CREATIVE ANIMAL SAFARI
One-day seminar at a certified Creative Animals Zoo.
All animals that exist today have passed the Natural Selection test by evolving a number of survival adaptations.
The human animal possesses many adaptations. Supreme and somewhat unique among our adaptations is creativity. You are alive today because you are naturally creative.
All of us have the innate ability to create. You don't have to develop some unfamiliar, esoteric talent to be creative. In fact, you express your creativity every day. Every time you are confronted with a novel challenge, you respond creatively. When you were a child, most events of your day involved novel challenges. Therefore, you were creative more often.
Among your major childhood creative accomplishment were learning to walk and learning to talk. You acquired these amazing skills using a process similar to the process of evolution, similar to the scientific method. That is, a process of trial and error driven to a great degree by random stimulation. The same process used by creative geniuses in their adult lives.
You can learn to be more creative by responding to novel challenges the way you did as a child. With practice and exercise, you can develop and improve your creative ability. There are a number of tendencies, natural to you, which you can exploit—your Seven Creative Juices. There are a number of barriers within your environment, which you will have to escape—your Four Cages of Context.
