When we measure the creativity of young children, virtually all of them will record as being ‘highly creative’. However, only a small percentage of adults register as being ‘highly creative’.
Schools have crushed creativity. We were told to color within the lines. We were taught to follow instructions. The goal in
school is to get the “right” answer. Unfortunately, if you’re afraid to be wrong, you’ll never be creative or original.

very good job. However, in terms of creativity, they are falling terribly short.
This is one of the most unfortunate realities in our current education system.
To undo this, we must continuallyexercise our creative juices. That’s why I have put together 6 tips for expanding your creativity.
