My mom told me: "You ARE creative."
After she said this 100 times, I still didn't believe her.
I thought: "I'm not that kind of person."
UNTIL I bumped into this idea of the writer James Altucher.
James' idea: you can train your “idea muscle”.
By writing down 10 ideas every day.
Ideas for a new business, ideas for making meetings more efficient, or ideas for fun activities with your kids.
❌ The topic doesn't matter.
❌ The quality doesn't matter.
✅ The only thing that matters is consistency, because that's how you train your idea muscle.
I tried this for a few months and the results were remarkable.
Some people have little talent to drive a car.
However, with enough training, everyone can learn how to drive.
This applies to all areas.
Not everyone starts with the same ability.
But that doesn't mean you can't train creativity.
I kept telling my mom that I'm not creative.
But after 31 years I have to say:
I changed my mind.
