In my search for creativity..today I found something interresting. I'm not taking credit for this mans work, only finding it inspirational and a bit amusing. A summary of steps to finding creativity, sharing which ones I liked.
~If Bach doesn't make you more creative, you should probably see your doctor
~Randomly open the dictionary select a word and formulate ideas
~Define your problem on paper. Take notes
~If you can't think take a walk.
~Don't watch TV. Experiments performed by the JPB Creative Laboratory show that watching TV causes your brain to slowly trickle out your ears and/or nose. It's not pretty, but it happens.
~Don't do drugs
~Read a lot!
~Exercise your brain.
I took a walk today into a store I've never been in before. It sparked my creativity :) I didn't find what I was looking for but I came out of there with so many more ideas! So I headed out to the next store and found what I needed. I'm thinking something close to what I made a year ago..
...but different! I'll let you know how it turns out.
