Creativity versus Logic
Definition :Concept or idea that is widely accepted is called Logic whereas concept or idea which is useful yet new to people is creativity .
By default everyone is born as logical .Common mindset is logical whereas Leadership mindset is creative .
Many people think that creativity is parallel to logic and has no connection with logic but the truth is that creativity is not parallel to logic instead it’s add on to logic.
Creativity is not bounded to only arts field . Every new invention or creation whether it is system, technology, art ,etc is termed as Creativity.
Creativity is nothing but the new concept or idea which is useful to people. Whereas logic is that idea or concept which is accepted widely.
When Innovation or creation becomes widely accepted, it becomes logic.
For example , nowadays Google is synonymous to search and is logic but in the beginning it was someone’s creativity .
Similarly in the field of science and technology before widely accepted, Flying in the sky was a Creativity made possible by Wright brothers.
So logic and creativity are connected end to end. Before becoming logic, every logic is creativity .
It should be noted that creativity in any filed is done by people from that field itself as those people have crossed the logic part and have gone over and above logic part to enter in the arena of creativity.
It is not that someone from other field coming up with new creation or invention in different field . It is always seen that creativity in any field is done by people from that field itself.
Creativity would have no connection with logic if Rabindra Nath Tagore and the great Pablo Picasso who are renowned for their creativity in arts would have come up with the Einstein formula E=mC2.
Or in other way if Einstein would have come up with beautiful painting and poem like Pablo Picasso and Rabindra Nath Tagore respectively.
Difference between Creativity and Imagination
All newness or creativity has happened through people from their respective fields who have understood the logic part first before coming up something creative. One cannot become creative without crossing the logic part. Without logic as base, concept or idea is just an imagination which can be anything but not the creativity. Many gets confused and consider imagination as creativity . Imagination can be anything without any base but creativity is new concept or idea having base as logic and useful to people .
Thus creativity is any concept or idea which is new and useful to people with base as logic .The basis of creativity has to be logic otherwise it will not be understood or accepted and of no use .
Though when Einstein invented the energy formula , it was great invention or creativity but he needed the logic to prove the existence of the formula and its usefulness.
So every new concept and idea has to have strong connection with logic ( the widely accepted concept or idea) to be called as Creativity .
One can be in any profession and yet creative . And those who are creative are the leaders in their respective profession or field.
Creativity is the trait of Leadership mindset
Leaders do not do different things, they only do things differently by going over and above the logic part in their respective fields.
A teacher can be creative, a lawyer can be creative, a scientist can be creative , a salesman or businessman can be creative , a doctor can be creative, an artist can be creative ,etc. So creativity is not bounded to specific field . Those who are creative are the leaders in respective fields.
It is the biggest myth that only arts field like painting, singing, dancing, etc is creativity and science field is logic. The truth is that any new invention or creation whether it is system, arts or technology ,etc is creativity.
Creativity is the signature of the leadership mindset and is all about making a difference to people’s life with skills one possess. The value adding or problem solving mindset paves the way to creativity in their respective field. And creativity paves the way to success and Growth.
Creativity is the result of the next level mindset
Creativity is over and above the skills set. When the leadership mindset gets clubbed with any skills set , it produces creativity. And attaining leadership mindset is not an easy task , it needs great perseverance, persistence and patience to attain the leadership mindset . The mindset where one can accepts problems or challenges with open mind and overcome them with the positive Attitude.
It is only that reason, creativity is not commonly found to everyone , because it is the trait of the leadership mindset or the leaders. And leadership mindset is the higher consciousness for which one has to earn it through great perseverance and will power to succeed in all conditions. Thus Creativity is signature of the next level mindset .
