Creativity Tips: Let Someone Else Do It

OK, so there you are, mired in your creative doldrums, no ideas whatsoever. No inspiration. No interest. Your get-up-and-go has got-up-and-gone.

No problem. Happens all the time. That's why we have creative teams. When you can't break through your creative block, let someone else come up with the perfect solution.

Here's the nice part: With the right team, you won't even have to ask for help -- although that's a perfectly wonderful thing to do. This post is an example. The links are from Vicki and Leslie, and they're both great. ("Both" in that sentence referring back to Vicki and Leslie, and the links.)

The photo? Ah ... that's another creative block buster. It's from Claire, a young woman who clearly inherited her creative genius from Jody, who forwarded the photo. Meet Billy Ray Cyrus Gilbert. The block buster? Play with a kid. Borrow one if you need to. There's nothing like a younger perspective to get those creative juices flowing!
