Paradox is a statement that is seemingly contradictory or opposed to common sense and yet is perhaps true. Paradoxical thinking is holding two opposing ideas at the same time. Nowadays, thinking out of box is already out-of-date. The new one is we need to thinking a new dimension from A to Blue.
There are Myths about creativity that existed in the world such as; Creative people are born not made. I really not agreed with this myth because people can be creative from the change in their thinking and environment. Second is Creativity involves play and laughter. I agree with his one because creativity for me means having fun and just “shout out” what is in the mind. The last is Creativity and discipline does not mix. The principles of creativity are: Interpret words differently. Work with others, especially those who differ from you. Create analogies and metaphors. Make yourself a little uncomfortable. Practice is option-widening and reframing. Play and laugh. Spend a little time each day. Think “I’m a creative person!”
Creative thinking I think is requires some aspect from us. First is time. Creativity couldn’t limit by time, it could not working under pressure condition. Also creativity needs a lot of energy we had, because as a creative people, we cannot only sit back and quiet. It means not expressing ourselves out. Practice makes perfect. It related to creativity too. Creative people not just being born it, but do a lot practice in daily. Last is commitment. This thing is very sure. It just not in creativity required, but in life it’s very important to do something “masterpiece”.
