Creativity is “thinking about a situation, a task, or an idea in a new way”.
Creativity means finding a new or different way to view a situation or accomplish a task. Often a new idea combines different parts of already existing ideas into something new. For example, a baking recipe may have a few of the same ingredients in both cookies and bread but when you combine those ingredients with a few other different ingredients, you get different results. A creative person looks for different and better ways to make or accomplish good things.
