Here at Banyan Creative we draw on inspiration and creativity from all kinds of sources. An amazing new business model, a new analytics platform, learning to code in html, riding our mountain bikes, reading a book or even a walk in the park. Inspiration is all around us. Barry Saunders from Joe Smith, recently video blogged on the TheHighCalling.org website about what matters to him in everyday work. Barry visually reminds us in that to flourish in our work that we are to "Hunt Creativity" more often than not. We are to bring all of who we are into our work. It won't always find us. So maybe take a different road home from work today. Try a new restaurant. Take up that hobby you've been afraid to try. Ride your bike down a dirt trail. One of the earliest commands in history is to go forth and create. And to create well we need inspiration.
You may find creativity is much closer than you think. Don't be afraid to try something new without worrying about the end game. At Banyan we call this the creative process.
Dream about it.
Sketch it on a napkin.
Take a hike and dream about the possibilities.
Talk about it with your friends.
Sam Casey is the Chief Creative Officer and Managing Partner at Banyan Creative.
