When does creativity visit you?
It’s shower for me. Almost every week I get some pretty awesome ideas when hot water runs and the evening is kicking in. Many times I open already sleeping laptop just after shower and send an email or two, just so the idea doesn’t get forgotten. They are not always great ideas, they are lateral and provide new insights into old problems. Or sometimes they are just creativity without being related to any existing problem.
The only problem is that this kind of creativity is not the most eco-friendly out there :).
Where and when do you do your best thinking? For me, it’s in the pool. As I power up and down the lanes, I rethink what I’ve learned. I now have the time and space to solve whatever problems have arisen. It’s an important meeting with myself, and I keep it religiously. Because the day I lose it, I’ve lost myself.
