Getting (Or Staying) Creative

Creativity is like soap. Just when you’ve got it in your hands and it feels good – it slips away. Many people don’t understand that creativity needs to be nurtured; others think that creativity is just for “artists.”

Creativity is an important component of a happy life. It doesn’t matter whether it’s in the kitchen, the garden, the classroom, the boardroom or the cocktail party. It’s really more of an attitude and a skill combined.

How does a creative person behave? How do they think?

Who do you think is creative? Watch them, listen to them, support them.

Not sure how nurture your creative side? Try this – 29 Ways to Stay Creative.

    Although the soap washes away, it brings out the best in everything from the bubbles that escape to the air from the sink, to finally getting that crusty cheese off the plate from that midnight snack, to that satisfactory finale when you can put the last dish on the rack. I would suggest that creativity can start by skipping the dishwasher for a day and exploring the fun side of anything – even washing dishes by hand. It is a perspective that can be transferred to any project. Elbow grease can go a long way!

    Nick, What a wonderful perspective. Wash the dishes by hand and enjoy the feel of the soapy water – act like a kid. Be a human being not a human doing! Thanks.
