How to awake your creativity

“Creativity is the power to connect what seems incoherent.” ~ William Plomar

Can we really become more creative?

 Being creative is a skill that can revive  only if we are willing to do so. Each one of us has the ability to create, explore and play. Each one is set in a natural curiosity that constantly provokes the question: “How does the world create’”. Over time we have began to stifle that part of ourself.


 Usually, the human brain craves to go down the easy path, not the most creative. It is lazy by nature. When faced with a problem, the brain first looks in its database for ready solutions that have been used in the past and have been unsuccessful. He does not waste energy to generate a new solution when old ones can work just as fine.

What happens if you put yourself tempted to challenge your brain?Start putting it in different or more complex issues than those that are used to handle Then go beyond the standard and increase your creativity.

Anything can inspire us. We can increase creativity step by step.

Gain a first time experience! Take:

  • – A digital camera or camera phone
  • – Notepad and pen
  • – Folders, boxes, scrapbook, message board.

Another way to increase creativity is to change the habits and stereotypes.

Do you have a strict routine in your daily life? Do you get up at the same time,do  you dress a certain way, do you go to work as you walk down the same road every day, in two words do you move on autopilot?

This is a killer for your creativity!

Why do we remember the shape of a paper clip ?

Like a miracle : take a paper clip , unfold it and deform , then holding the tip of the pliers gently hold it briefly over a candle flame and it becomes again the same as before . How is this possible?

Take your time to try , it will not work with each clip . ” Privileged “ are those of a special alloy metal called “shape memory” . When heated, they ” remember “ what they looked like in the process of production before being chilled, and return to it’s original state .

The most successful one is nitinolat alloy – of nickel and titanium.  Copper and zinc , copper, nickel and aluminum work better. They can exist in two structures – the high temperature austenite and martensite low . The transition between them is provided by the temperature changes.


“Remember “ metals are used in many fields – from medicine to aerospace . For example, stent expansion artery is inserted easily into the blood vessel and unfolds only when it reaches its destination . Extensive use in braces to correct teeth , and frames of glasses – not a tragedy if someone sits on them and bent. Especially valuable are those alloys in the manufacture of artificial satellites , in particular for the part of the solar panels. They are sent into space folded to occupy less space in the rocket , and deploy them only when heated by the sun. They find a place even in underwired bras . The transition from one phase to another can be effected not only by a change in temperature. There are materials that ” remember “ the shape with the help of magnetic fields.


Memory metals are used in automobiles – Spring example. Nitinolat occurs in fire sensors in robotics . It is believed that in the future these metals will produce artificial limbs – arms and legs that can be tailored to each individual patient. By having a good memory metals will make active structures that will move as prosthetic muscles.

The effect of metal shape memory was discovered in 1932 by Swedish researcher Arne Olader in an alloy of gold and cadmium. Nitinolat was born in 1962 at Naval Research Laboratory in the U.S..


Do it yourself: candles with seashells

Most of us like to collect shells on the beach, as they have many good memories that can bring in your home. Today’s proposal is to make beautiful candles in sea shells . It is best to choose deeper shells as they burn longer .

First clean the shells and leave to dry. Melt paraffin or candles in a water bath (use a vessel that can easily pour the liquid ) . Can melt candles different colors – such as pink , purple and yellow will get a coral color that fits many of the marine -themed candles .

If the shell is not stable and shake can put it on the neck of a glass cup.

Pour the melted wax into the oyster , then place ready wicks candles (sold as a package , each tipped with a metal tip ) and place one in the middle of each oyster. Be careful not to burn your fingers . If the fuse klyumva , cut it a bit . Allow the wax to harden for about 30 minutes.

Already have great candles that will remind you of the sea.


How to be creative

You and I have been taught to think in words. When we form a thought – whatever it will take the form of a statement, which quickly and stir . The whole world is breathless .

Nothing builds confidence better success . But the most creative minds in the history of thinking in images , not words. Albert Einstein claimed that rarely think in words.

Ideas come into his head in the form of images, which he later attempts to express in words or formulas.


William Harvey watched the heart of live fish, when suddenly I saw it as a pump . Frank Lloyd Wright thought the houses and buildings not as separate entities but as an integral part of the landscape.

Alfred Wegener noticed that the western part of Africa fits in the eastern part of South America, and comprehended that all continents were once part of a single continent. Ray saw me as a female torso cello .

Einstein was wondering how the world would look like through the eyes of a man who rides through space astride a light beam.

In trying to capture the concept of infinity mathematician David Hilbert imagined hotel with an infinite number of rooms at this busy.

Then imagine that comes a new guest who wants to rent a room . Of course, the receptionist responded and moved people from one room to room two , this one room two room three , this three – four , etc. to infinity .

Ultimately room one is released for the new guest.

Lord Kevin finds the idea of ​​a mirror galvanometer when he sees the reflection of the light in his monocle .

Freud realizes the idea of ​​sublimation of instincts , watching two pictures – the first little girl feeds a flock of geese with a stick in hand, the second girl has grown up and is now a governess , and feed the flock little girl with an umbrella in his hand.

Niels Bohr imagined the atom looks like a solar system. Newton suddenly sees that the moon looks like an apple – just reduced apple while eating.

When Bill Bartley , artdirektor advertising agency , I had to create an ad , praising the leadership of the company , he saw the image of Churchill in his famous character V, Robert E. Lee – in battle, and Vince Lombardi – swept through the course of his players.

All these people do not think in words. They think in images , see the relationship , imagine metaphors in their heads spinning ideas.

“Once we get the visual idea, words are a piece of cake job .” Once you imagine the reduction in production as narrow-necked bottle , with a dam in the river or a car parked on the highway , you can start expanding the neck of the bottle to overcome the barrier or to fix the damage to the car.

And the next time you encounter a problem , try to visualize it instead verbalized . Looks like this problem? What’s it like ? What creates a picture in your mind ?
