How to get creative – backwards and forwards

How creative are you?  Do you know your creative assets and blind spots?  Keep reading for a simple way to discover them.

With help from the wonderful Dolly Hopkins, I created a creativity skill set called E.S.C.A.P.E.  Each of the letters stands for a different creativity skill.

The ‘A’ stands for assumptions, as in identifying and breaking them down.  Making assumptions is the biggest creativity killer.

The most common creative assumption?  That’s easy.  That you’re not creative.

I beg to differ.  We’re ALL creative, we simply show our creative strips in different ways.

Here’s another example of an assumption.  Which way do you read?  If you’re reading English you read left to right.  But is that the only way?

What happens if we turn that assumption on its head?  A damn fine video, that’s what.

And your creative blind spots?  Take this simple 6 question assessment to find out how you rate on the creativity E.S.C.A.P.E. meter.

Want to learn more how to E.S.C.A.P.E. by embracing your own creativity?  Join me in the upcoming one day course I’m teaching by the same name, June 23rd from 10 am to 5 pm at Langara College in Vancouver, B.C.  Get more info and/or register.  Hope to see you there!
