Why do some people seem to find it easy to come up with fresh, brilliant ideas? And how do they turn them into something worthwhile?

After spending years getting up close and personal with some of the world's greatest creative thinkers, the BBC's Arts Editor Will Gompertz has discovered a handful of traits that are common to them all. Basic practices and processes that allow their talents to flourish, and which we can adopt – no matter what we do – to help us achieve extraordinary things too.

It's time to ‘Think Like an Artist’ and...

  • Become seriously curious (Caravaggio's discovery of optical lenses changed art forever)
  • Think ‘Big Picture’ and ‘Fine Detail’ (Turner transformed a masterpiece with a tiny dab of red paint)
  • And realize... art is nearly always Plan B (Mondrian spent years painting trees before becoming a master of abstraction)
