Quick Creativity Exercise by Gerry Katzman
Here’s the good news: your creative muscles will respond immediately to even the lightest amount of training.
Here is an exercise that takes a second and will definitely increase your creativity by leaps and bounds.
Taking a composition notebook (the kind you had in school), write your phone number and the word “confidential” on the front. Get a pencil and place them next to your bed.
As you wake up, take whatever is in your mind — a thought, a feeling, a picture — and write it down. It can be one word, it can be one letter, it does not have to make sense or even be in a recognizable language. Whatever you’ve got in your mind, write it, draw it, scribble, or scrawl it. You are not making sense, you are simply catching an image and transferring it to paper. If you have nothing in your mind, write a line down the page and close the book.
You are done.
This exercise will reward your creativity more magnificently than you could ever think possible. With only one second every morning, you are telling your subconscious that what it has to say matters.
And with that, your unconscious mind will begin to flow you a river of new thoughts and ideas that will surprise even the most creative person among us.
Your conscious mind will be delighted to start the day with an easy task to accomplish and you may notice a greater sense of order throughout the day. But whatever the reason, this exercise works.
Soon, you will find your creative powers growing exponentially. Try it for one week and let me (Gerry Katzman) know your results. Write to GKat250000@aol.com. Those who respond will be entered to win an opportunity to attend the next “Breakthrough Creativity Conference” for free!
