Fifteen Minute Fridays episode #31 with Nina Meehan. Are you brimming with potential creativity, yet find it stifled by a lingering belief that you're not creative? This self-imposed limitation can often hinder our exploration of fresh ideas and innovative solutions. By challenging these restrictive beliefs and embracing the boundless landscape of ideas, we can enhance our creative prowess. One powerful way to augment creativity is through divergent thinking. This concept revolves around generating a multitude of ideas or solutions for a single problem rather than settling for just one. Embracing divergent thinking illuminates a path scattered with possibilities and options, shifting our focus from problems to potential solutions. Regular practice of divergent thinking can cultivate a more creative and open-minded approach to problem-solving. Join host Ben Albert in a riveting conversation with Nina Meehan, a renowned global creativity & innovation expert. Nina shares her journey into creative thinking and offers strategies to bolster creativity, leading us to think beyond the ordinary. Dive into the episode for a fresh perspective on creativity!

"Weaponizing my feelings of bitterness, anger, and resentment became an attack on myself. As I harbored grudges, my focus became fixated on the past, reliving the hurtful events over and over again. This mental and emotional burden restricted my ability to think clearly. Grudges kept me trapped in a cycle of negativity, draining my joy and hindering my ability to embrace the abundant life Christ has promised. My capacity to create and receive abundance was smothered by the weight of my weapon. Essentially, holding onto grudges hindered my spiritual growth and stifled my creativity."Leave a comment for Lucretia: https://incourage.me/?p=233275--Imagine being part of a faith-based company where you can create your own schedule, share beautiful inspirational products, earn unlimited income, and belong to a sisterhood of women like you!

Barnes (Foster School of Business) as they discuss how sleep could affect different aspects of our life and being a PM. Lack of sleep impairs cognitive functions such as decision-making, problem-solving, and creativity, which are vital skills for PMs. Sleep-deprived individuals may struggle to focus and prioritize tasks effectively, leading to poor decision-making and decreased productivity. Additionally, sleep deprivation can negatively affect communication and collaboration skills, as fatigue can hinder effective teamwork and stakeholder management. Overall, sleep deprivation undermines the ability of PMs to perform their roles efficiently and effectively, ultimately impacting the success of their projects and teams.

“When microdosing, I notice a lot of differences in my energy level, motivation and focus, but most importantly, I really feel it brings more color to my life. I think more creatively and easily make connections. This leads me to experiment more, in different areas of my life. For instance, when I was doing music photography, I would be more open to different techniques, do double exposures, and use the light differently. I just feel I have more ideas, more fluidity in my creative processes and don't overthink things as much. I just go for it.” - Susana, a photographer and visual artist from Amsterdam Blog Link: https://microdosinginstitute.com/inner-work/microdosing-and-creativity/ --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/donavon-riley/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/donavon-riley/support
From the conversation that I had with Darlene Hope, who is an actress, I have some takeaways I wanted to share. First, it's all about your staying power. Being in the arts, especially as an actor is a marathon. Developing the skills and coping mechanisms you need to run the marathon is essential. Second, when running this marathon, allow life to guide you, stay flexible, and ask yourself if this step supports the next one I want to take. Third, there are levels to this thing. Don't be afraid to start at the ground level in a new artistic medium or career choice. As a classically trained actress, Darlene Hope's professional acting career has included leading and supporting roles Off Broadway and in regional theaters around the country, solo jazz vocal performances, commercial, film and television appearances, and voice-over campaigns. Miss Hope has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with and being directed & music directed by many of the most notable performers working today, including many Tony Award nominees and winners. Miss Hope has appeared in numerous award-winning commercial, print and new media campaigns. Perhaps the best known of these is her performance as the title character in A Visit From Aunt Flo, a viral video that has received nearly 3 million views worldwide on YouTube, Facebook, Youku, etc, and was officially recognized at the Cannes Lion Festival of Creativity. In the last year, she has worked on and performed in 5 world premiere & regional premiere plays and musicals, a revival classic American play, and Guest Starred on the network television series The Blacklist and Blue Bloods. Not to mention numerous staged readings, developmental labs, teaching artist residencies, workshops, and media interviews. Most recently, Darlene Hope has launched HopeFull Productions, a creative launching pad of diverse and inclusive content for Film, New Media, Theatre, Music, and Publication.

