Creativity 360

Pleasure- and Pressure-driven


Vadim Kotelnikov

Every person is a Creative Creature.

If your creativity is a Sleeping Beauty,
kiss her! 







The Two Creativity Catalysts

Dreamers create best for fun, problem solvers create best under the gun. Market leaders create best for fun under the gun.

You create “under the gun” when you need to solve a pressing problem urgently and creatively.

Creating for fun takes place when you are working on making your dream a reality or “play with the objects you love”.  >>>

Fun-driven Creativity

You can improve greatly the quality of your life by injecting creativity into everything you do. Everyone loves the feeling – the joy, the mental lift, the energy, the attitude, the productivity, the satisfaction – that comes with being inspired.

To enjoy lasting inspiration and have a continual stimulus for ideas to achieve your stretch goals, you must have a dream, to create an inspiring vision of the future, to find what you love to do, and to choose the right, clearly defined and intensely desired goals. Having done so, start moving towards making your dream a reality. Experiment, take risk. If you really want something you’ll invent amazing ways to achieve it.

Creative Problem Solving “Under the Gun”

Many people work best under pressure. The need to solve a problem urgently or the pressure of a deadline concentrates the mind wonderfully.

To become a creative problem solver,

  • Change your attitude. See yourself as a creative problem-solver and look upon every problem as a challenge and an opportunity to develop your creative powers.

  • Make creative problem solving a habit. Look for challenging problems to solve. The more you seek for innovative solutions and ideas, the smarter and more creative you become.  >>>


Albert Einstein

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.


Case in Point: An Inventive Clerk

Here is the story illustrating the value of non-standard thinking. An inventive clerk had to calculate the area of some complex shapes. Since he was not a master in Math, he faced two problems. Firstly, he couldn't "fetch" the data into polynomials and secondly, he hadn't mastered the art of Integral Calculus. But he was inventive. What he did was draw the data on calibrated 100 gram paper and then cut out the graph and... weighted it.
