Creativity involves new connections, listening, that’s right

Would you agree that you are the product of a creative act?

For you to exist, two cells connected for the first time in a hospitable environment, and grew.

This World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21, make new connections.

Why?

Every person, idea, group, organization, challenge, or opportunity carries a similar cell be it an idea or a question that, when paired with another, can give birth to a new solution, product, service, approach to life.

Help give birth to the world we want by making new connections with issues related to sustainability, personally, professionally, and intentionally, to create a world we want, and a world future generations will appreciate and be grateful for.

WCID (April 21)  and WCIWeek (April 15-21) provide a hospitable environment in which new connections can be started, nurtured and grow.

Listen. 

“Listening to each other gives birth to an unborn child,” said Vijay Ayer, jazz musician, and MacArthur Fellow. ” Music is made of us listening to each other.”

Let’s connect, listen and make music World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21.

This from Seth Godin

“If you want people to become passionate, engaged in a field, transformed by an experience — you don’t test them, you don’t lecture them and you don’t force them. Instead, you create an environment where willing, caring individuals can find an experience that changes them.

Quote from Seth Godin, “Will This Be on The Test?” on the quality of online education from 2016.  Bolding added.

Tip for WCID April 21.

Create a space in the world to create where there may not be one.
