Tips to Being More Creative at Work

Many of us can feel like creativity is something we either have or don’t have. It’s an elusive talent that, if we’re not blessed with it, we can’t have it. In some cases, of course, some people will be naturally better at being creative than others. But whether you feel that you are creative or not also depends on how you define it.

“Creativity is just connecting things,” Apple co-founder Steve Jobs once said in an interview. “When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.”

This means that even less creative types can apply that principle to their work every day. What if we were able to create the conditions for greater creativity, not just in our workplace, but in our professional lives and our daily routines? While it’s true that some people naturally have more creative tendencies than others, there are things that we can all do to be more creative at work.
