If you have ever been in a tight spot that seemed very hard to get by, let alone solve, then being creative about your approaches to the problem will prove to be a lifesaver.

Every problem has a solution, always keep this in mind. Surrendering to the idea that every problem comes with a solution is, oddly enough, the first step to gaining the answer you need. Easier said than done but with diligent practice, you should be able to solve just about anything. So how exactly can you gain a creative perspective on problems?

There are two things you need to get your creativity rolling: optimism and open-mindedness. Being able to accept, without having the need to prove, that a solution is indeed imminent is the first thing you need to learn about creative problem solving. Secondly, you need to be open to all ideas that come your way and be receptive to the possibility that there could be more than one solution to the problem. The solution you’re looking for might come in packages you least expect.

To further your cause, here’s an exercise to squeeze out those creative juices:
In a piece of paper, write down the first word that comes to your mind. Take a few seconds to look at the word and, again, write down the first two words that strike you. Repeat the exercise until you can build a large enough tree of related words to fill the entire paper. This exercise will provide you with the practice you need to encourage spontaneous thinking and will result to a creativity that is enhanced and, well, spontaneous.
