On Originality...

Posted on February 20, 2015 at 8:08am 1 Comment

“Salvador Dali once said, “Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.” King Solomon once said “There is nothing new under the sun.” We are all so caught up in originality and we should strive to do original work, but there is nothing wrong with learning from what has gone before. One of the great ways of developing your abilities and techniques is to copy those you admire. This is not to say we should create forgeries or anything like that, but they call those other people…

Why Creative Ministry Is Important...

Posted on February 12, 2015 at 10:00am 2 Comments

It started in 1986 (yes I am that old). I hadn't been in a church for other than a wedding or a funeral in about 10 years and my life was a mess. Suddenly I found myself in a church again.

Drinking problem, seriously depressed, terrified to speak in public and feeling pretty hopeless. How did I go from that guy…

Posted on February 4, 2015 at 9:03am 0 Comments

In my last post, I wrote about how organizations and businesses need to create a safe place to fail if they want to thrive in today’s creative economy. I could almost hear people pushing back even as my fingers hit the keys. I could hear phrases like “fiscal responsibility” and “what about the stockholders?” and “is he out of his mind?” And if you were thinking that, you might be a stumbling block to your own organization, but to some degree you were right. You see, I neglected to mention…

Creating a Safe Place to Fail

Posted on February 4, 2015 at 8:55am 0 Comments

I know I talk a lot about failure. There is a reason for that. Creativity is virtually impossible without taking risk, and a by-product of risk is failure. You could say creativity requires failure. The quickest way to stifle creativity is penalize failure. Over the next few days we are going to look at how to fail your way to success. Today we’re going to look at the organization’s responsibility in all of this. If you run an organization, don’t fret, we will also look at the responsibility of… Continue
