Creativity is essential as a skill for this century.

Rachelle Wooten's curator insight, March 26, 2013 11:25 AM

If there is one area where we could really use some creativity is in the area of PD!

Time is always an issue but it's so necessary to creativity.

Plus you get to watch a video on the topic from John Cleese - come one, JOHN CLEESE! Great read!!

"As children, fear is a natural part of our lives, but as adults we view fear as a disease. It’s not a disease." - Psychologist Robert Maurer //

 

“Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.” James Thurber  //

 

Ben Stiller stars in and directs a movie version of Thurber’s famous story “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and comments, “At a certain point, you want to be taking chances. That’s when you’re having the most vital experiences.”
