In the Phillippine Daily Inquirer, John Maxwell wrote a column with five tips for maintaining a creative edge. Here’s one we sometimes forget: Have fun. He quotes Dr Suess: “Adults are obsolete children,” and says, “Unfortunately, growing up has made many people become too structured in their thinking. But it’s that childlike creativity that can make you the top innovator in your field. Continually ask yourself if you still enjoy what you’re doing. When you are truly having fun in your work, creativity flows freely.”
If your writing has turned into only a serious challenge, how can you inject some fun back into it—today?