Today I am joined by one of our very talented team members, Rebecca Papas from the BuildHer Collective. Rebecca heads up our interior design department and I'm so excited to have her on to talk about how we can maximise interior design in our developments - even in the projects that don't have a huge budget. Rebecca studied interior design and received a diploma before going on to study architecture. She is passionate about spatial design and how we use spaces to build emotions in our clients. She is an absolute goldmine of useful knowledge and she's here to share her gold nuggets with you! We know at the end of the day, the developer still needs to make money because they have their own family to feed, bills to play and has a lot on the line but if we take more time to consider what would be ideal for the end user and know how to use spaces more effectively, we can create homes where people will love living for many years. The BuildHer Collective includes interior design and we tend to target it for investors including townhouses or developments. We really aim to increase that basic level of thought that goes into the stock standard home to increase their value, livability and enjoyment for the people living in it. We'll explore the consideration that needs to go into designing the space, the psychology behind the scenes, designing for emotions, common pitfalls of developers not keeping the end user in the design, and creating an incredible experience without increasing your budget too high. If you consider the overall design and livability in your own plans, you can create a unique home that incorporates the personality of the people living in it and they'll love it for years and years to come.

Todays guest is Ozan Varol. Ozan is a native of Turkey and moved to the US to study astrophysics when he was 17. He started out as a rocket scientist and later became a law professor. In our interview, he reflects on how there were so many moments where on paper everything looked great, but intuitively there was something deep down in his gut that felt very wrong. He couldn't rationally explain the feeling…but he knew he needed to make some changes in his life. And he did. His mission now is to help others reimagine the conventional wisdom that led them to decisions that govern their lives…but no longer need to. I like when he says “is your safety net really a straight jacket?” His book is called Awaken your Genius. Escape Conformity, Ignite Creativity and Become Extraordinary. Genius, to him, means being who you were meant to be; not what others expect. Unlock your originality and unleash your unique talents to discover your true nature. I think you'll find his perspectives super interesting, and a great reminder of what it takes to be truly who we're meant to be. This episode has some great insights on how to stop conforming to what others expect, how to discover who we truly are, how to stop feeling like you're sleepwalking through life, how to get unstuck and ignite creativity.

