My epiphany about creativity
I didn't got the light bulb moment just from reading the definition of creativity in the dictionary and Wikipedia, it took me more research than that.
I am 44, an engineer with a master degree in mechanical design and have recently became aware of the fact that children are much more creative. From the moment I started going to school my creativity level has decreased, we are often unconsciously pushed into a process in which creative thinking is nipped in the bud. During my career at various companies, it has also become clear that creativity is often hindered (the most creative ideas are not created in a dusty office, Google has understood that well). Nevertheless, many modern companies do big efforts to engage their employees in a creative environment.
Once we leave the parental nest, start a career and we start building our life with a house (often with a mortgage loan), a relationship, a marriage and children we are trapped in the so-called rat race. Usually there is no creative thinking in order to become financially independant. It's fear for the unknown that keeps us in the comfort zone.
If you are like me this could also be a solution for you, beware this is not for everyone, it takes courage and perseverance to be successful but it is possible!
