Overcoming Our Rigidity, Opening Our Minds

Ben Weinlick has a terrific article over at The Creativity Post blog.  The post is titled, "Defeating Rigid Habits to Spark Creativity."  He has some good suggestions including:
  • Defeat habits by being curious about interesting ideas and interesting people
  • Defeat habits by engaging lots of interests and hobbies
  • Defeat habits by consciously shaking up routines
  • Defeat habits by asking the “dumb questions”
  • Defeat habits by hanging out with weird
  • Defeat habits by focusing on a problem and then letting go; do something totally different
  • Defeat habits by including people in your projects who are from outside your domain
  • Defeat habits by developing a culture of serious play.
