Case for Creativity

The word, “creativity”, in our society, has mistakenly been limited to only artistic endeavors, but it also encompasses essential parts of everyday life – divergent thinking, problem-solving, and innovation. Whether it's a professional navigating office politics or a child figuring out the right way to construct a sandcastle, creativity is essential and utilized every single day. "We all have creative potential," says Mark Runco, Ph.D., director of the University of Georgia's Torrance Center for Creativity & Talent Development. "Our job as parents and teachers is to help kids fulfill it."

In the modern world, creativity is not a “nice to have” it is a “need to have”. Though some have a natural gift, creativity is a learned behavior. Creativity is a core factor in how you approach things, how you act or react to new circumstances, your proclivity to look at things in different ways, your willingness to question, experiment, and take chances. In other words, creativity is not “what you are” as much as “what you do.”
