A wonderful day brings human a significant chance to make effort to find the best solution for old problems in more effective ways to accomplish their goals, it is World Creativity and Innovation Day.

It is crazy to do the same thing in the same method and tautologize to get some different results in expectation. We've all heard this saying and often applied its wisdom to reasons to change negative habits in our lives. However, this saying can also be applied to the process of scientific creativity and innovation.

No more drums humming day after day. Moreover, it is time to open that creative space, no matter how sad your mind is and try to be a part of making the world a better place!

History of World Creativity and Innovation Day

In 1452, there was a man birthday. He was the founder of the standard of a Renaissance man, excelling in both the arts and sciences. In Invention, Mathematics, Music, Geology, Astronomy, and Cartography, he also involved, just a few. Leonardo da Vinci has made remarkable strides in whatever he spends his mind or hand on. In fact, Leonardo da Vinci is the perfect example of a cosmic genius and his rational approach to the world is truly advanced and unusual for his time. And while he is acknowledged to be unique, that doesn't mean others can't take his word for it and try to think in creative ways.

World Creativity and Innovation Day gives people a day off to study much more and find that their selves maybe a da Vinci.

Creativity and innovation bring us a lot of benefit in every step in our daily life as well as our career. Both people working in the customer service industry finding how to improve the customer service and scientists whose work days are filled with learning new things about the world and finding new ways to apply it. From politicians who can use their creativity to find new ways to solve problems and support the public to healthcare workers who can find new ways of doing things to prevent their patients as well as society from risks.

With the strong support of the United Nations, World Creativity and Innovation Day plays a key factor to encourage all people to make effort and change in a better world with different solutions and more cooperation?

Which activities you do in World Creativity and Innovation Day?

  • Generate problem solving ideas

Start your day off by brainstorming, sitting down and thinking about all the things you do for the day and how you can change them for the better. Therefore, do not be annoyed by them, let see them as your motivation through the difficulties around us.

During this holiday, let prepare a notebook in order to note any ideas that come up, whether they are used for personal aims or any ways that make other things become better.

  • Look at the world in a different way

In some cases, creativity and inspiration comes from doing a random task in a different way. Sit somewhere else at the regular restaurant or better yet have a picnic lunch and sit outside. It is extremely surprised to climb a tree and see the world from above for a few minutes!

Simply doing one small thing, such as taking a different path to work, can change the way a person thinks or reacts to problems. Try cycling instead of driving to work. Use public transport. Or go for a walk, weather permitting. Only small changes can make people’s mind change a lot.

Wait? Maybe you should keep in mind that public transportation is not an option. Why not? Because it is impossible to access in this community, right? Of course, that maybe the first problem that you need pay attention, recognition, advocacy and find the best resolution.

  • Share creative ideas

Do you have an idea for your local area? Do not hesitate to send your local authorities some ideas and show them how it can benefit in the community.

Got a new idea for an employer or workplace? Inform your supervisor or boss and see what they have to say about implementing these innovative solutions.

Do you have any new plan for yourself? Do not hesitate to try it in motion and then see how it develop.

  • Visit a new culture

In addition, the innovation and creativity also comes from seeing anything around the world, which can be done in a better way in our little corner. Learning about how different groups and cultures work globally can help not only foster respect for others, but also generate incredible ideas.