Your Stories Don’t Define You, How You Tell Them Will
283 Cultivating Your Ideal Environment Creativity and problem solving often go hand in hand usually in very unexpected ways, however when given the chance to bend and try things in new and unexpected ways without judging yourself or your abilities you may just find that these two vital skills can shape your strength and identity going forward. In today's episode Sarah Elkins and Dr. Cyndi Burnett discuss the importance of creativity and education and how these two things can shape our identities and images of authenticity going forward. Highlights Sometimes you need to do things differently than you normally would in order to connect with your audience. You have to work with people who are different from you, you do not want to be stuck in an echochamber. Everyone is creative in their own way. Quotes “That's what teaching is, it's all problem solving. So if you think about creativity as problem solving and not just arts and crafts and who has a nice door, then you'll understand that all of you in this classroom are creative, otherwise you wouldn't survive as a teacher.” “Sometimes it's hard to stop and say; okay hey we made it through this week, let's celebrate that! Just finding those small things that we can celebrate in both our personal and professional lives can really help with the overall wellbeing that we're moving forward through something.” “I give them a baby plant with a letter that says; This plant represents your wellbeing. If you can't keep it alive you're not doing something for yourself. And so if it dies you need to really stop and reflect on what you're doing wrong that you can't even keep this plant alive, ‘cause it only takes a little bit of watering once a week. If you can't do that you're not taking care of yourself.” Dear Listeners it is now your turn, What if you took this challenge from Cyndi and the next time you found yourself judging yourself for something you do or don't do or something you're afraid to do or something you have an idea about and you “Should” all over yourself about, I should be happy, or I should be okay with this without implementing this new idea I have. The next time you do that, really question where that came from and just as importantly, if not more importantly, find somebody who will support your idea or who will challenge you to think about your idea and how you can actually implement it. Find the people in your life, your community, that when you say “I have this crazy idea,” they say, “Awesome, how can I help?” And, as always, thank you for listening. About Cyndi Dr. Cyndi Burnett is the Director of Possibilities for Creativity and Education, and the co-founder of the Creative Thinking Network for Educators. Her mission is to empower educators to infuse creative thinking into the classroom. She taught deliberate creativity and creative problem solving for 20 years at the Center for Applied Imagination at SUNY Buffalo State University. She is also the co-host of the Fueling Creativity in Education podcast. Connect with Cyndi on her LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook! Be sure to check out her podcast Fueling Creativity in Education! As well as her websites Creativity and Education, and Creative Thinking Network! About Sarah "Uncovering the right stories for the right audiences so executives, leaders, public speakers, and job seekers can clearly and actively demonstrate their character, values, and vision." In my work with coaching clients, I guide people to improve their communication using storytelling as the foundation of our work together. What I've realized over years of coaching and podcasting is that the majority of people don't realize the impact of the stories they share - on their internal messages, and on the people they're sharing them with. My work with leaders and people who aspire to be leaders follows a similar path to the interviews on my podcast, uncovering pivotal moments in their lives and learning how to share them to connect more authentically with others, to make their presentations and speaking more engaging, to reveal patterns that have kept them stuck or moved them forward, and to improve their relationships at work and at home. The audiobook, Your Stories Don't Define You, How You Tell Them Will is now available! Included with your purchase are two bonus tracks, songs recorded by Sarah's band, Spare Change, in her living room in Montana. Be sure to check out the Job Interview Storytelling Course as well to make sure you nail that next interview!

