John Cleese on creativity

Creativity is not a talent. It is a way of operating. John Cleese has written and lectured on creativity and listed the 5 factors that you can arrange to be more creative:

  1. Space                                                                                                                                                       You need to escape your usual pressures.
  2. Time                                                                                                                                                         You need your space for a specific block of time.
  3. Time                                                                                                                                                         Giving your mind as long as possible to come up with something  original, be  patient with yourself.
  4. Confidence                                                                                                                                              Nothing will stop you being creative so effectively as the fear of  making a mistake.
  5. Humor                                                                                                                                                      Have fun. Humor gets us from closed mode to the open mind quicker than anything else.
