What Makes Something Creative? The Characteristics of Highly Innovative Ideas
December 8, 2020

If you’re wondering why you just can’t be creative or you’re almost losing that sense of hope of being able to generate a creative idea one day, well, don’t lose hope – just yet.

You see, HOPE is a prerequisite of creativity. 

Without hope, taking such a task as innovating becomes difficult, if not, impossible. After all, why bother if there is no hope for a successful future? 

Hope is a powerful element in innovation at work because creativity requires challenging the status quo and the willingness to try and possibly fail. 

Join me today as I discuss the value of hope as it relates to creative output.
