The science behind great creativity

From Kanye West to Charles Dickens, creative people understand that getting deep into creative challenges is the key to solving them. But it’s also the key to deeply enjoying work. Research shows that reaching a state of ‘flow’, where you lose track of time and find your creative sweet spot, not only yields your best output, it’s also the secret to human happiness. You don’t need to be a neuroscientist to see that’s a win-win…
Get more ‘aha!’ moments
Those moments where your big idea strikes? Neuroscience shows that these don’t come from nowhere – they’re the culmination of a series of brain states… 
Connect the dots
These brain states include intense concentration, interspersed with play and relaxation. Play is associated with high-level reasoning, while relaxation turns your attention inwards to help you reach insights.
Tune out to tune up
The ability to tune out the outside world will also serve you well – there are certain brain activities that work better when you’re alone. Get into a state of ‘constructive internal reflection’ and see the ideas flood in.
“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something.”
Steve Jobs

Deep working creative minds

Maya Angelou's work was underpinned by simple but strict rituals and a deep work approach. She had a room reserved for writing (which had just a bed, desk, Bible, dictionary, deck of cards and a bottle of sherry). After her 6am coffee, she'd work uninterrupted into the afternoon.
“If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play.” So says John Cleese. Mr Monty Python says that periods of uninterrupted deep thinking go hand-in-hand with play in his office, and he fiercely protects time and space to work alone.
When trying to finish The Deathly Hallows, J.K. Rowling struggled to find creative headspace. So, she checked into a hotel suite close to Edinburgh Castle. Here, she was able to concentrate, focus, and ultimately write the wildly successful conclusion to the Harry Potter series.
