  3. 3. Being creative can mean many things – It’s painting, it’s dance, writing songs we can sing It’s the essence of humanity – it’s how we survived It’s the very best part of being alive!
  4. 4. But, though we are born creative souls, all Often we feel we are hitting a wall. Ideas fail to come, the page remains bare The artist, upon a blank canvas must stare.
  5. 5. Is there a way – a tip or a trick To get unstuck and make things stick? To flow with that creative juice To untie the internal editor’s noose?
  6. 6. All good things come with practice, it’s true. But of course, you first must know what to do! So let’s unpack creativity… Find out what it is, essentially.
  7. 7. It’s sometimes frantic ideation… But often,  stillness – incubation. It can flood in a manic wave, Or come as habit, day by day.
  8. 8. It’s both consumption and production – At times even destruction. It’s novelty, but remix, too… Mash up the old to make the new.
  9. 9. It’s all about connecting dots; Finding relationships others see not. It works best with constraints, perimeters, rules – Things like time, resources, tools.
  10. 10. Let’s de-silo disciplines, Be unafraid of big questions, Train ourselves to notice more, And craft a clever metaphor!   Play and tinker without fear, Turn the status quo on ear. I hope this rhyme did resonate… I’ll see you there… let’s go CREATE!
