When do your creative ‘Aha’ moments come to you? Those flashes of wonderful insight that help you to see through a problem or be particularly creative. Ingrid Wickelgren describes the five steps of a creative process; Exploration, Focus, Incubation, Insight and Follow-Through. It is the incubation stage that is focused on in this article where problems can be solved often while not doing much of anything at all, even while sleeping or doing mundane household chores for example. Ingrid uses some great examples from people who have written in describing their ‘Aha’ moments. I wonder what yours are?
