Focusing on Creativity

In her famous book The Artist's Way, Julia Cameron says "It is safe to open ourselves up to greater and greater creativity" (this is Principle No.9 of her "Basic Principles"). This may or may not be true. However, it has prompted me to suggest an exercise for you for this week:

1. In what ways do you think that you are creative? - You can use as broad an understanding of 'creativity' as you like, it doesn't need to be as an artist, writer, musician, actor etc (though it can be), it might be as a parent, or friend or in some way in work or in any other activities that you do.
2. Do you enjoy/value that creativity?
3. In the next week, commit yourself to increasing your use of/focus on that aspect of creativity even if only slightly or on one occasion (more is fine too).
4. At the end of the week assess how you feel after having increased your use of/focus on your creativity and decide whether you might want to continue to increase that focus and if so how you can commit to it.
