Creative Blocks

…years you study creative thinking,
…creative conferences you attend
…creative thinking books you read or write
…creative thinking tools you learn or create

you will feel rejection

you will say to yourself I AM NOT CREATIVE

you can get DEAD SERIOUS
it will take being FOOLISH to generate creative ideas

No matter how many…
RULES YOU BREAK there will be more to BREAK

No matter how much LOGIC you use
it is OPENNESS to Unique and Novel that will yield a BREAK

Taking on too many projects
Not saying NO often enough
will produce OVER-WHELMENT.

Walking away to Incubate or just letting it go
will produce UNDER-WELMENT.

Sleeping on it
May just make you more tired and less creative.

What can you do?

Use your CREATIVE BLOCKS to SPARK NEW IDEAS!

Throw away the OLD PLANS, the EASY PLANS, what has WORKED BEFORE
And just CREATE SOMETHING NEW out of your CREATIVE BLOCKS

USE THEM!

Stop trying to ELIMINATE THEM!
