Creative Flow Challenge, 18 Days to Creative Power

It's assumed you are either creative -- or you're not.

Actually, creativity is a choice, and it can be significantly improved with the right approach, tools, techniques, and habits. Yes, creativity can be taught, and, creative effectiveness, even for those who don't think they are creative, can be improved. This can make measurable differences in both work and personal projects. Creativity is often equated with artistic self-expression, but that is a gateway, not a destination. 

The Creative Flow Challenge is an 18 day adventure in personal self-expression. The benefits of better access to your creativity AND consistent creative effectiveness are achievable. Participants in the challenge create daily, inspired by emailed prompts to get them into flow. Don't wait for lightning to strike. Join the challenge. Learn how to light your own candle -- for the rest of your life.

The challenge starts December 14th and goes through December 31. It requires at least a half hour of daily creative work. Every Day during the challenge. Register now.


Participants receive an electronic copy of "Jack's Notebook" Gregg Fraley's book on creative problem solving
