Creativity At Work

What sounds more fun? Filling in spreadsheets with data for eight hours or coming up with new and exciting ideas?
I’ll go ahead and assume you went with option two. The opportunity to innovate is something most of us want more of in our daily work lives. Yet often, we feel we can’t be more creative at work because of factors beyond our control. Perhaps your company is risk-averse and likes to play it safe, perhaps your targets are intimidatingly aggressive,

Live A Beautiful Life

Life is short. Live it well. Travel a lot. I hate having my life disrupted by routine. To awaken in a totally strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.
And I get inspirational everyday thanks to the people I meet along the way.
