is your key to the future. All progress comes about as the result of finding
better, faster, cheaper, easier or
different ways to do things and this
requires the continual honing of
your creative thinking skills.
Job At Work
One of the key functions of the executive is
problem solving, which takes up as much
as 50 percent of
executive time. It can be said with some confidence that
your ability to deal with problems creatively and effectively is the key
determinant of your success as a manager. It would be hard to imagine an
effective executive who could not solve problems and make decisions with a
high level of competence.
You Are A
I've studied and lectured on
for years and I've come to the conclusion that there is virtually
no problem you cannot
solve, no goal you cannot achieve, no obstacle you cannot overcome if
you know how to apply the
creative powers of
your mind, like a laser beam, to cut
through every difficulty in
your life and your work.
The benefits of functioning with more creativity can
be enormous. Each of us wants to
earn more money,
be promoted faster, and enjoy greater status, prestige and recognition. In
most cases however, we can only earn more by producing more or of better
quality or cheaper or faster Ė and this requires doing things differently,
Your Own Acceleration
The good news is that
creativity is a skill and
a talent that can be learned and developed through practice. With this
skill, you can dramatically accelerate your personal and professional
growth. By sharpening your thinking skills and exercising your natural
creative powers, you can multiply the value of your efforts and rapidly
increase the quantity and quality of your rewards.
Here are two things you can do immediately to
be more creative:
See yourself as a professional
and look upon every difficulty or challenge as an opportunity to develop
your creative powers.
Look for problems you can solve and
obstacles you can overcome. The more you seek for answers and ideas, the
more creative you become.
