“It's impossible to explain creativity. It's like asking a bird, 'How do you fly?" You just do." - Eric Jerome Dickey
Happy New Year! Welcome to InnovatorsBox's Newsletter!
Thank you for joining! We cannot wait to share what we have prepared to help YOU live a more creative, enriching, and joyful life. You are receiving this newsletter because you believe in the importance of creativity and you've expressed your interest in learning how to integrate it into your daily life in 2016.
We are thrilled!
As Eric mentioned above, creativity is within us. Acknowledging and welcoming it is the first step. If we don't believe we can fly or deny that we are flying, we are taking a step away from who we are and who we could become.
Nurturing creativity is critical to creative growth.
That's why in this quarterly newsletter, we will share fun resources, stories, and upcoming events on creativity that we've prepared just for you.
For instance, did you know that there are psychological reasons to why we feel more alive when we are creative? Check out psychiatrist Scott Barry Kaufman's December 2015 article. If you like what you read about his work, you may also want to check out his event this Tuesday January 5th at 7pm at Politics and Pros in Washington DC. I'll be there. Say hello if you plan to come!
When the world "doesn't set up any practice for creativity." as Kelly Leonard from Second City describes, it can be really difficult for one to understand how to live a more creative life. You might not know why you should even bother to be creative, especially if you aren't working in a creative industry.
Don't wait for a solution to drop into your lap.
Be proactive! You can find what inspires you to 'think differently' in a creative space that works for you, by asking new questions in your daily routine and by surrounding yourself with like-minded innovators who value the importance of daily creativity. As Jim Rohn has famously said "we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with."
We will discuss the HOW, WHY, and SO WHATs on creativity at our upcoming Mindful Mondays and Immersive Experiences. If you know others who might benefit, share this joy!
See you soon. Have a great 2016 start! It's going to be a GREAT YEAR!
P.S. Our first Mindful Monday session on Curiosity is on January 25th. Get your FREE tickets on January 4th at 12:00 PM. Space is limited to 12 seats. Don't miss out! Our next Mindful Monday won't take place until February 29th.
Mindful Mondays are 90 minute monthly gatherings on different elements of creativity. Sessions are interactive and facilitated by InnovatorsBox.
