Help! My creativity is stuck in neutral . . .

I’ve thought that too often, and this morning happened to run across a COPYBLOGGER post that helps unstick – Do You Recognize These 10 Mental Blocks to Creative Thinking?
The first one is something I am always nagging my students about when we talk about design:
“One of the worst aspects of formal education is the focus on the correct answer to a particular question or problem. While this approach helps us function in society, it hurts creative thinking because real-life issues are ambiguous. There’s often more than one “correct” answer, and the second one you come up with might be better than the first.”
I think I’m going to make the whole article required reading – for me, especially.
