Sustentation of creativity

Last week, my eyes catched by one accidently encountered article at the newest resourse of Twitter developers named Medium. (for those who`re interested, the Beta version operating here).

The article was about the value of our spontaneous ideas and the crucial difference that they can eventually bring us if kept. Briefly talking, the author of the writing gave distinct advice based on his own experience of using his old ideas that he documented somewhere at a reachable after some time (months, years) place. He was full of confidence that people shouldn`t only approach others in order to find desired help in writing academic works, business plans, newspaper articles or presentation speeches. A goal of strengthening any kind of CREATIVITY can be reached with applying to your own thoughts from the past. This is type of an opportunity to coperate with yourself, only the earlier version. And thinking logically, this really makes sence.

Listening to the Ken Robinso's speech at TED, —>  I was profoundly convincing in the reasonableness of the above listed statement. Robinson made it clear and obvious that the modern educational systems destroy children`s ability to be creative. In his opinion, the lessons of math, science and other accurate disciplines provided and given with important attention, whilst the ability of development for not future academics does not exist. Particularly, he gave a crowing example, talking of a little girl who was considered as having some kind of disease cause of impossibility of staying still.

This girl wasn`t sick as a matter of fact, she was just a dancer, a dancer from the heart. And to think, she needed to move, so that giving her to a dancing classes was the smartest decision ever taken by her mother. Now, the girl is a milioner, the founder of a world known dancing school. Ask yourself a question what would have happened if she continued learning only math? The truth is that hundred of millions of children still do. Another yet significant point addressed by Ken Robinson is the schools incorrect treatment of mistakes. Ordinarly, they are punished with bad marks and considered bad by all means possible. Although in the real world, they are neccesary to succeed. Moreover, mistakes is the only path to creativity and obtaining critical ability to have distinctive view on common points. Modern educational systems truly put the light only under one angle limiting children to proceed in what they really want and are talented at.

All together, these two ideas of two authors can be deservedly combined in conclusive thesis: Creativity is neccessary for people to achieve set life goals. Doing so is possible when you try hard time and time over, and cooperate with other people, ideas, experiences. However, there is one other option to resort — to rely on yourself. Writing and storing your own ideas, notions, feelings etc., can sometime subliminaly complete your bag, lacking this one thing for a journey.
