Creativity comes from looking for the unexpected and stepping outside your own experience.

Creativity is a great motivator because it makes people interested in what they are doing. Creativity gives hope that there can be a worthwhile idea. Creativity gives the possibility of some sort of achievement to everyone. Creativity makes life more fun and more interesting.

Creativity is the answer. I always prefer the creative solution to an expensive solution.
