Igniting our “creativity” engine
This may seem like such an obvious question but you would be surprised at some of the answers I have received. I am very curious as to where do all of you get your moments of “eurekas” or mini-epiphanies? The best part is that all we need is a moment of creative spark within us and BAM... ideas start to sprout into creative and productive endeavours.
-Home; any particular section of your house?
-Nature; parks, trails, beach, mountain, ocean?
-Urbanized atmosphere; coffee shop, shopping mall(particular section?), streets, work environment?
-On an airplane, car, boat, train?
