Everyone cannot be Thomas Edison. Edison was able to innovate in different disciplines and fields in ways that few others have even been able to come close to. But to improve our innovation skills we don’t need to be Edison, we just need to be able to learn some of the traits and skills he mastered.

One of these skills is creativity. Many people say, “I can’t do that, I’m not creative” or “I can’t do that, I don’t have the talent.” Other people may have more talent, or more experience in being creative, but that misses the point. Every person has seeds of creativity inside of them. Every person can become more creative. Where you are is often not as important as where you are going and the steps you are taking to get there.

The following video is about how to have better creative thinking. If you watch, understand and apply what it talks about, you can be more creative tomorrow and then more the next day. Becoming a little better each day may be all you need to succeed in your innovation.
