Creativity Tip: Not Tonight, Dear

Having a headache is a classic -- and occasionally valid -- excuse for behavior avoidance. (Isn't that a nice way to put it? How creative of me.) However, not being "in the mood" for creativity is no excuse for not being creative. Whether you're going to write, paint, be a powerful source for good in a business meeting, or decide what to make for dinner tonight, at some point today you will need to be creative.

So, to start your week off right, here's my creativity gift for you this fine Monday morning.

Get out a pen and a piece of paper. Draw a big smiley face. Now, draw a star. Very good.

The star is from me. You get a gold star for being incredibly creative. How do I know you're incredibly creative? Heck, look at that smiley face.

Seriously? How do I know you're creative? Well, given the number of posts on this blog, chances are good that I personally know you, and I don't know a single person who isn't creative. And, on the off chance that I don't know you, I still know you're creative.

We all are. Trust me on this. But only my special creative wizards are starting their day with a gold star!

Here's to a great week, filled with creative fun.
