1. Try new things
2. Push boundaries
3. Don't be afraid of failure
Trying new things increases the connections between neurons in your brain and provides perspective.
Pushing boundaries will take you out of your comfort zone and into the creative space. Uncomfortable situations are just situations you are not used to and can be learned from.
We tend to run from failure but it is trial and error that provides us with the best learning experiences. Failure will actually come to our aid in the creative process.
We live in an age of unparalleled human creativity. There's no telling what the world will look like twenty years from now. We don't even have names for the types of jobs that will exist by then. So as we enter the rapidly changing future with limitless creative potential, how will you contribute?
