  • I wld like to talk about creativity from the perspective of earning a living from being creative, sometimes being under pressure. I was scared out of my wits on my 1st job where I had to rely on my creativity. Thought I’d put together some ways to think about creativity and how to live a creative life.
  • But these ideas are not likely to work. You’re going to need A PLAN. BTW, if you do anagrams, you will see that my name can be found in this magical word!
  • Where does creativity come from?
  • Maybe it happen when a light goes off in your head
  • Maybe creative thoughts are born in dreams
  • If you’re born with it, you get to use it; If not born with it, what can you do?
  • There may be times when you need help with creative ideas. Team, group,
  • When we have a creative challenge it’s important to remember it’s how we look at that challenge
  • I started looking for some ways to increase creativity, ways to apply it to my challenge
  • I thought about a project starting from a something really large like this marble quarry
  • Brought it down to size
  • We might start to think about what we can do to this block of marble.
  • Some producers will think big
  • Somewill think big
  • Some will think small
  • Some will think cake
  • Some will get brain fog
  • Or maybe even brain freeze
  • Here’s what Michelangelo did
  • I’ve identified 2 kinds of needs.Creative thought manifests itself when we are doing other things – especially things that require our bodies to be in motion.
  • You might want to take up a little gardening
  • Or take up landscaping. On website people didn’t realize a landscaper “created” this dancing tree
  • Try looking at things from a different angle
  • Escape!
  • Enjoyed being part of the MOOC with you
