“Leadership requires INNOVATION. Innovation requires CREATIVITY. Sometimes you have to rip up the status quo to CHANGE YOUR LIFE, YOUR WORK AND YOUR WORLD.” ~ Artist BZTAT
We live our lives according to rules and expectations that are typically placed upon us from external forces. It is necessary – we cannot live strictly from our own desires and motives. Some rules and expectations lose their purpose, though. We grow out of them or they become obsolete. Yet we cling to them despite their lack of purpose.
Like an old pair of jeans that has become too tight or is losing its thread, we don’t want to give up the things that have served us well in the past, even when they have lost enduring value too us. Life gets stale. Work becomes mundane and boring. Creativity becomes a thing for others with artistic talent and not for us.
Creativity is for EVERYONE, not just artists.
If the seams in your jeans are too tight or no longer relevant, it’s time to RIP OUT THE SEAMS.
Sometimes we need to RIP OUT THE SEAMS for personal reasons. Sometimes we need to RIP OUT THE SEAMS to enhance our work life or social causes with which we have affiliated ourselves. Businesses and organizations need to gain the capacities that have been practiced by artists for thousands of years. According to the Adobe State of Create Study, “8 in 10 people feel that unlocking creativity is critical to economic growth and nearly two-thirds of respondents feel creativity is valuable to society, yet a striking minority – only 1 in 4 people – believe they are living up to their own creative potential.” Numerous factors intercede in our efforts to become more creative as individuals and as organizations. But creativity can be taught, and it can be learned.
I offer a variety of programming tailored to YOUR needs, whether it is for changing your personal life, your work or your world.
