Creativity Tips: Luck of the Irish and Everyone Else

Creative people get lucky. (Stop it.)

I'll start again. There are times when I can't find the right word for an ad or brochure or poem. I can struggle with it for hours. Then, I'll be driving down the highway, and see the perfect word -- the perfect word -- on a billboard.

It's pure luck. And being open to it.

This week, be receptive to all the luck that surrounds us. Appreciate it. Get lucky.

Lucky us, to have the Creative Instigator inspiring us! I also suggest the perfect soundtrack for the day from the movie Once, which takes place in Dublin. There's no traditional Irish jig, no bagpipes but I recommend "If You Want Me" or "Falling Slowly."
