Greetings all – the calendar is out – and Leonardo Da Vinci’s birthday the first day of World Creativity and Innovation Week, April 15 – 21, 2013 falls on a Monday – that gives you a great week to… to…
CHILL! That’s right, this year’s celebrations will revolve around you doing something a little new, a little different. You’ll discover another form of creativity that’s passive instead of active: appreciating, relishing, admiring instead of making, building, initiating.
There’s so many asking us to be actively creative every moment of everyday that this year, for our WCIW, we’re asking you to breathe, give thanks, affirm what creativity has done for you over your lifetime, and what creativity can do for you moving forward.
When we talk about creativity we mean new ideas used to create new solutions that will lead to new actions. 2013’s WCIW is about allowing your new ideas come from not doing, from pausing, taking a shower, going for a walk, waking, meditating, watching a fire, slowing down.
Are you up to it for one week in 2013? Are you willing to appreciate, observe, connect, intuit, recall, and admire all the creativity that came before you and again for that which will come from now until forever?
Wonder what that would be like before the actual day? Can you imagine slowing down and paying attention and giving thanks for what is right in front of you that resulted from someone’s creativity? Why not try it on for size and write in about your experiences, so others can share.
