Necessity For The Skill Of Creativity
The skill of creativity is not taught in school. In fact, the complete opposite ‘hard skills’ are taught; of becoming proficient at regurgitating memorized information on tests. Yes the skill of memorizing information had immense value for thousands of years. But in our age where all information has become a free commodity, that is accessible from anywhere with Internet access, the skill of memorizing information is worthless. Now the only value information has is in how effectively it can be aggregated and transformed in new ways. That means the ‘hard skills’ will no longer be useful in-of-themselves without also having the skill of creativity.
