In short, for the mind to reach it is best potential, you need an environment that will appreciate and encourage creativity in all fields all the time. You need to be open minded all the time and listen to others all the time.
Seek expert advice when needed and do researches all the time in your field/fields. Learn from life experiences and concentrate on what is important and what is needed.
Your project for creativity may need financial assistance; you need to look for institutions or resources that will support you on the long run. Always believe that it is always possible to get the job done and nothing is impossible. What the mind can see, the mind can achieve. I believe this will help very much to promote creativity.
