Creative Juices

September 14, 2011

September seems to prompt the creative juices to get flowing – a loyalty to acquiring education that remains in our hearts long past the school years perhaps. I found myself inspired to read an intriguing non-fiction book called The Element – How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything by Sir Ken Robinson. Robinson may be a familiar name to those of you who’ve had an opportunity to see his TED talk on the importance of incorporating creativity into education. I’ll include links to the talk and to his books below for those who would like to know more about Sir Ken and his theories. He is a compelling (and funny!) speaker and writer. Find his website here and enjoy a number of his archived articles as well.

Meanwhile, I thought I’d share this list with you – it’s posted above my desk to keep me focused (with varying results) – and I hope it prompts you to explore your own creativity with great success!

  1. That is an awesome list, and so true. It’s quite profound to see it articulated like that. I’m going to put it up on my workspace as well.

    When my favourite book blog pal told me she was reading The Element I knew it was the perfect book to talk about with my daughter who had experienced a teacher most recently who had not “tread softly”. (2010 ted talk reference…) She LOVES the stories Ken Robinson relays within his book. I love his two Ted talks and the behind scenes at Ted clip so I was thrilled to find his website and see more clips! Thank you Bedside Table Books lady!
    p.s. I love you but how do I ‘like you’ on facebook? I’ve posted your link on my wall but that just isn’t enough… 🙂
