The Monthly “100 Creativity Ingredients” Book Tuning: Creative Synthesis Jan. 2020

Creativity has many forms and manifestations; it is a long-term endeavor. 

All humans are born with raw creativity ability. Creativity has many dimensions, with multi-faceted truth and myth, manifold knowledge and multidimensional insight. Creativity is the wings of our mind and the tempo of our heartbeat. Creativity is a constructive disruption, not so bad addiction, and a sensational phenomenon.

The purpose of “100 Creativity Ingredients - Everyone’s Playbook to Unlock Creativity “is to classify, scrutinize, articulate, and share insight about one hundred special creativity ingredients, to paint the picture with them, to add colors on them, to embed the music into them, and to make the story via them, in order to unleash our collective creativity potential.   

                           Creative Synthesis  

Creative Synthesis Creativity can be defined as the collision between different perspectives, internal programming, mind-states of possibility and necessity and thought patterns that result in novel ideas and innovative solutions.

Creativity, Biology, and Ecology Creativity is all about connecting the dots. It’s an inner process to create novel ideas. What are the evolutionary roots of creativity? Creativity may start with the biological basis of creativity (nature); then the development or suppression of those characteristics during maturation (nurture); and then, the biological and social support of those traits (nutrition). Creativity is simply about connecting the dots. In the hyperconnected digital ecosystem, there are wider dots to connect for sparking creativity within the broader scope.

Change, Creativity and Problem-Solving Change is not for its own sake, the very purpose of the change is often for problem-solving, progression, or innovation. From Change Management perspective, taking people through new experiences, exposing them to additional "information" through those experiences, developing their creativity, and doing that very purposefully will create the opportunity to shift attitudes, beliefs, mindsets that ultimately will cultivate their problem-solving capabilities.

Harness Creativity Multidimensionally Creativity has many forms and manifestations; it is a long-term endeavor. Everyone possesses a certain level of creativity. Creativity relates to intelligence, empathy, idealism, and process understanding. There are many unique ingredients to make a “creativity formula” with a combination of intrinsic and extrinsic elements to ignite creativity. It’s important to leverage specific systems, thought processes, and continuous practices to harness creativity multi-dimensionally.

Multifaceted Creativity
Creativity is the most needed skill in the 21st century because digital is the era of innovation. Creativity is both innate and a skill. Developing creativity requires both internal motivation and self-awareness. Being original and being yourself is the first step, breaking down the convention thinking box, and practicing out-of-the-box thinking is one of the mental activities to stimulate creativity as well. Here is a further understanding of the multifaceted creativity.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 3 million page views with about #6300th blog posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The “Digital Master” book series includes 28 books to share insight from the multidimensional digital lens and perceive the multi-faceted impact the digital era upon us is making to the businesses and society. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking and innovating the new ideas; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify diverse voices and deepen digital footprints, and it's the way to harness your innovative spirit.
