"Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way." -Edward de Bono
“Variety is the spice of life.” Shaking things up can expand your perspective, allowing you to experience things in an entirely new way. For many people, new experiences are an ultimate source for creativity. Fresh perspectives open your mind, leaving plenty of room for creation. So go on… give your days some flavor.
For me, historically the thought of exercise has held about as much excitement as chewing on a piece of gum that lost its flavor an hour ago is tasty. The fact that I get bored easily when I'm at the gym and that I love the Christmas fudge my family churns out every year - well, I was not the first to jump on board with the December challenge.
However, after reading a number of the intense committments others made, I thought I could probably trade in a few re-runs of The King of Queens (that Arthur just cracks me up) to get up off the couch.
The December Challenge…
Wow! Where do I start? The December Challenge for me really didn’t start in December. It actually started July 22nd in the Lifebook Lounge, and the “December Challenge” for me represents another critical signpost and experience in the transformational journey I’ve been so blessed to embark on this past 6 months.
