A Common Fallacy About Creative Thinking

“Let’s clear up a common fallacy about the meaning of creative thinking. For some illogical reason, science, engineering, art, and writing got tabbed as about the only truly creative pursuits. Most people associate creative thinking with things like the discovery of electricity or polio vaccine, or the writing of a novel, or the development of a color television. 
Certainly, accomplishments like these are evidence of creative thinking. Each forward step made in the conquest of space is the result of creative thinking, lots of it. But creative thinking is not reserved for certain occupations nor is it restricted to super intelligent people.”
-Dr. David J. Schwartz, The Magic of Thinking Big (1959)
