The Power of Habit has been circling around my to-read-next list. It has been on some of the top reading list and book clubs have been raving about it. I finally sat down and spent some time completing The Power of Habit. In my opinion, THIS BOOK IS FANTASTIC! If you haven’t picked up this book, you are missing out. I believe that everyone should read this book at some point in the new year. Why? I will give 5 simple reasons.
Creativity gives you the power to create amazing things. But if someone asked the question of where did it come from, I can’t answer that. I don’t think anyone currently can. I was listening to TED Talk Radio Hour when they discussed this very topic.
If I say the word creativity what do you think it means? How does it apply to your life? Do you think that you have creativity? The dictionary says that creativity says “the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work”. I have worked in teaching, marketing, and other such profession that could be considered creative. I love books, drawing, and writing which are creative hobbies. However, I can not tap into my creative talents 24/7. I am only human. With my activities and some of my past jobs involving the need for creativity, I recognized the need for the immediate generation of creativity when you need it. So I had thought to myself, there had to be some way to trigger this power. I think I may have found the answer during my commute while I listened to the TED Radio Hour. They had an episode called Jumpstarting Creativity where people like Tim Harford spoke on how to rekindle and harness it.
