Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love
We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.
But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.
48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.
If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.
Why does it seem that some people are more creative than others? Whether it's art, music, design, poetry, etc., it's like these things are so easy for certain people. Yet for others it seems like they don't have a creative bone in their bodies.
Creativity is not simply an issue of nature (born with) vs. nurture (learned). It's both. For some, creativity is a natural gift. For others it's developed over time. In either case your creativity needs to be stimulated.
With the incredible mind that God has given us, His expectation is that we would use it more creatively than we often do. Furthermore, utilizing creativity is an important tool for implementing your dream.
Unfortunately, many people are intimidated by the thought of being creative so they don't challenge themselves in this area. Interestingly, new research supports the concept of "use it or lose it", i.e. brain cells can die if they are not stimulated (click here for the story).
Well, it's not as hard to stimulate your brain cells as you may think. You can "catalyze" your creativity using five easy activities:
In order to continually stimulate your creativity, you need to intentionally venture outside of your daily routine. In fact, these types of activities should be part of your daily routine!
Lately, I've be re-inspired by spoken word artists to write some of my own poetry (which I haven't done in almost 10 years!). I am by no means a poet, but I enjoy poetry and attempting to write poems helps to fuel my creativity.
How do you catalyze your creativity? What is the most creative thing you have done lately? Leave a comment. I would love to hear your thoughts.
