THE ROLE OF CURIOSITY & CREATIVITY IN INNOVATION

/

If there’s an algorithm for Innovation, it must begin with two key components, Curiosity & Creativity.

These two words lie at the very foundation of every true innovative process. If great minds like Newton, Einstein, Beethoven, Shakespeare, Leonardo da Vinci have anything in common, it would be these two qualities: Curiosity and Creativity. But let’s back it up and try to define these three words: Creativity, Curiosity, and Innovation algorithm.

Creativity is the innate ability to use one’s imagination to bring an original idea to life. It can also be the use of original ideas to invent something; it can indicate a flash of insight otherwise known as the “Eureka” or “Light Bulb” moment. A good example of Creativity is Sir Issac Newton’s flash of genius as an apple fell while he under the apple tree. This event sparked a moment of creative brilliance that inspired Newton to develop the theories of Gravitation. Creativity would ensure that one can connect with the original ideas and convert them into material that can energize innovation.

On the other hand, how can Curiosity be defined?

Curiosity is a passionate desire to discover and to know. Curiosity is a subtle quality of great that mostly goes unnoticed. It doesn’t seem to garner as much acclaim as it deserves which is also makes it difficult for those who embrace Creativity without it to produce anything meaningful that truly impacts and changes the world.

“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.”

Did Mark Twain actually say that? Maybe. Either way this sentiment resonates with new strength now. Especially with schools closed all over the world to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

For many, the isolation (self-imposed or otherwise) represents an opportunity. To rediscover the value of education: not the kind directed by an institution, but the kind that runs on one’s own steam.

Quit Trying to ‘Find Your Passion’

Find your passion, they say. As if it were easy. As if, just by looking around the place, you might stumble into what you love – a glimmering spark hidden, just out of sight, until that very moment.

Consequently, it doesn’t work that way, psychologists say in a new paper examining the basis of people’s interests. And while people might mean well when they tell you to ‘find your passion’, the advice isn’t just a cliché, the researchers explain. It’s bad advice.
