Meditation Improves Creativity, but I don’t Need Such Effects.

This post is also available in: 繁體中文

The last time I gave a talk in Institute of Business and Administration – National Chiao Tung University (Taiwan), a student asked me whether or not I have my own experience that meditation ever gives me innovations.

“No, I can’t think of any”

Actually, I never lack of ideas or innovations. My mind is always overflowed of ideas. I can’t remember when was the last time I cannot think of a solution for a problem even if it probably might not be of a sudden. Meditation helps me keep the ability to do execution rather than paralyzed in the sea of ideas.

So, “Yes”, meditation improves my “creativity” a lot. Without cleaning thoughts I can’t execute to create. That is the way meditation boosts my creativity.
