KICKSTART CREATIVITY IS FOR YOU IF YOU’RE PREPARED TO:
TRUST THE CREATIVE PROCESS. Ideas need time to grow and develop. When you set your dreams and endeavors aside to incubate, it may not seem like any creative movement is happening. But while you ponder a new concept or intention, you’ll find that new insights reveal themselves in unexpected moments.
PURSUE DISRUPTION. Despite what legend and lore has led so many of us to believe, the creative process is not really all that mysterious. Getting stuck or needing a spark of inspiration is all part of the deal. Take a disruptive (a productive!) break with Kickstart Creativity.
PROCEED ONWARD! One of the best-kept secrets for creatives and problem solvers is what Einstein called combinatory play, the act of opening up one mental channel by dabbling in a completely different activity; for example, Einstein would play the violin when he got stuck on a math problem. By using these cards to take imaginative leaps forward and to connect dissimilar dots, Kickstart Creativity gives you specific strategies for moving toward your visions, hopes, and dreams. Especially in this wild, wooly, and sometimes cruel world, all human beings deserve a little time and space to explore their creative potential. If we want to create a better future for ourselves and for generations yet to come, we need all imaginations engaged and all hands on deck.
BE OPEN. BE DETERMINED. BE FEARLESS.
