Welcome to Creativity Cookies, your monthly invitation to creative action!
The BIG IDEA for this month is
In an article in Psychology Today, author Nancy K. Napier suggests we encourage each other, when we offer ideas, by saying, “tell me more”
Sadly, many ideas don’t get spoken aloud. Their discouragement starts in the internal responses of their thinkers.
How wonderful it would be if (in the privacy of our own brains) we invited a new idea to sit down, relax and tell us all about itself. What if we treated an idea like an honored guest?
Next time you have a creative thought, mentally invite it to tell you more. Journal, sketch or chat with it as hospitably as you can.
(If you are as neurotically inquisitive I am, email me and I’ll tell you more about what’s going on in this clever piece of marketing. I spent far more time researching it than was necessary.)
