IN the shower with Picasso
How to become more creative
Picasso took showers to get new ideas. Jørgen Leth takes a walk...... Can the rest of us learn from this and in that case, how? Lene Tanggaard and I have written a book about creativity and how we can all learn to work with our creativity both in a personal as well as cooperative business.
We both believe that everyone has the ability to become even more creative and that it is important to become so. Creativity and inventiveness are essential abilities which we should all seek more.
It’s a lot about getting the information about how creativity works, that’s a good way of getting started. You know, you cannot force creativity, however, you can enable it. We think more creatively when we think slowly.
