Drill and Repetition
This element isn't as bad as it sounds. Whatever you do repetitively can be directed towards a goal, becoming part of Element 1.
Element 2: Noodling
This is Element 1's creative side. Combine your little drills in unique ways to gain insight from them.
This is the "learning the notes" stage of things. Reading, memorizing, and conventional studying all fall into this element.
Analysis and Internalization
Combine Elements 1, 2, and 3. Add a dash of dreaming, and you have Element 4.
Element 5: Creativity
Innovation and Invention
This is the kind of creativity that adds to a discipline and changes society in the process. An example might be the invention of the cellular telephone.
Imaginative creativity applies a well-learned discipline to the practice of another discipline. The most common example would b writing a science fiction story to improve your understanding of, say, genetics.
Direct creativity applies specifically to the discipline you're pursuing. Writing a symphony would be a sample of direct creativity in music.
