3. Creativity

Chapter 3. Creativity

Every human achievement is the result of an initial act of creativity. Stonehenge could not have been created without it, nor could the book you are holding. Even some kinds of logic, such as inductive reasoning, require leaps of creativity.

Creativity might appear to be a mystical force, but in fact, it’s available to everyone, even people who claim they’re not creative. As counterintuitive as it might seem, creativity can be hacked. Some of the hacks in this chapter go so far as to try to mechanize creativity. Whether they all succeed is something you’ll have to judge yourself, but I hope you’ll learn to boost your creativity regardless.
