Let us guess. You stopped drawing, singing, or playing the guitar because you were not good at it. This is your wake-up call; Creativity does not need excellence.
You don’t remember what creativity is? Let us help you! ’’Creativity is the knack for devising fresh and valuable ideas or solutions that go beyond the ordinary. It’s about thinking innovatively, combining elements in new ways, and sparking originality in various aspects of life. This skill drives innovation, adaptability, and personal development.’’
In a world brimming with technology and constant change, the ability to think creatively isn’t just a gift reserved for artists. It’s a vital skill that transcends boundaries, propelling innovation and success in various aspects of life. At Morphoses, we’re dedicated to nurturing this essential skill from a young age, understanding that creativity is the cornerstone of personal development and success. In this blog post, we’ll explore how creativity is intricately linked to a range of soft skills, its pervasive presence in everyday life, and how you, as parents, can identify and cultivate it in your children.
Creativity and Soft Skills — An Inseparable Duo
Creativity isn’t solely about painting masterpieces or composing symphonies; it’s about finding novel solutions, thinking outside the box, and adapting to change. These qualities are fundamental to many of the soft skills we value at Morphoses. For example, consider Problem-solving — a skill that relies heavily on creative thinking to devise innovative solutions. When children engage in open-ended activities that require them to think creatively, they naturally develop problem-solving skills that extend far beyond the realm of art.
Observing Creativity in Everyday Life
We are sure, a lot of times, you think to yourself ‘’I want to draw…’’, ‘’I want to play the guitar…’’ but all these thoughts are followed by the insidious ‘’but’’, ‘’…but I’m not good at it!’’. And here we are, telling you that yes, you are not good at it, and that’s okay. Being creative does not equal being good. So many people stop following their passions because they are not excelling at their hobby, with the result of thirsting their creativity. So, instead of discarding your children’s countless drawings, save them and celebrate their pure creativity.
