Yes you read it right, lets GET LOST as often as possible..
Surprisingly, getting lost can promote the "Creative Genius" in you..
PROMOTE MORE CREATIVITY THAN INTELLIGENCE.
By in large, academics at schools & colleges has more to do with INTELLIGENCE than CREATIVITY.
INTELLIGENCE - Ability to think, learn & reproduce helping us to score 750+ on GMAT/1600 on the SATS or Mastering 14 languages at the age of 12.
In contrast, many renowned psychologist believe Real Life Success depends on being more CREATIVE than INTELLIGENT.
Contests like DOODLE 4 GOOGLE plays a vital role in promoting creativity & imagination with passion & purpose especially in younger minds
Creativity - Not just for younger minds but a distinguishing trait necessary in every world to create Fulfilling Life or Flourishing Career. Every achievement big or small has a stroke of creativity to it.
We tend to get lost & lose track of time when we indulge in specific activities that interest us the most. By performing these activities we are consciously trying to reach unconscious part of our brain which can induce Creativity/Creative ideas ..

I call it as an "ESCAPE ACTIVITY"- Activity that helps you to get lost & find the REAL YOU.
I voluntarily engage in activities like Photography, Reading, Walking to get lost but my all-time favorite lost time/escape activity is ' A Long hot relaxing Bath'..lol
For many years my mom has relentlessly tried to change this time & water consuming habit but with little success to her efforts till date it has been an activity which allows me to get lost to ignite my creative genius..
Its been scientifically proved that many life changing ideas are born at times when mind wanders/gets lost because human mind attains its maximum Creativity when its Still.
