A rallying cry.
To all the inventors, the originators, the artisans, the craftsmen, the artists, the producers, the true geniuses and creators among us… and, within us, all…
When you find yourself waking up in the morning feeling particularly uninspired, it’s time to make time to create.
When the easiest path is to go through the motions of your “to do” list of tasks that you long ago mastered and which no longer stretch or springboard your continued growth, re-invest in yourself for a change. Create.
When the demands on your time during the day overwhelmingly siphon off your innovative energy, minimize them. Do what absolutely must get done, and put aside the rest. Give them attention only after you’ve nurtured your inventive spirit. Instead, create.
When facing a mental block preventing your enthusiastic and brilliant contribution to conquering the mundane – or the challenging — look inside and unearth what brings you joy. Get unstuck. Create.
If you’re not looking forward to a new problem to solve, a new campaign, a fresh canvas… tackle the day with only a single item on your agenda: to create.
After pouring your heart and soul into work that benefits your clients or your employer, leaving you creatively, emotionally, intellectually or spiritually drained and spent, the most essential task you face is to focus on what benefits you, for a change. Create.
At the end of the day, when you’re left with nothing but your dreams and ideas, swimming gloriously through your head, create something.
Whether it’s a new way of thinking. A new way of doing. A new way of being. A new experience or reality. Or just a fresh pair of eyes. Imagine how it may appear to enter the same place by a different door.
This world could use something that doesn’t yet exist. A little original thinking never hurt anyone.
How do you get unstuck?
