Be Creative

I want to stay in touch while I figure out what’s going on with WordPress.

Here’s a dose of Inspiration:

Be Creative

  1. wonder, be curious;
  2. be enthusiastic, spontaneous and flexible;
  3. be willing to approach new experiences with an open mind and to see the familiar from an unfamiliar point of view;
  4. confront complexity and ambiguity with interest;
  5. take advantage of accidental events in order to make desirable but unsought discoveries (serendipity);
  6. make one thing out of another by shifting its function;
  7. generalize in order to see universal application of ideas;
  8. synthesize and integrate:  find order in disorder;
  9. be in touch with unconscious sources yet be intensely curious;
  10. visualize or imagine new possibilities;
  11. be analytical and critical;
  12. know oneself, have the courage to be oneself in the face of opposition and be willing to take risks;
  13. be willing to lose oneself in one’s work;
  14. be persistent, working for long hours in pursuit of a goal without guaranteed results.
