“If you ask a group of four year olds, who is an artist or who is creative, most will put their hands up. If you ask them again at the age of 14, only one or two will put their hands up.”
Why? Chris Lewis answers this and more about creativity and individual thought in the new Too Fast To Think podcast. In the six-part series, listeners are challenged to explore the crucial traits that are inherently linked to creation and innovation.
Inspired by the Too Fast To Think book, the podcast exposes what our exhausted work and education culture is doing to our health and minds. The series reveals how we can change the way we critically think based on findings in cognitive research and lessons from both historic and personal experiences.
