Creativity is Your Secret Weapon

 Creativity makes the world go around! Every single job, project, and mission is exponentially more successful when you add creativity to the equation. I am here to argue that creativity is, in fact, the most important skill you can have. But what makes someone creative? No matter what line of work you’re in or what you’re trying to accomplish, creativity is your secret weapon.

Today we will be discussing the following:

  1. Creativity is Your Secret Weapon
  2. Why is Creativity Important?
  3. Creativity in the Workplace
  4. Reasons Why Creativity Matters – Creativity Solves Problems

Why is Creativity Important?

 My guess is that you already agree with some of what I’m saying. You might feel an emptiness in your life. Perhaps you’re bored, depressed, or feeling stuck. Are you losing your creativity? If you need reasons to feel motivated or inspired, read on. It’s true that creativity is your secret weapon.

Creativity in the Workplace

 In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to value things that bring immediate return. I’m talking about skill sets that instantly produce visible things. These include the higher-paying STEM skill sets:

  • science
  • technology
  • engineering
  • math skills

If you want to make a lot of money, the following career choices can bring in upwards of $80,000 per year.

  • pharmacists
  • computer technicians
  • industrial engineers
  • data analysts

The following skill sets are valuable because they produce tangible products:

  • medicine
  • computers
  • workplace blueprints
  • data reports
  • There’s no doubt that our world needs these things in order to function. 

You might feel pressure to become a “part of the machine” – someone whose job is to repetitively generate the same product. Or maybe you find yourself stuck in that place already. You find that your job requires no creativity, and you feel suffocated. But you might feel lost when it comes to actually starting to be creative again. After all, how can you do that as a pharmacist? Here are four reasons to value creativity in any career.

Reasons Why Creativity Matters – Creativity Solves Problems

Creativity is valuable because it is required to solve unique problems. You will encounter challenging situations in any job, ones that cannot be solved with formulas. As a software engineer, you might know how to patch a code, but you need creativity to resolve conflict with your coworker. There is no equation for a situation like that. Complex problem-solving requires an open mind. Creativity is what enables us to consider multiple perspectives – and with more perspective comes more opportunity.

Creativity Opens Your Mind

This “soft skill” is what makes entrepreneurs and CEOs so successful. Instead of following a checklist for a thriving business, an exceptional business leader will reimagine everything. Nothing has to stay the way it is simply because it’s always been that way. Googleplex, the headquarters of Google in California, is a great example of this. Every workspace unit on the Googleplex campus is an experiment. Some have aquariums, some have slides, others have napping pods. Instead of simply setting up office spaces the way everyone else did, they created something unprecedented. These workspaces foster increased productivity among Google employees. Creativity, then, can not only solve problems, but it can actually increase the efficiency and enjoyability of your work. Creativity is your secret weapon.

Creativity Increases Your Confidence

When your creativity increases, so does your confidence. Creativity requires risk, but every time you see a reward from that risk, you begin trusting yourself more and more. Confidence comes when we step outside of the safe zone. A pharmacist who chooses to stop simply filling prescriptions but begins including notes of encouragement in each bag as well, will see some people respond poorly and others respond with joy. This act of creativity might be supported or rejected by the pharmacist’s supervisor. Either way it will be noted as something different. The world always notices what is different. You’ll find that the right people will value that uniqueness and reward you for it.

Creativity Makes Us Feel Satisfied

In the same vein, perhaps the most important thing about creativity is that it fulfills us. We ourselves are created beings, so we recognize the beauty of creating something. When we do something as simple as renovating a bathroom, we feel a sense of pride in making something original. It is deeply satisfying because it’s part of our design. Each of us reflects our Creator God, who shared that creative part of his personality with us. It makes him happy when we act like him!

Benefits of Creativity

Instead of directly producing consistent results, creativity is a quality that requires investment and gradually yields valuable effects. In many ways, it’s like planting a garden instead of buying produce from the store. You must cultivate it. Not everything it produces will be profitable. But the rewards of creativity are much richer than those of a formulaic process. 

No matter what your role is in your workplace – whether you’re at the top or the bottom of the ladder – step out and try something new. You might be praised or you might be rejected for it. No matter what, don’t give up. Every time you create something, you change your environment. If you feel like you’re missing something in life, creativity will get things moving in the right direction!
