Every day brings challenges, problems to solve, and decisions to make. Ensuring we can come up with the right answer at the right time comes from high performance thinking. Are you operating with a high performance brain?
A few years ago I read an article on creativity that recommended being spontaneous like a child – for 30 minutes a day. I didn’t have that kind of time to spend, so I gave 5 minutes of silly, fun spontenaeity a go once a day for 5 days a week over 3 weeks. ( making up random songs; singing; dancing ; drawing ; playing chasey with my cats….) In the following months, I came up with some great creative solutions to workplace issues and logistics that were fabulously helpful and made a huge impact. Another spinoff was a great sense of achievement. Highly recommend spending this investment for some great outcomes and a more fun approach to creatively solving issues.
Yay Yvonne, that is brilliant. A great example of how "letting go" even for five minutes a day enables the creative process to build. Why waste all that childlike curiosity and fun just on the kids? As adults we benefit too.
