Creatively Thinking Several Steps Ahead

Wednesday, 14 November 2012   |   Creative Thinking

ChoiceWayne Gretzky once said: "A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be."  A great snooker player is always thinking several shots ahead.  Chess masters are often thinking 10 or more moves ahead.  People at the top of their game are always thinking several steps into the future but acting in the present.  Highly creative thinking falls into the same category. 

If you want to be highly creative then you have to make your actions in the present set things up and accommodate what is going to happen in the future. 

But this is hard to do.  You have to work at making it a habit.  Maybe you could try leaving yourself reminders so that you see them every day. 

So tell us your strategies for thinking ahead?  Or do you have a great example you can share?  Join in below.

 

You're on your way to becoming a Highly Creative Person.
