You are not reaching your current productivity potential. Numerous esteemed experts agree that standing is better than sitting and that walking is better than standing. Despite this, your workplace only provides inhumane chairs and stagnant standing desks for you to use while you struggle to get through a workday full of distractions and bodily pains.Rise up, sedentary sentients, and unleash that untapped potential within by marching endlessly towards a brilliant future of focused work. Step forward into a world of infinite potential, bounded only by the smooth arcs of a wheel. Step forward into the Hamster Wheel Standing Desk that will usher in a new era of unprecedented productivity.This project is a collaboration at Pier 9 between Artist-in-Residence RobbGodshaw and artist Will Doenlen.

I'd add to this....share with customers what you know about them...without telling them directly -- naturally.  It's important to let your market know you understand and feel their pains.  It's great when you share there pain.

Creativity More Valuable Than Passion: An Entrepreneur's Rules of Creativity

Creativity More Valuable Than Passion: An Entrepreneur's Rules of Creativity | baby boomer entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

After @Hannah Kramershared a great post about Creativity being more important for startup entrepreneurs than passion I wanted to weigh in and share related experience growing up with the right side of the brain being my dominant hemisphere (lol).

I share 5 ideas from the daughter of Gatorade's inventor:

* Creativity Bigger Predictor Than Intelligence.
* Creativity Can Be A Hard Row To Hoe.
* Creativity & Structure.
* Creativity can be learned and taught.
* Creativity happens at intersection of disciplines.

Great post hope my hard won experience contributes something helpful.
