all set to post it. Below is one such post with a little difference. I've not written this post, don't even remember the source or why I saved it, but feeling it's worth sharing with my creative blog pals.

Are you a question generating machine? Then u surely an inventor.

“If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?” Einstein Inspiration can start the process, but no matter how complete the initial idea, inventions typically have to be developed.

For example, Amabile et al. (1996) suggest that while innovation "begins with creative ideas,"
"...creativity by individuals and teams is a starting point for innovation; the first is a necessary but not sufficient condition for the second."

If it was there why didn't I find it or u found.

A situation and so many ways to solve it. Taken a possibility u go on solving it can't u come out with that soln.

Graham Wallas & Richard Smith, in their work Art of Thought, published in 1926, presented one of the first models of the creative process. In the Wallas stage model, creative insights and illuminations may be explained by a process consisting of 5 stages:
(i) preparation (preparatory work on a problem that focuses the individual's mind on the problem and explores the problem's dimensions),
(ii) incubation (where the problem is internalized into the unconscious mind and nothing appears externally to be happening),
(iii) intimation (the creative person gets a 'feeling' that a solution is on its way),
(iv) illumination or insight (where the creative idea bursts forth from its preconscious processing into conscious awareness); and
(v) verification (where the idea is consciously verified, elaborated, and then applied).

"Creativity is the ability to illustrate what is outside the box from within the box." -The Ride

To elaborate on one example, Einstein, after years of fruitless calculations, suddenly had the solution to the general theory of relativity revealed in a dream “like a giant die making an indelible impress, a huge map of the universe outlined itself in one clear vision.”

How you shape your day? You r actually shaping your dream. So carefully craft it.
