Makerology-DO-ing Changes YOU!

Makerology-DO-ing Changes YOU! | The Creative Commons | Scoop.it

Technology is just like anything else. Cooking, Oil Painting, Fixing a Car Engine, and Building IKEA Furniture.  Some things come natural to us and some don’t.   So if we are really going to help others learn something, it won’t start with a set of instructions or a training session. It will start with a conversation, empathy, and the time to figure out how to best deliver the help.  Relationships. This might only take a few minutes, but it will be worth more than any of the other time spent.

Andrea Zeitz's insight:

Goodness-I love this woman! Thanks Krissy from Venspired-you so rock!

18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently

18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently | The Creative Commons | Scoop.it

Creativity works in mysterious and often paradoxical ways. Creative thinking is a stable, defining characteristic in some personalities, but it may also change based on situation and context. Inspiration and ideas often arise seemingly out of nowhere and then fail to show up when we most need them, and creative thinking requires complex cognition yet is completely distinct from the thinking process.

Chuck Jones -One of the All-time Masters of Visual Comedy

If you haven’t watched Looney Tunes since you were a kid you may not be aware of just how brilliant the classic shorts were. Sure, Wile E.
