The 10 mental blocks to Creativity

Creative thinking and innovation seem to be the latest sexy management terms. Its what every business now wants to do - Innovate!
And they all like to call this - “thinking outside of the box,” which, according to Brian Clark over at Copyblogger, is the wrong way to look at it. Just like Neo needed to understand that “there is no spoon” in the film The Matrix, you need to realize “there is no box” to step outside of.
