So where in the world do ideas come from? Some people think that you just stand in the shower and a light bulb goes on... an idea! Ideas do tend to come to the surface when we are relaxed. But often those inspirations in the shower are 'ideas finally sprouting' that were planted at an earlier time.
In the business of developing touch or developing connection or developing content - whatever you want to call it - you have to understand that creativity is a state of mind. We need to cultivate the attitude of playfulness and curiosity. How can I expect to share touch if I have not developed it within myself?
Let's begin by taking the time to mess around. Fiddle and piddle and doodle. Risk a little scribble. It's just a piece of paper. So put down a little squiggle. Look at it for a few seconds. It will tell you what to try next. Be bold... Make a darker squiggle. Make a pattern of squiggles. Dark, light, dark, light. Play with it and wonder about what to try next. Hey! ...that gives me an idea. And that's the point... A starting point!
