Recently Doug Fields (@dougfields) tweeted the above video along with his three contributions over at his website. The video was so good and inspiring that I had to re-post it here. Props to To-Fu Design for their great work on the video.
Here’s my top 5 from the video:
#2 Carry a Note Book everywhere. I rarely go anywhere without it.
#8 Coffee. Semi-serious here. I love coffee, though sensing a caffeine addiction, I am only drinking de-caf these days. There is something to having a cup of your favorite beverage on hand while working to spark creativity.
#15 Practice. I am seeing this in my work as a coach. The more comfortable I feel with the basic skill, the more free I feel to ask more ‘out there’ questions that often stir greater creativity and effectiveness in my clients.
#27 Clean your work space. This is a personal one. It’s not that my desk is super neat or anything, but the process of clearing everything off of it usually sparks something.
#29 Finish Something. Want to feel free to create something new… finish something ‘old’.
(I also liked #’s 11, 16, 20, 22, and 25. The others are pretty good too. Have you even watched the video?)
Big Question: What of this 29 item list pushes your creative buttons? What would you like to add?
