I read a great and very simple article today on creativity. parajumpers gobi No techniques, no brain scans, no lectures, no expensive tools or books, just the simple act of making time. Josh Linkener says “In fact, very few people actually schedule time to think, create, and invent. But those that do are the ones that make history” Click here to read the full article. Creativity is really simple because it’s natural. Kicking your creativity into gear is really simple as well. Doudoune Parajumpers The challenge is actually making it happen.

I am already looking forward to...

I met with a new business partner last Friday. I have plenty of people always ringing up and wanting to meet with the view of collaborating (getting some work) with Visualfunk. These mostly don’t go far (for many reasons) but this particular time it did. As Visualfunk is a business about creativity, I always look to see how the people we ever partner with practice this. I had my meeting at the clients office space. When I walked in, I was blown away. Buy MU Online Legend Power Leveling Not because of how corporate slick or expensive it was but because it was creativity central! It had artifacts from all over the world, a number of physical projects that everyone was working on, loads of art, music and home made furniture from things they had found and converted. There was something cool going on everywhere that you looked. This doesn’t mean it was cluttered, it was just very funky. He showed me a number of things that they had made and the current projects. This place was alive and living. When I left I was massively inspired. mu legend zen for sale How could great things not happen in an environment like this? My point? The environment that you create for yourself has a massive influence on your creative output and energy levels. If you sit in a communist era grey cubicle each and every day, how can you expect to produce amazing work, come up with amazing ideas and most importantly, have the energy to put them into action? Ignoring your environment is a great way to stifle your creativity. I immediately knew from the environment that we met in that this person valued curiosity, had a great imagination, plenty of motivation and walked around with eyes that were open to the world. Buy MU Online Legend Power Leveling All essential attributes for developing your creativity. Whatever you want to achieve creatively, before you start worrying about the output or what thinking process you will use, create a fantastic environment that will stimulate your creativity and keep this space alive. Put up a painting. Make something. Paint a wall! Change it, add to it and have some fun. Go nuts and great things will happen for your creative...

We have a pantry door in our kitchen that has been turned into our blackboard and my 4 year and 2 year old children LOVE it. They draw on it all the time. My oldest son recently asked me to show him how to draw a pear so he could learn how to do it. I drew the pear, he then drew a pear and then coloured in the one that I drew. Both pictures are still on the blackboard and I have been studying his colouring in. From an artistic view point, it works really well. It’s fresh and energetic, has plenty of movement and most importantly, it isn’t between the lines. He is at a stage where he isn’t worried about it being perfect. He doesn’t care about lines, its about making his marks and the pear looks fantastic for it. He doesn’t put boundaries around his expression. He just goes for it and all kids his age do. (Not just a over proud parent…)The creatively rock and roll. parajumpers soldes We are all born naturally creative and for many people, it goes down hill from there. I think that the moment we start getting taught to keep between the lines, we start to stifle our creativity and the slippery slope starts. Mens Belstaff Leather & Shearling Kids suddenly start worrying about mistakes, stop taking risks, judge ourselves on the output rather than the process, lose the ability to play and generally tighten up the creative sphincter! Picasso talks of you spend the first 7 years of your life painting like a child then the rest of your life trying to paint like a child. I think to many of us then go on to live our life between the lines. 2017 Winter Clothing No risk, worrying to much about mistakes, not playing, not expressing who you are, not enjoying the moment and squashing our wonderful imagination and creativity. SO, dont live between the lines and DEFENITELY don’t colour between the...

I rarely write about team building as I love to write about creativity. At Visualfunk, they are inextricably linked. Snoods We get teams doing creative activities together to develop their creativity. We look on creativity as a skill to be developed through activity and this is based on everyone’s creative background in the arts and culture and living creatively!. As such, many of our activities fall under the team building genre and it is how a lot of people initially view what we do. I love working with people and I love the fact that what we do ensures everyone has a great time in the process so this has to work for me. Womens Belstaff Knitwear We get great feedback so something is working well! Having worked in this role for many years, you get to read people’s faces very well. When we kick off, there is about 50% of the room with a look of trepidation/horror/contempt/disgust on their face (even though they are thinking that they are hiding it). Why? Because EVERYONE has been through a crap ‘team building’ program and is expecting something similar again. I have been through them and a bad program can be absolutely destructive on moral and team function. I read an article today from last year in the Sydney Morning Herald about team building which gives it a real serve (and I think rightly so). mu legend redzen There are many comments that agree but also some that don’t. The best comment that I think sums it all up is A good facilitator delivering a team building program that is engaging can have a powerful and lasting impact on the business and for those attending. Check the credentials of the Training or Team building company before committing time, money and effort. Experience is worth it. Remember, Not every company is the same. There are no real barriers to entry in the team building market. You don’t need a team building degree to start a company. Anyone can do it so the results will be very different Not every facilitator is the same. Look at your facilitators bio and testimonials. What is their corporate experience and understanding of your world? Make sure you meet with your facilitator. Great things happen when people meet in...

I read a great short post from Seth Godin today. It said: Wasting time is not a waste In fact, wasting time is a key part of our lives. Wasting time poorly is a sin, because not only are you forgoing the productivity, generosity and art that comes from work, but you’re also giving up the downtime, experimentation and joy that comes from wasting time. If you’re going to waste time (and I hope you will) the least you can do is do it well. Downtime and experimentation is a key part to being creative. The moment that you start to take restrictions off your time and expected outcomes you should have, you can start to truly play and experiment. When we are all so busy, it’s hard to do but the joy of taking the weight of expectation off your shoulders, silencing the internal critic and just playing is wonderful. Artists do it. Kids do it all day and are the most creative people that I...
