Fast Thinking: Using Creativity to Overcome Hard Times

on August 2, 2008

Artie Isaac gave a fabulous speech entitled: Fast Thinking: Using Creativity to Overcome Hard Times at the Columbia Metropolitan Club . There were many great points, but two of them which I walked away with were:

1. Ask yourself what distracts you? Distractions teach us nothing of ourselves. I find this to be so appropriate after I spent an afternoon looking at the IPhone and asking myself, Did I really need a $200 phone that would give me MORE access to the internet? I own a laptop, never do IM, and leave my current cell phone in the car where I usually forget to check to see if I have messages. The answer on the Iphone was too much distraction for this writer!

2. In Arabic, Abracadabra means “With my words I do create.” As a writer, I loved this!
