Pay attention to the conversations of people around you, and notice how often the subject of time comes up:
“I’m fine, just crazy busy . . . ”
“I just don’t know when I can find the time . . . ”
“I can’t really talk now — I’m running late . . . ”
People used to be tied to things like families, communities, rituals, worship, curiosity, and beauty. Now we are tied to schedules, watches, date books, computers, and keeping up with the latest gadgets that start with i. It seems like time is going by faster than ever these days, and we’re all exhaustively trying to find, chase, save, and manage time.
n the 10 years since I launched my website, ArtellaLand.com, I can honestly say I’ve never been as excited about an event as I am about the series that’s happening next week: The Creating Time Mega Event, which celebrates the release of my upcoming book from New World Library, Creating Time: Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life. It runs April 2–20 and will include live webinars, daily email inspiration, dynamic time-shifting games and challenges, a lively interactive community of fellow time-travelers, and so much more.
1. You are creative. The artist is not a special person; each one of us is a special kind of artist. Every one of us is born a creative, spontaneous thinker. The only difference between people who are creative and people who are not is a simple belief. Creative people believe they are creative. People who believe they are not creative, are not. Once you have a particular identity and set of beliefs about yourself, you become interested in seeking out the skills needed to express your identity and beliefs. This is why people who believe they are creative become creative.
