Conclusion

Creativity Exercise 1: Free Writing
06:43

Introduction
A good way to introduce new ideas or discover new ways of looking at things is to introduce random elements.

- Why Randomize?
Randomizing the creative process helps you think of ideas you otherwise wouldn't have considered.

Choose a random word or image to use as a starting point for the creative process.

- Making New Connections
Mix up various elements randomly to create new associations and connections.

- Pick a Number, Any Number

Creativity Exercise 2 – Randomize
07:16

Introduction
One way to come up with new ideas is to take a commonly held assumption and do the exact opposite.

- Examples of Opposites
Examples of taking the opposite tack and creating new, original ideas.

- Destroying Common Assumptions
You can find these original ideas by taking a simple phrase and turning it around. The opposite doesn't need to be accurate to stimulate your creativity.

- Experimenting with Opposites
You can use the opposites approach in many different ways to come up with ideas.

- Comparing and Contrasting
A similar approach is to take two things that are unlike each other and discovering their similarities. You can also take two things that are similar and show how they're different.

Conclusion
The opposites approach is especially effective for brainstorming.

A child is more interested in the process than the end result.

- Questions to Help You Think Like a Child
Questions to stimulate your childlike creative mind.

- Get out the Board Games
A good way to nurture this inner child is to play children's games.

Introduction
A mind map is a visual brainstorming tool made up of bubbles that contain ideas and lines that connect these ideas.

Start with a central idea in the middle and branch out with related ideas.

There are many mind mapping tools that make the process easier and more fun.
