TAKE A BREAK

Why I have a section called “Get Inspired” and “Take a Break”.

The idea of this section is to ‘shake out’ your mind, let your own creativity emerge and just have a bit of fun. Sit back, breath easy, relax, watch/read/write and smile. This is a free, healthy, instant productivity booster!

 

  • + When you last had an inspiration, a creative spark, an idea – where were you?
    Write down the place and what you were doing. Try to consciously set yourself a creative task while doing this activity and to ensure this activity is anchored in your daily routine.

 

 

  • + Here is the completely bias, incomplete, unsorted, unofficial Vancouver-Crucial-Word-List. If you are not originally from Vancouver (which most of us aren’t), you might want to research and incorporate all of them into your vocabulary 😉
