WHAT IF... ?

... I stopped consuming sugar, carbs & alcohol for a whole year? The bet with my siblings was on and I was terrified. Knowing me and ..READ MORE.

 

Fast forward... In the past years, I’ve lived on four continents, five in total, met thousands of people from all corners of the world (this was before Covid-19), connected even more people with each other and dug deep into all sorts of psychological and neuroscientific research about the science behind creativity and the way our brain works and plays. Now, equipped with a much deeper understanding of us humans, I would say that I understood one little but quite a fundamental element that differentiates people who drown, from those who thrive and grow: They look at the same but see connections others won't.   

 

It’s this little differentiator in our brain which can determine if we thrive or drown in this world of exponential change and uncertainty. But the good news is we can train our brain and our creativity muscles to see a) more connections and b) connections others won't. Our mindset plays a huge role in all those little moments when we either see a problem or an opportunity, embrace growth or hide in our comfort zone, play and dance to the unique beat of change and uncertainty or stay outside the disco. It’s up to us to understand the importance of it and start programming it to our advantage.

 

The “Creativity Gym” helps you understand the science behind creativity and the brain in order for you to thrive in a world of change and uncertainty. Once we translate the latest scientific research around creativity into easy-to-apply tools and creativity practices, we can train creativity like our muscles at the gym. The more our creativity muscles grow over time, the easier it becomes for us to solve problems faster and more original, create more ideas, turn obstacles into opportunities and become more curious, open-minded, and resilient humans. 

CREATIVITY GYM

 THE THREE PILLARS + THE MAGIC BOX

1. SHORT-TERM CREATIVITY

A) We use brain hacking mechanisms to get our mind into the ideal state of creativity. This can be done through disrupting routine hacks, abrupt mood changes, very conscious daydreaming, meditation  techniques, and so on.  

 

B) We use the "What If..." methodology to challenge our fixed and limiting beliefs in order to expand our mind. At the same time, we tap into our most powerful and limitless resource: Our imagination. 

 + THE MAGIC BOX 

2. LONG-TERM CREATIVITY

We look at creativity from a neuroscientific point of view in more depth in order to understand how we can practise and design our creative muscles for long-term needs. For example for creating more and new ideas, solving problems faster and better and becoming a more pro-active and curious person. The more we practice our creative muscles, the bigger our imaginative world will become. And the more we can use it as our most powerful resource in a world of change and uncertainty.

3. WORLD-CLASS CREATIVITY

How do world-class creatives like Leonardo Da Vinci, Albert Einstein or J.K. Rowling (used to) work and think creatively? How can we use habit formation, neuro curiosity, network thinking and play to improve our own lives, processes at work and home 10x and find the right balance between creativity and productivity? Once we explore and understand how our brain works and model the creative habits and techniques from the creative elite, we can adapt 10x faster in a world of change and uncertainty, turn fear into play, problems into opportunities & be on the path to world-class creativity. Lifelong learning will become an enjoyable side effect. 

Your input shapes your creative output. If you consume the same like everyone else, then your creative output might not be as original as it can be. We gonna discuss this & it's implications in more depth during the creativity gym.
