Creativity - Does it smell funny?

Stop reading those books. . . and well whatever you might do to inspire creativity.

Today Adrants points us to Creativity in a bottle. There ya go guys. It's been done. A witch has come up with a potion to infuse creativity. umm... ironically it's creative. But... practicle hmm???.... I guess we'll one day have to find out.

I wonder what creativity smells like? (It looks like urine to me)

Again, I don't surf the blogs as much as I used to, but here is a link I have to bring you to. FCNow contributer Doug Sundheim's post The Gift of Risk.

QUESTION: When in life did you feel most alive?
ANSWER: When you step outside your comfort zone.

When you took a risk, when you pushed yourself only to find out that the end result was in itself very rewarding.

When you:

...made that Self-Introduction that led to a potential prospect, ...asked that girl out you're fond of and she said, "yes", ...went to the bank and inquired about that business loan for your start-up. Actually took that "Road-Trip" you've been wanting to do for sometime now.

Doug Sundheim points you to the fact that it's not what you achieved through risking, he takes it one trancendant step further to what you actually BECOME:

The gift of risk-taking doesn't lie in what you achieve by risking - it lies in who you become as a result of the process. Confident. Engaged. Alive. Furthermore, it isn't something you do once in a while - it's an approach to life. Open. Exploratory. Daring. You know it when you let it slip out of your life. You feel stagnant, lethargic, bored. Risks have no shelf life - yesterday's risks are today's ego trip. Today is new. RE ENGAGE. RE-RISK.

Friends... The Business Finale

One of these days, I think I'd love to hit it off in my own business . . . for some reason, I have this notion that I'll probably go into some endeavor with one of my buddies, or heck even better, my best buddy, my brother Joe. Well, . . . unfortunately I've heard horror stories from familes who can't get along, (brothers - no less). And here is another story from the Crypt of Business Crashes - PubSub. It's a story of "friends" from Forbes. Check it out. I do try to be positive about this sort of thing usually.

Nonsense, No More!

Hello everyone, you might be asking yourself why I chose a new blog to create. Well first of all, I can't access my old blog, at least to make updates. You might remember it, it was incorrectly spelled NONSENCE Glenn's Blog, so if you wan't a little background to what I am here ya go . . . To be honest with you, I really don't get on here enough. I don't record what I think enough. But I really think we all should. Thanks to the world of BLOGGING we can all become some sort of expert on something or at least let people know what we think . . (Is it some sort of complex?.....maybe)

I decided to call this blog WHAT IF IT IS? because that question provides some sort of realization that there's hope. That It can be done, that IT can happen, that IT could exist. Out of context IT's open to alot of interpretation... and you know what? That's great. I hope there is, I WANT your mind to wonder past the horizon. Anyway . . I was inspired by my favorite show ever. IT's sad, but I'm obsessed - Six Feet Under.

In the 'Season Finale' of Season 4, one of the characters (David) is troubled and is really hurting, his deceased father (Nate Sr.) returns to him in sort of a reflective moment (This is a re-occuring theme w/in the series) and the following dialogue takes place . . .

Nate Sr.: You hang on to your pain like it means something. Like it's worth something.Well, let me tell you - it's not worth shit. Let it go!{Looks Up to the Sky} Infinite possibilities, and all he can do is whine.

David: Well, what am I supposed to do?

Nate Sr.: What do you think? You can do *anything* you lucky bastard - you're alive! What's a little pain compared to that?

David: It can't be that simple.

Nate Sr.: What if IT is?

And there IT is . . . . Feel free to comment on anything I write about... intellectual or What Not! What Not is probably "Funner" though . .
