TRIPLE III TIME: Creativity “Fertilizer”

Have you ever heard or thought about the priceless value of spreading Creativity “Fertilizer” in your home…workplace…community?  This notion may sound odd and a little bit “out-there”…but consider the progressive impacts this type of activity can produce.

First think about the fact that most people really like becoming engaged with creative people.  Whether it’s the positive energy, thinking beyond the norm, and/or just the “dream-ability” that results from an open, blended discussion.

But what do I mean by spreading Creativity “Fertilizer”?  Here are a few examples:

  • FERTILIZERWriting down a fun single word on the breakroom board and asking for cool thoughts from co-workers.
  • Setting 15 minutes aside every other day to just visit with a co-worker about “what-else” your group could initiate.
  • Having an IDEA DROP-BOX in your workplace…for everyone.
  • Including a Creativity & Innovation time on every meeting agenda.
  • Sending out a monthly message to friends and colleagues asking for them “sprinkle” a little Creativity “Fertilizer” in their workplaces.
  • Occasionally bringing in a professional person…not connected to your workplace and asking them to share thoughts about creativity in their world.

I believe it is critical for everyone to spread a little Creativity “Fertilizer” from time-to-time.  It is a solid professional development habit and it makes innovative thoughts and actions contagious!
