People have created apps and gadgets that help you unravel the mysteries of life and give you knowledge adding more to your creativity. For instance, people learnt to make things easier for themselves when they learnt about the creation of the wheel.

You can use your creativity to make a new way of sewing cloth and a revolutionary concept of clothing by using a little creativity in your work. I have never seen any human being doing something good or bad, who is not creative. A person who is mending a shoe or is sitting in a furnished office signing a million-dollar check has creativity in their own field and area of specialization.
