Week 6: Creativity and Motivation Help

Week 6: April 2 April 8


Creativity and motivation: Motivation is an essential element in creativity as we know creativity is
affected by many influences including exercise, diet, and environment; if we are motivated, we can be
more creative. The type of motivation is also important; external motivation is not very effective either
in the short term or long run; paying people to be more creative is not as effective as many believe.
However, internal motivation, our own self-drive to be creative or explore is much more effective and
can be supported. We also need to develop habits and a lifestyle that encourages creativity. the
importance of internal and external motivation; the value of failure.
