  4. 4. What is Creativity?
  5. 5. • Assumptions We see what we think we see. Change your assumptions and you change the world, starting with you!• Mental Clutter Today’s pace of living makes it difficult to focus, reflect and gain perspective = overload• Narrow mindedness When in a box, hard to see outside and discover opportunities. Our vision conforms to what confines it. Difficult to avoid “group think”
  6. 6. • Fear Puts us in a box• Powerlessness Keeps us in a box• Narrow mindedness Vision obscured. Our vision conforms to that which confines it.Break out of the box and find Creativity

  10. 10. • Be brave enough to live life creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can’t get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you’re doing. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover will be yourself. ~ Alan Alda, 1936- ~
