The Best Reason to Slack off I have ever heard.

The wonderful "Brain Pickings" site has reviewed Alex Cornell's book "BREAK THROUGH! 90 proven strategies to overcome creative block and Spark your imagination."

Alex has interviewed some people that I am hanging out to find out more about. I'm going to buy this book.Not to overcome block but to be inspired.



Be distracted

Be Inspired

Be grateful

Here are the top ten from the book;

Get enough sleep! Sleep is the best (and easiest) creative aphrodisiac.
Read as much as you can, particularly classics. If a master of words can't inspire you, see number 3.
Colour code your library. That is fun, and you will realize how many great books you have that you haven't read yet.
More sleep! You can never get enough.
Force yourself to procrastinate. Works every time!
Look at the work of Tibor Kalman, Marian Bantjes, Jessica Hische, Christoph Niemann, and Paul Sahre.
Weep. And then week some more.
Surf the Web. Write inane tweets. Check out your high school friends on Facebook. Feel smug.
Watch Law & Order: SVU marathons. Revel in the ferocious beauty of Olivia Benson.
Remember how L-U-C-K-Y you are to be a creative person to begin with and quit your bellyaching. Get to work now!
Also remember that creativity is not only for these brilliant people. We need to think creatively to do things differently in our lives.

Would a clear Focus help you?
Would developing a strategy take the pressure off?
