Invention, and creation as a whole, is a special thing. For most, it comes from a place of necessity. There is no one way to form ideas because everyone is different and has a unique view of the world. Some products that we currently use was at one point the first of their kind. Creating something generic is not something any aspires to achieve.

You are setting yourself up to many failures before you can finally find success. Children are creative because of their inherent inquisitive nature. Their minds are open to new opportunities and risks because they have different mental associations. Adults have experienced more social conditioning, which helps them to navigate social situation maturely and in an acceptable way. Children are under no such pressure.
Does that mean we should all start acting like children? No, but we can strive to think like them. Lateral thinking is a large part of creativity. Creativity has no rigid definition, and it shouldn’t have one, because it relies so heavily on innovation. In times of crisis, new inventions have been made. Some creative minds can push themselves to find answers to new problems as they arise. Under pressure, the human mind can do wondrous things.
