Want to Feel Creative? Treat Your Brain

What if the economy is based on your ability to generate new ideas and make new decisions that make the world a better place and make your place in the world better too?

Suppose the reason you go to school, or to work, or to do anything is for you use your creativity and to contribute your unique gifts, talents, insights and skills in novel and appropriate ways.  What might that mean for you, your teachers, your employers, your clients, your governments?

Let’s pretend that creativity is what life is all about, and you want to stir your juices for an even fresher perspective than the one you have now, that you want to feel even more creative than you already are.  Here’s a simple tip: treat your brain.

Brains love exploring and connecting, making patterns and imitating, making new connections, being challenged and having a diversity of experience.  What’s one thing you can do to indulge your brain?  How might you help others treat their brains too?

World Creativity and Innovation Week is coming.  It’s April 15 – 21. Since 2002, people from all over the world celebrate in their own ways.  What might your celebration be in 2012?
