RELATED IDEAS

Our brains have two ways of operating
  • Focused: when you're very focused on solving the problem in front of you. But this also clamps down on unconventional and creative solutions
  • Distracted: when you’re unfocused and your mind wanders, because you’re relaxed. This engages the autopilot area of your brain. The rest of your mind is free to wander, making connections and encouraging creative thoughts to form.

“We are made to create. We feel useful when we create. We release our ‘stuckness’ when we create. We reinvent our lives, tell new stories, and rebuild communities when we create. We reclaim our esteem, our muse, and our hope when we create.”
