Rethinking Creativity In Business

Using creative hacks to your advantage

You Are Creative

Guess what? You’re a creator.

Whether you believe it or not, there’s a certain level of creativity it takes to run a business— even if you don’t view your expertise as “artsy”. Maybe you’re an avid artist; maybe you’ve been told you don’t have a creative bone in your body. Wherever you exist on the creative spectrum, it’s in you.

Many people assume creativity means colors, designs, and the ability to make good-looking pieces of work. While those things do apply to creation, they aren’t everything. There are always methods to creatively optimize your business. It’s not all strategy 24/7.

Any act of using your skills or knowledge to improve (or produce) something is an act of creation. Even the simple act of making decisions— one after the other— makes you an artist in your life. Creation isn’t black or white. Everyone uses different tools to generate meaningful results.

In business, it can be easy to get so caught up in production and management that the spark of creativity grows dim. How can you rekindle inspiration, heed new opportunities, and leverage creative genius (both your own and that of others)? Here are some examples and noteworthy insights for using all things “creative” to benefit your biz and the world.
