Creativity as a virtue: The way to an Unremarkable Tomorrow
The ways we create and obtain value are shifting. It is a time of ideas and an age of innovations. A generation of creators is appearing and breaking free from the corporate mindset that has plagued old business models with success. Creativity has become a virtue – the way to an unremarkable tomorrow.
The very foundation of creativity is being able to do more with less. We are at a point in our society where we need to work smarter instead of harder. Our new world favours people who can do incredible feats with limited resources.
A creation or innovation is the outcome of creative thinking. Imagination is a fundamental human quality that helps individuals solve problems and create innovative ideas and ways of doing things. Imaginative people have a willingness to question the status quo and an ability to imagine alternative possibilities.
Creativity is not an individual quality but a relabelling of the ability to stand out.
When we talk about creativity, we often consider it a skill only applied in the arts and sciences. But creativity can also be applied to any field where solutions are needed. Creativity can help solve business, politics, education, or health care issues.
Creativity is not about being different but better; finding an innovative solution to a problem instead of sticking with what’s been done before or doing things rote because someone else says so.
The future is today’s uncertainty.
The future will not happen to us but something we create. We can’t predict what the future looks like. The only sure thing is uncertainty. And this isn’t just an excuse for fecklessness—it’s good news: It means that every day and every decision matters more than ever.
The earlier generation has left us one legacy: They tell us how things used to be and why our life will never be as good as theirs used to be or better than theirs now are. But if you want an unremarkable tomorrow, stick with yesterday’s ideas and predictions about tomorrow’s possibilities!
Businesses will only survive in the coming years if they embrace uncertainty.
Uncertainty is becoming the new certainty. In an age where we have more data than ever, businesses will only survive if they embrace uncertainty.
- Companies that do not embrace uncertainty will fail. To give you an example of a company that thrives in the face of uncertainty: Netflix. When Netflix launched its streaming service in 2007, it took a gamble on “blockbusters” and used data to decide which movies to buy and produce (1). The company also used data to figure out which movies people wanted to watch right away and which ones they could wait on watching
- Netflix made a lot of money by taking risks while they were still unknowns—and it wasn’t just luck!
The point here is not whether you agree with their decisions: because Netflix was able to predict what people would want based on their earlier viewing habits, those predictions turned out accurate enough for them to continue investing in similar projects today.
We are at the start of a new era.
We are at the start of a new era. The world is changing, and it’s happening faster than ever before. If you’re reading this, you know it’s now more important than ever to be creative and entrepreneurial to stand out from the crowd.
So why do we need creativity? Why should you care about creativity? Because without it, there will be no remarkable tomorrow!
The most visionary companies pursue creativity as more than just a means to an end.
Creativity is not a goal but a means to an end. The most creative companies are not aiming for creativity as an end in itself; instead, they use it as a tool to solve problems and achieve goals. Creativity is about learning from others and making connections—it’s not just about dreaming up new ideas out of thin air.
As the author, Jonathan Fields says: “Creativity isn’t something you need more of; it’s something you need less of.”
Challenges always require creativity for practical solutions.
Creativity is the key to finding solutions. Creativity helps you find the right solution for a problem, and it also helps you solve problems that are difficult to solve.
Creativity is an essential skill for solving problems. The challenges we face today require creativity for effective solutions; without them, we will not be able to address these issues effectively and efficiently.
Creativity is how you stand out and thrive on an unremarkable tomorrow.
Creativity is a virtue. It’s not just about being different or unusual—it’s about being able to do something that nobody else can do but that everyone else needs.
Creativity is a way to stand out. When you have something unique, it enables you to rise above the noise and get noticed by people who would otherwise ignore everything else in their field of vision.
Creativity is a way to thrive on an unremarkable tomorrow. Our world is changing very quickly; soon enough, we will all live in an unremarkable tomorrow (unless your name is Elon Musk). Creativity allows you to adapt more quickly as innovative technologies and business models arise; without it, there’s nowhere left for companies like Kodak or Blockbuster Video when Netflix comes into town with its fancy DVDs and streaming service.
Think outside the office.
Creativity is the ability to stand out. It’s not about being different for difference’s sake; it’s about finding a way to be different that makes sense for your business and helps you grow.
Perhaps creativity would be better defined as “the ability to find a space where you can flourish” rather than saying “you’re creative.” By that definition, anyone who works hard at their job and strives for success could be considered creative if they can find ways to excel in their career or industry. This idea of creativity means that in the future, there will likely be more jobs available—but those jobs won’t all require special skills; instead, people will need the ability (and desire) to think outside of traditional frameworks when given new problems or challenges they face at work, school, or other areas of life.
Creativity is often associated with novelty or innovation. Still, innovation should not necessarily mean something completely new. Instead, it could simply mean rethinking how something has traditionally been done before (or even doing something old differently). In other words: innovating isn’t always about coming up with brand new ideas but instead thinking creatively about how we can progress with what already exists today so that tomorrow looks brighter than today does now.”
Creativity is a virtue. But what does it mean to be creative?
In the age of digital technology, we no longer need to struggle with how to make the world a better place. Technology can do it for us. We just need to give it some basic instructions and let it go about its business.
And yet something unique about creativity stands out among all other virtues: The possibility of creating something new. No matter how hard you try, you will never be able to create something that has already been created unless you have access to time machine or magic wand (which we don’t).
