Creativity involves a mindset change and seeing things with different or with "new eyes", ie "thinking outside the box"; ways of thinking outside the box (see diagram below) include chance, mistake, humour, provocation and madness. Remember:

"...a person with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds..."

Mark Twain

- Who would have thought that fungus on bread would produce life saving antibiotics?
- Who would have thought that migratory birds would help reveal the secrets of celestial navigation?