Get ready to shift your perspective and embrace the extraordinary with Jay Fantom. Why should I listen to you? It is good. I can be an exciting person. If someone is interested in me, I ask deep and meaningful questions at the beginning of the conversation. I may look for an overview as I don't know you. I asked a random question from a person I met on a train. Do you have regrets in life? You have a huge curiosity and the desire to go past the norm of the discomfort of talking to a stranger. Have you ever broken that rule? How was that nature neatly built? When I was a kid, I always used to raise questions from the elders regarding what I was curious. Sometimes they got annoyed thinking about why this kid asked such questions. However, out of curiosity, I have done so many risky things by myself to quench my curiosity. Because of that, my mother advised me there is no necessity to talk to strangers, and there is possible danger. But I did not end up there, and some people enabled me to ask many questions about people they trusted and respected the most. The love for the people, their stories, and the books have always been with me. They helped me foster a child's genuine curiosity and the ability to ask questions. What was your journey on the point to desire to help the people, and what prompted this direction of profession where you serve people? I never thought I would be doing what I am doing today. I wanted to be a filmmaker, and my career path had been filmmaking since childhood. I wanted to be the next Steven Spielberg. Everything I talked was revolving around films and film direction. I found fine scripts and turned them into movies with meaningful messages. However, a part of me wanted to help the world, to make others understand the different values I grew up with through the essence of storytelling. However, my life did not end as I wanted it to happen. Now, I am on a completely different pathway doing different jobs, such as looking after kids and helping disabled people. Therefore there was a gigantic block on the way to my film direction career. What was the moment that kind of unfolded here? It was me in 2019 being broken to the point of getting my hands on my knees and feeling like I could no longer go and live anymore. There was an attempt to end my life in June of 2019. I also talked about this in the book “God Intervened,” in that instance, he saved me from taking my life. He put me in the best possible path. When I was knocked down, there were so many moments I was beaten down and didn't know what I was doing then. However, now I continue to move forward. Earlier, I never got excited when a challenge came my way. Now I get eager to learn through the challenges and know their importance in improving my growth and strength. Through challenges, you learn so much about yourself. The choice is in our hands. Most people decide to be stuck and stay in pain out of fear. How I survived and overcame when I lost what I valued the most in 2019 is encouraging me progressively up to now. You had a complete storm in your life. You decided to move positively as an intentional act at some point, right? I had been in misery for months under depression, attempting suicide, and abusing my job. It was time for me to leave the job and seek another. During my job interview with the CEO of a large company, he asked me only one question, “Why do you want to work here,” and my response was, “I just wanna help people.” During the return journey, I thought about how to help people and my life is not on the right track. Then I wanted to change my life in a proper direction. Long after that, he helped me find myself and my purpose: to live and live this life in the best way I can to distinguish between I am Vs. I do. A lot of people get confused about these two. Who you are has nothing to do with what you do, as they are entirely different situations. Who you are reflects your character, beliefs, and values, and these characteristics affect your actions. All those times, I had been missing who I am. How did you become “I am” when knowing the things you have to do aren't what you typically do? Earlier, everything I did was revolving around filmmaking. Every job taught me a unique lesson about people and life. After deciding to be who I am, I understood that anyone can change whenever they want. After figuring out my values and beliefs, I wanted to consider new ways and career paths that mostly align with myself. As we get older and do more things, we get tired and forget after a while that we are supposed to see everything and that life is full of fillings. I won't be able to see the bigger picture. Then you don't want to go and change into who you are. What do you think? Some people may already know who they are. So anyone can change their career. Creativity can create more options if you know who you are and what you want to do. Don't be subjected to blinded by just one thing. What about finding outside sources such as mentors and coaches who had done this before to feed us inside? Reading books can be helpful, and how do you fit in there? My second book, “The Path of an Eagle,” is for people who feel stuck and can't move forward. Seeing someone else who has been through a similar struggle and then moved forward successfully inspires others as a positive example. First, look at the macro and then the micro without complicating the situation. If you ask, “What is stopping me from doing what was effective for someone,” the answer should be, “If he can do it, then I can do it too.” Earlier, I also didn't believe my book would be published. However, I could post the book after going through the necessary steps. After reading this book, what will I have in my knowledge? I hope you understand your worth, identity and how you see challenges from different perspectives. I had gone through a lot of suffering in my life. Therefore, I want others to learn something from this book, see the challenges, and become stronger. I assume “The Path to the Eagle” is a unique healing path for the ones who want to raise like eagles. Publishing a person's story that has not been publicly shared may help others struggling. The sense of community, bonding, and belonging is our story. What's your next stage in serving humanity? I'm working on another book at the moment, and it's regarding unboxing stories. It will help people to unbox their own stories. Some people may think their story has no value, but I'm here to show them each level has value and help them share it. Where can people get access to the podcast or the book? They can reach through any podcast platform or check out the book on Amazon and The Story Box podcast.com website. What promise did god make to the world when he created you? That is a good question. Here lies a persistent, courageous authentic storyteller who gave his all and lived for Christ. Key Quotes “Be alive and live this life in the best way possible to distinguish between I am vs. I do.” “Through challenges, you learn a lot about yourself.” How to connect with Jay Fantom Instagram- https://www.instagram.com/iamjayfantom/ Linkedin - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jay-fantom-91a6b96b/ Website - https://thestoryboxpodcast.com/

