We live in a world that is bound by borders and restrictions that we abide by and there is no doubt that these limitations unconsciously stunted our ability to be creative beyond what we can ever imagine. All human beings one way or another have the ability to be creative and to think outside the box and push past our limitations of what we can achieve. With that being said, you don’t have to be Vincent Van Gogh to capture the art of being creative or Thomas Edison to have the creative power to invent a light bulb. To put it quite simply, being creative is all about ‘How you can apply your mind, skills and tools to solve the problems at hand’. Have a look at the 8 Jobs below that require some degree of creativeness.
