Creativity empowers you to view the world with your imagination. By exploring current or historical thoughts or methods, you can develop tools or perspectives to see opportunities to apply new thoughts. You may also embark upon something truly innovative in concept or production.  The value of your creative work also depends upon your articulation of its effectiveness and impact in observing the world, identifying problems, or developing solutions.
