How Entrepreneurs Can Master the Creative Mind

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

To become a great entrepreneur, one needs to be creative and innovative. The Creativity Post has a list of 8 tips to cultivate and maintain creativity, including:

1. Forever curious. Endless curiosity is the number one indication of the creative mind-set. It allows entrepreneurs to challenge what is already “known” to extrapolate that to an original idea. Curiosity infuses you with the determination needed to figure out or learn how to turn an original or innovative idea into a reality.

2. Always open to new things. Thinking this way can be viewed as quieting the opinions of the judgmental mind long enough to allow the creative mind the time and space it needs to generate interesting insights, associations, and connections. This opens creative possibilities, rather than categorizing new things into self-limited dead-ends.”
