Being Creative Means You Have More Ideas

This is so true. If you have a creative mind, you will find that you can generate more ideas, without even really trying.  And, the more idea you come up with, the better the quality of those ideas.  With so many ideas, there is also a high probability of you coming up with the right idea when it’s needed.  Do you remember this famous quote by Thomas Edison – “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration”?

He was dead right. Coming up with the idea takes about 1% of the total equation.  A real mark of genius is your ability to generate the idea, test it, and make sure it works and then implement and execute it in your own life to get the result you want.  Plan the way you are going to implement it in your life, through creative thinking, and then do it.  The more you use your creativity in this manner, the more you are going to achieve.

Improve Your Mental Models 

With the recent prominence of the cognitive behavioural sciences comes the rise of mental models as well. There are literally thousands of them now, but they are also not created equally. The mental models you currently hold are not the best for the goal in life that you want to achieve. 

Identifying the mental models that you need to have can be a daunting task, given the multitude of options you have on your hands. To help you through this process, here are four mental models derived from different fields of interest that you may be able to apply into life and improve the way you think, decide, and act.
