John Michel's curator insight, January 14, 8:16 AM

Sustained creativity doesn’t come from a flash of brilliance or a single afternoon of inspiration. It comes from a consistent routine that serves as the bedrock for getting things done.

Penelope's curator insight, January 14, 6:20 PM

 

This is a great post to start off the new year. Unique routines. We all have them. They can be fairly tame or outright crazy. I was especially interested in routines of the writers in the bunch.

 

Best-selling author Cheryl Strayed on the importance of writing daily:

"Writing forces you to locate your clarity."

 

Radio host Garrison Keillor makes sure to get into the “observable world.”

 

See if you can find a routine that sparks a new idea in you!

Penelope's curator insight, November 6, 2013 8:16 PM

 

Stories about people are fascinating. Stories about people who do crazy things for what they believe in? Intriguing. What sets these people apart from everybody else? At what lengths will they go to achieve their dreams?

 

Read on for a story about a young man who believed in his dreams enough to sleep in his car for three months. This is the story of the co-founder of social news-sharing app--Grasswire.

 

What made him take extreme measures to see his dream unfold? I believe it is summed up in one word. Passion.
