Check out this article that offers some ideas on how to find creative inspiration, as suggested by some well-known artists…
Random Thought: Ever notice how they never really ask non-artists? How do “non-creative” folks find inspiration? The good news is, any one of us can become an artist, and we can all agree that everyone could use creative inspiration regardless of their walk of life. Still, I wonder how people in other fields would answer this...
In an attempt to have some discipline in practicing creativity, I have been taking a free, online course with Stanford’s Venture Lab called “Crash Course on Creativity”. There’s an assignment every week, which really puts pressure on me to force the time and my mind to go to this space regardless of work stress. I know I will be grateful for it eventually :)
This week’s assignment was to create a new sport using only 2 household items. I had only one night to come up with this, but I must say I am glad I did it. Hope you enjoy it too. Here's the link to my Slideshare.
I just started taking Tina Seelig’s Crash Course on Creativity via Stanford’s Venture Lab. It’s a free online class that I am taking with a few other tens of thousands around the world who have signed up for this. Here’s a link to one of the assignments for our first week, Tina’s Ted Talk. I was pleased to hear her reinforce some of the concepts I learned through David Cooperrider’s Appreciative Inquiry. His favorite quote of mine is “Our worlds are formed by the questions we ask.” Tina says something similar “…the way you ask the question determines the type of answers you get.” Check out her Innovation Engine Model, too. Gets the juices flowing for sure.