One essential trait that differentiates us from animals is creativity—you could say it's what makes us human. Today's podcast guest believes creativity not only cultivates connection, better health, and critical thinking but can also “help humanity save itself.” In today's episode, host and NOT REAL ART founder Scott “Sourdough” Power introduces 2022 NOT REAL ART grant winner Ellamaria Foley-Ray, a visionary artist who combines ceramics, literature, anthropology, and quilt-making to magical effect. The annual grant, established in 2019, provides financial backing and creative support to working artists across the US who challenge the meaning of “real art.”“[The phrase] ‘not real art' has Western, colonial, oppressive tones that define some creatives as legitimate art-makers and the rest of us as imposters who fail at making ‘real art,'” says Ellamaria, whose work explores African culture across the continent and throughout the diaspora. Treating clay like cloth, the professor of African American studies and visual anthropology creates ceramic quilt sculptures that chronicle the rich history of African art, expression, and storytelling the world over. “When I carefully listen to my internal ancestral voices and consider ways to bring clay to cloth, I'm no longer interested in making ‘real art,' but in creating ceramic quilts that touch viewers from the inside out,” she continues. As both a visual artist and anthropologist, Ellamaria strives to educate viewers on the complex cultural aesthetic of Africans across the globe in the 21st century. The Denver artist incorporates quilting into her practice “as a way to talk to ancestral women,” who were considered keepers of the domestic craft. Instead of traditional cloth, Ellamaria sculpts with clay because it speaks to her soul: “I am using clay because that is how I write the narratives I tell,” she says.Viewing artmaking as a “portal to healing,” Ellamaria encourages adults to “come home” to their creativity: “Life is calling us to come back to that space where we are creating beauty, to come home to who we are as poets, novelists, playwrights, dancers, comedians, sculptors, and painters,” she says before adding, “Life is calling us to do this in an attempt to help humanity save itself.” Tune into today's episode on the player below to hear our conversation with NOT REAL ART grant winner Ellamaria Foley-Ray.In Today's EpisodeEllamaria Foley-Ray discusses…Winning the NOT REAL ART grant and her subsequent plans for the awardHer current body of work, which is inspired by civil rights leader Rachel Noel and writer Octavia ButlerThe power of ancestry, storytelling, and creativity for healingHow her deep emotional connection to clay beganHow she balances teaching with studio timeWhy the pandemic brought so many people back to their creativityHer advice for staying healthy, safe, and curiousHow art and fiction offer opportunities to solve social justice problemsThe ceramic quilt she wants to make nextFor more information, please visit http://notrealart.com/ellamaria-foley-ray

Does the world really need this? This is one of the inevitable existential dilemmas of creative work. You have to decide that your work is worth your time and energy, because no one is asking you for it. Today's guest, Jessica Abel, is someone whose work I have long admired for its richness and depth. In this conversation, we talk about navigating the “Dark Forests” of creativity; go behind-the-business when one of her most successful books, Out on the Wire, was taking off; the causes behind cyclical burnout; three revenue-generating paths that she's seen work best; and calculating your enough number as a small business owner. More About Jessica: Jessica is an author and indie cartoonist-turned-creative business strategist (founder of Autonomous Creative) who has published a number of comics and prose books, including Growing Gills: How to Find Creative Focus When You're Drowning in Your Daily Life and Out on the Wire: The Storytelling Secrets of the New Masters of Radio. She also hosts the Out on the Wire and The Autonomous Creative podcasts.

The Messy Studio with Rebecca Crowell
Intuition and spontaneity are important to many artists. But what about randomness? While these words are related in superficial ways, they have very different meanings in the context of art practice. Intuition and spontaneity play positive roles. Intuition can be a powerful guide and a source of new ideas, and spontaneity leads to energy and excitement. Randomness, on the other hand, tends to lead you off track and reduce the meaning and impact of your work. Intuition and spontaneity have somewhat different meanings although they are very closely related. Intuition means inner knowing or understanding, a sense of rightness. It may evolve slowly and grow over time based on practice and experience and can stand up to analysis and questioning. Spontaneity means being in the present moment, playing, and acting with freedom and energy. It is reactive to the situation and not something to question or analyze. How do these approaches differ from randomness? Although all three are alike in not being planned, random responses are characterized as being without purpose and based in chance. They have no specific source, while intuition and spontaneity both arise from your core creative self and push you forward in inspiring ways. It can be very helpful to recognize your own use of these three approaches. Learning to recognize randomness and avoiding it can help keep you on track with developing meaning in your work, while cultivating intuition and spontaneity can provide valuable insight and energy. These distinctions can be hard to identify in the moment but in observing your work over time you can more easily see their impact. Thanks to everyone who has been sharing the show and donating!
