The two-stage process of creativity

Human creativity is our ability to move to and fro between the realms of "what is" and "what could be."
Creativity is a two-stage process:

  • It's the ability to work through a challenge or an idea by imagining possible outcomes that are not immediately evident.
  • It's the capacity to make that imagined outcome into a reality.

Creativity is not only about genius or limited to the work of original thinkers. Creativity appears from the interconnections of ideas, experiences, and imagination.
