Instant Creativity: How to Be Creative Instantly! by The INSTANT-Series takes a fresh look at how to kick-start your creative skills so you can live a life more fulfilled and ready for any eventuality. You will learn how to focus your mind and become an expert in creating something innovative in every situation. The book is filled with ingenious but simple to follow techniques that will teach both sides of the brain to work to its maximum capacity. This book is a fantastic guide and will teach you to be creative in every situation, no matter what obstacles are thrown in your way. This is not just for the creative professions, but for everyone who wants to learn how to step out of the box and live a life full of vision and innovation for themselves and those around them.

Instant Creativity by The INSTANT-Series is another gem. Although a short read, it is jam-packed with useful tips and exercises that will boost your creativity and teach you how to give a dose of magic to everyday situations and make them exciting and original. Discover how to live your life with the glass full of vision, not empty. I enjoyed all the exercises found at the end of each chapter; they were easy to follow and were explained well. My particular favourite was the DEEP method, which I have used, and it really did work for me. I also learned new ways to engage the right and left-hand side of the brain, which I had never realised would be of benefit to me, but again it was a very helpful exercise. I highly recommend this book.

We rarely achieve full potential "in an instant"...but we are living in the 21st century, and sometimes all it takes in a shift in our thinking to change things on a dime. If you got a chance to check out the "Willpower" guide I believe you will enjoy this one as well.

In this guide you'll discover ways to get further outside the box whether it be for problem-solving, brainstorming, and ideas. A few may surprise you, like a good old-fashioned run around the block (I know I do this on my own.) The exercises included involve visualizations, the mental playing out of "what if?" scenarios, and ways to sync up right brain/left brain activity, and ways to see ordinary things of life in a brighter light.

I know that some of these ideas are those that I practice on my own; the world around me has always seemed mundane and in need of an imagination makeover. If you relate to this, you will find much of the information comes naturally to you. I for one, always seem to get my best ideas right out of the blue at strange, inopportune times-in other words, I try to avoid the trap of overthinking-but I can see how the strategies outlined would help me with ideas flowing more often.

As a final note you are encourage to go beyond the book's content and check out the company website for further helpful information.

Instant Creativity begins by pointing out the importance and power of creative thinking. With examples of famous artists and inventors, as well as real everyday situations, the author underlines the need for creative thinking in our daily lives.

The underlying message of this book is that creativity is not necessarily something you are either born with or not. It is something that you can develop! As such, this book provides the readers with exercises and tips to unlock their creative potential and further develop their creative thinking skills. With easy to follow instructions and acronyms to help remember the techniques, Instant Creativity shows the readers how to solve problems creatively, how to handle unforeseen situations, how to find inspiration, and how to understand the connection between the mind and the body in order to more efficiently develop creativity.

I have taken a university course dedicated to creativity, and several of the main ideas that were covered in 3 months can be found in a more practical form in this book, which I find is very useful. It is written in a colloquial language that makes it fun to read, and I really enjoyed the open-ended questions strategically placed to help the reader reflect on his or her own creativity and progress with the different exercises.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking into further developing their creative side. Everyone has the potential to be creative! If you disagree or are skeptical, just get this book, keep an open mind, and try some of the exercises. You just might get instant results!

The main idea behind this book is to define the consensus of creativity in everyday life. In today's day and age the computer has "electrified" our analytical know how and overall demeanor. In chapter II, we learn that the adrenal glands which help boost our creativity factors. Given this, the idea is to think outside the box rather than inside. The intrinsic value behind this is to always plan beforehand.

One rewarding part of the book for me was the Left vs. right portion in chapter V. The left side of the brain is for planning and mechanical, whereas the right side is for creativity and designing. We all have both sides obviously, but some struggle with it more so than others. You can always train yourself to become better at either side.

The DEEP method is a Socratic method to concentrating on life. For example, when children are raised to become infatuated with any Hess toy, this will provide them a sense of reward. This is pleasurable to the child and in turn the same can work for adults. As adults we are given the ability to make a tree the substitute of the toy. The living breathing tree can make time stand still and resonate throughout your mind and body.

Creativity is more than being an artist or writer or brilliant inventor (though it doesn't hurt for any of those professions). Creativity is a way of thinking to improve a way of life or to adapt to situations using problem solving techniques. We don't think of logical thinking as creative, but when you ask someone to use their knowledge to think outside of the box, then a creative analysis is what you want from them.

"Instant Creativity" gives readers tips and strategies to bring out their own creativity in a variety of situations while presenting it with a fresh voice that is entertaining to read. This is not a dry textbook. It is a how-to from preparing yourself for a creative or organized process to coming up with the next great idea that can benefit your neighbor, your community, or your world. I liked the exercises at the end of each chapter to work on my own instant creativity and apply something interesting that you just read.

Even though it is a quick read that is full of insight, it is set up so that one can read a chapter them put it away for a few days to a week to make new creative habits.

My favorite part of this entire book is the opinion of the author in Chapter 1 when he states that Da Vinci created so much more than the Mona Lisa, an overrated tiny painting. Finally, someone who has the guts to say what I’ve always thought. Creativity isn’t confined to the usual examples, like the Mona Lisa which everyone should view and think, ‘this is beauty.’ Creativity is unique and peculiar. It doesn’t follow a pattern or a set frame of mind. It is different for every individual and to confine it to definitions would be to limit and destroy it. Chapter 2 talks about recognizing when the iron is hot and learning how to strike it. To many times we simply push off an interesting thought that comes to mind and within 30 seconds it is gone.

This book outlines the methods we can use to take advantage of them; not simply write them down. My favorite exercise, and this book has many, is that of ‘trusting your gut.’ So many times I remember in school that my first reaction didn’t conform to that of my classmates and so my creativeness was discarded in the attempt to keep the group uniform in their learning. I hated this and always felt stifled. Reading this book refreshed that frustration but also reinforced the idea that I shouldn’t conform my ideas and actions for the sake of uniformity. Creativity is all about diversity and this book draws that out in an excellent reader-friendly way.
