OH, SH*T! BY REGAN GRABILL
After studying creativity, learning what it is, and working to live a more “creative” life, I was interested to see how my friends, family, & members of the Miami community define creativity.
To collect data. I developed a survey that I then sent to all my Facebook friends and in the Miami class of 2019 Facebook page. Out of the 45 people who responded, 12 people thought creativity had something to do with, “thinking outside the box”. Although I may agree with them to some extent, the lack of elaboration within each response gave me the impression that that was just the “first right answer” because without any further explanation, it leaves me guessing as to what each person’s “box” is.
My survey inspired me to help people realize that there is so much more to creativity than just thinking outside ofbox. Here’s a few ways how you can take creativity to a whole new level:
– Change your routines–
w a l k a d I f f e r e n t PATH,
laugh more, ask more ,
FAIL more & LEARN from it,
& do not settle for the 1st right answer!
Everyone can do these few simple things & together we can create a better & more creative community.
Although there were plenty of basic answers, there were also a few responses that stood out. My favorite response to the question, “How do you define creativity in your own words?” was:
“Creativity is that thing you get when you finish up on the toilet and realize there’s no tp”
The mind is a beautiful thing.
