Tap Into Your Own Creativity
YOUR OWN CREATIVITY
The “Nap room”. While watching a video (INBOUND 2013 – Arianna Huffington Keynote), Arianna commented that they had put in 2 nap rooms at her office. At first people were resistant to the idea of taking a nap when they were at work however, now they have plans for a third room because the other 2 are constantly booked.
The idea is to do what is necessary to recharge.
Think about this for a moment:
There was this business office where one of the employees was sitting around his office just staring off and doing nothing more. This went on for days until some of the other employees got together and went to complain to the boss. When the boss heard, he jumped up and said that no one is to disturb him. They could ask if he needed anything, a cup of coffee or anything else BUT OTHERWISE, DO NOT DISTURB HIM! The other employees looked at each other but before they left the office, the boss said: THE LAST TIME HE WAS LIKE THIS, HE CAME UP WITH A $MILLION DOLLAR IDEA!
How do you tap into your own creativity?
TAPPING INTO YOUR OWN CREATIVITY
In the video I mentioned above, Arianna Huffington talked about getting enough sleep because if you are well rested, you probably will be more productive. She found this the hard way when she fainted at her desk, cracked her cheek bone and required stitches for her forehead.
What do you need to do so you can tap into your own creativity? Some people need to just “get away” from it all. It may be your environment that holds you back. Have you considered “taking an electronics break”? You may need to turn off all your electronics and just spend time in your own mind.
In a book I read years ago, there was a business man that carried a note pad in his shirt pocket. While he traveled by train, he would fall asleep and when he awoke, he would find solutions to his problems written in the note pad. A fellow traveler commented about him writing in this note pad and seeming to be asleep at the time. He assured the other traveler that he was indeed asleep and this was when he received his best solutions.
