Let the Elephants Run

June 5th, 2015, Comments (1)

My inspiration for the Boundaries theme this month was a book I was recently sent, Let the Elephants Run: Unlock Your Creativity and Change Everything by David Usher. I've read a lot of books about creativity, so combined with a low attention span driven by life with tiny children, it takes a lot to truly capture my interest. Well, this book did. The way it's written in short bursts with bold graphics, caught my eye immediately. And the messages and action steps spoke to me. I found myself nodding a lot and thinking and then sketching out a big idea I've had in my head for weeks.  

The boundaries theme was inspired by this quote: "Pushing hard on the boundaries and being 'experimental' may not be where you need your imagination to live full-time for your creativity to function, but there is great value in being able to visit this place once in a while. The ability to vacation our imagination on the edge gives us the ability to expand our mind, opening us up to a whole world of possibility."
