Creative Concepts

Welcome mistakes.

Don’t wait for inspiration to strike.
Sometimes good ideas just pop into our heads. But more often, it takes effort. “You can’t sit and wait for a brilliant idea to come along, you’ve got to get your hands dirty.” “Build up that discipline of action no matter what, and you open the window for creativity to fly through,” said Veronica Lawlor.

What activities do you do that make you feel creative? What time of day are you most creative? What places make you feel creative?
