The pursuit of perfectionism does have an upside. It boosts up the creativity levels. This happens because those who seek perfection, do not always abide by the consensus. In fact, they may counter even though all available business intelligence points the other way. This ends up with a lot of challenge to the existing status quo. Such perfectionists, end up acquiring a lot of information themselves, as they desire to understand all there is to. They tend to possess a growth mindset. Settling- in, does not quite seem to be an option for them. Their stubbornness ensures that unless innovative solutions are derived, they will not budge. Perfectionists are ultra- competitive. This makes them scrappy, and always trying hard to keep pace with peers. A shorter timeline propels them to develop or work on business innovations.

Creativity is essential for businesses, so when some new idea hits, it generates enormous fanfare, especially more so if the execution is successful. The best of creative minds though, need to understand when to turn themselves on and off. For this the first step is to understand the problem right, but then step back a little. This stepping back allows the unconscious mind to kick in, to make complete use of the experiences, creative connections and the mental resources. One needs to stay loyal to one’s curiosities, and explore event accordingly. Curiosity thus must never be killed. A method must be devised to keep a mental note or even a physical register for all ideas generated thus far. Sometimes, certain aspects must be undertaken which are not naturally attractive to the person concerned. This will stimulate new ideas, as a lot of these will be from areas outside one’s comfort. Similarly, some uncomfortable but brutally ruthful conversations needs to be brought in to the system. Once the idea hits, one needs to stop the thinking and get on with the execution, as not creativity will lead to any business innovation, unless the execution is swift and correct.

Creative thinking is not something that will arise out of some eureka moment, to only a select few. It can occur to all, provided they follow a certain personal strategy. Creative thinking is in fact the final culmination from negative and positive thinking. Management training is now increasingly focusing on mindfulness. Meditation is also a key part in this kind of training. Smart phones have in fact been identified as the single biggest enemy in fulfilling the condition of presence of mind. Ancient Hindu scriptures had the right solutions to these conflicts. Samatha is one such mediation method that focuses on control. The Mantra style is similar, except that it also focuses on chants. Vipassana is where there is acceptance of reality, and insights are formed in the mind.

Stress has now become a common occurrence among people, working in the corporate world. This however, should never prevent the creative impulses to emerge out, as then alone can business innovations see the light of day. For this, first of all, a net of psychological safety needs to be spun. Once this is ensured, the “diffuse- thinking” state can be triggered. This is the situation where the brain is less stymied by the controls exerted by the real, outside world. One needs to dedicate enough time dedicated to oneself, to allow for individual thinking.Another tactic to use is to alternate between spending time in groups and by oneself. It will help one brainstorm as well as to absorb the ideas.
