One of the ways we help people to become more innovative is to help them become more creative. Creativity is not just a talent, it is also a skill that can be taught, worked on and improved. Just like a muscle, creativity grows by exercising creativity. Some of the ways that we have encouraged innovators to work their creative muscles is to do things like write creatively, draw and participate in art, and listen to music.

The following TED video not only validates what we have talked about, but also introduces a new way to exercise your creativity, playing an instrument. It also explains that the muscle we are exercising is our brain and we can help make it stronger and more effective. So, watch the video and exercise your brain and your creativity. It may be the workout you need to help you strengthen your innovation.
