How does one become “creative”?  Do new ideas just POP into your head?  Well, of course not!

We are the sum total of all of our experiences, explorations, and relationships.  Some good, some bad…none the less, we have been inflluenced by all of them.  

Are you feeling less than creative at the moment?

Maybe the answer is to find new experiences, explore new places or ideas, read a book on a subject you know nothing about, and seek out new relationships.  And by the way, new relationships can mean more than finding a few friend….it can also mean how one idea or thing relates to another idea of thing….creating something new.

But I think most of all…being creative means working at it.  It does not happen by accident.

It’s amazing how effective we can be when we are focused on something…so focus your full attention right now on being creative.  

What new ideas have you had today?
