What is one “creative tip” that can help someone bring more value to their company and their clients?
Scott: Here’s a favorite of mine: The Costume Change. Next time you are tasked to solve a challenge, rather than asking yourself, “What do I think is the best answer?”, make a costume change.
This approach is similar to Halloween, when you dressed up and assumed the role of a different character. In this exercise, you become a competitor, an expert, a consumer, a child, or even da Vinci. Ask yourself, “How would this individual see and solve the problem?” By applying your magical, childlike creativity, you may find a solution YOU had never thought of prior. Always seek new perspective to achieve innovation.
We have to ask, how did you become so good at painting?
Scott: Thank you, but all children grow up drawing and coloring. Most of us put our crayons away as we get older. I just never stopped, I kept at it.
We all have that wonderful creative child still inside. Reach down deep, find that fearless innocent youth— pick up a paint brush, start writing, learn salsa dancing, join the choir, try out for the play, or learn code which is just like learning to read music. Unleash your inner da Vinci then practice, practice, practice. Relive the fun you had as a child creating, and you will find yourself on your way to greatness.
