The Idea Lab: Adventures in Creativity #51 * #BreveTV

Getting creative and setting the stage for creativity is not rocket science, but it’s important to create an environment that inspires creativity.  We talk about getting in your creative zone can influence your work, your ability to innovate, and improve your outlook on your business and personal life.  We also share ideas on how to get you there, including: embracing your imagination (remember building forts when you were a kid?), changing your mental landscape (go for a walk… get outside!), and looking outside your industry for inspiration.

We hope you enjoy our personal stories and the fun banter back and forth in this episode!

Some specific resources we shared:

Kelly’s new FAVE creativity sparking app:  The Brainstormer
Debra’s “Collaborative” Spotify Playlist: Writer’s Soundtrack
Book that inspired Debra’s morning ritual… and Pinterest visualization project: The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod

What do YOU do to get into a creative zone?

We look forward to seeing your ideas, questions and comments in the #BreveTV stream.
