One of the key areas of creative thinking is problem solving.
My blog this week was going to be a video on another topic...but I had a problem with it. Actually I wasn't very happy with it. I didn't think I had quite got my message across as well as I'd hoped.
Putting the video to one side, I got to thinking that we all encounter problems sometimes and when we do what we need is a creative solution to hand.
There are many different techniques to use but here is one which James Webb Young published in his book A Technique to Producing Ideas. In it he describes five essential creative thinking steps you can use when in search of a solution.
When you do receive the fabulous solution you are looking for, you will forget the pain of overcoming it along the way.
