It is hard to leave one’s comfort zone sometimes. Liked your blog, Reed. Good info! Kristi Q. http://makingmoneyjob.com
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this post.
Hey Reed,Creativity is a Virtue everyone owns but few know how to bring it to the top, Maybe this great post of yours will help some of them with this problem. I have been called insane before but that was before the results came back. Have a Wonderful Day, timothy Millar “The Leprechaun”

Great advice, Reed. Thank you for sharing. I unleash my creativity every day by writing fiction and reading a lot of ficton and nonfiction on subjects that interest me.

The article is wonderful and thought provocating.
Have a wonderful year ahead.
I decided to re-read Osho’s book “Creativity” this week. In it, he explains why conventional thinking and habits prevent each of us from becoming the full human being that we were created to be.
When we “get out of the way”, or practice being conscious in each moment, we truly come alive. Then, no matter what we are doing, or not doing, we will be fully present. It is amazing what you can see, hear, feel when you are truly “awake!”
This is his definition of creativity…being fully alive in each moment…not thinking habitual thoughts or doing habitual things.
Easier said than done, but well worth the experiment. Meditation is one of the easiest ways to begin this journey.
Have a happy and creative year!
Good stuff, Reed,
For me, I try to write something every day. Whether it’s a blog post, or an ezine article. It definitely gets easier with practice.
I have to commend my mother who, at the age of 78, decided to take up painting and has painted some absolutely stunning landscapes. She had never picked up a brush before. This illustrates another important point — you are never too old to develop your creativity!
To your success!
I like the article. You are right sometimes it is hard to unleash something that has been kept hidden for so long.
I think everyone has some form of creativity in them, they just choose or do not know how to unleash it.
Keep them coming, I really enjoy them
Now that youve explained the good company I am among, I can finnally proudly declare, I’m Mad! 😉
Creativity is the source of freedom. Without it we’d be bound by the limitations of the logic that says, “if it hasn’t already been done, you can’t start doing it now.”
But, wonderfully, we have no such limitations.
Great post, as usual..Be creative…Never ever give up!!
Best Wishes for 2009!!
That is some good stuff… I get a little crazy sometimes, and it does seem to be my most creative times… Now, I know why… I have found a good excuse… Hehehe!!! Look forward to your next…
The attributes of creativity and imagination are probably are the most important virtues in any type of successfull endevor.Einstein once said imagination is more important than attitude.It is imagination that gives us our vibration. The stronger we can image a thing,the stronger will be our vibration thus increasing emotion.In goal setting ,the ability to imagine will effect the end product.
Thanks for the article ,you brought out some things i had not considered ,but obviously agree with — great job -keepem coming

It’s interesting… I’ve always found it easy to produce good content, new products, etc.
HOWEVER: because it comes easily to me I admit that it’s been a while since I’ve really pushed my creative muscle.
With a new year upon us, it may be time for me to get outside of the box and really look at new approaches to try. Thanks for a good article.
Timothy Aaron Whistons last blog post..List Building Made Easy!
“If it’s possible, it’s been done. If it’s impossible, let’s do it.” That was the motto of my mom’s graduating class about 90 years or so ago. I always liked it. It called to something deep within me. It’s calling still!
It goes beyond the positive or possibility thinking stage to an active doing stage. I was told by a college administrator that I’d never graduate from college. I said nothing in response, but my mind said “Oh, really? We’ll see!”
It took seven more years, but I graduated from university AND completed two-and-a-half years of graduate level work.
The ideas and concepts in your post work, Reed, but you have to have the guts to venture out and TRY.
Reed, neat article. I always think the most creative, insane, outrageous and intelligent people have taken up Internet Marketing.. ’tis true. Look at what they come up with – Joe Vitale and miracles coaching. Mark Joyner’s simpleology, Jay Levinson’s guerrilla marketing bombshells, Trafficology – the list goes on.. Tellman Knudsen is a creative moon man. Hey –
Nice post Reed,
Creativity sure brings great contents,
Creativity is what separates the experts from the amateurs,
Being more creative in what you are doing puts you ahead of others in the same field you are in.

Great topic Reed! Creativity is the backbone of Entreprenuership, and many of us are working at being a true entrepreneur, but sadly many will not make it, because they cannot get out of the box they have built around themselves, ie. “Their Comfort Zone”. I find you have to take control of complacency inorder to reach creativity. Think about it……? Try it……? It Works!!
Another great article. As I read your words today, it occured to me that creativity and expression may be part of the answer to another article you wrote on information overload. It’s like you gave me another way to to dig through some of that excess informayion and do something constructive with it.
Boy, nothing’s ever easy is it? Thanks again for your work and i’ll be looking forward to your next addition.
Interesting blog. Creativity is like everything else. Use it or lose it. It improves with use.
Reed, where ever you picked up on this mind set, do not ever loose it. What you are doing inspiring people is a Great deed.
Good blog man never stop learning and someday you’ll get to where you want to be People are afraid to try something new but they shouldn’t be should they
REED YOU ARE AMAZING.I’VE ONLY BEEN READING
YOUR STUFF FOR A SHORT TIME BUT YOU ARE ONE
OF THE BEST.
strong mind resulting strong results!
Ari Lestarionos last blog post..New Year’s Resolution: Best Natural Foods for Longevity
This is a very tlmely and inspirational post
to start the new year and i commend your foresight.I will like to add by advising that nothing good comes easy and you you dont stop till you get enough.
Embracing your creativity is very important. I like your suggestion to try something new. Many people tend to do things the same way day after day so that for much of their lives they are operating on autopilot.
Trying out new things and doing things in different ways can reveal a whole new world to us. And may even lead to the discovery of something incredibly valuable.
Thanks for the post Reed. Carpe Diem!
Ron Passaros last blog post..Why Membership Sites are the Wave of the 21st Century
If you have trouble write about a passion. Write about something you know well or just have a strong opinion about. This works!
By the way this is also a great writers block strategy!
Just a madly creative person stepping out of her comfort zone to say she thought this was an excellent Blog,
Happy New Year!
In order to release this creativity we can use the ABCs. We A:= Ask our selves what is it we want to accomplish. B:= Believe that we can accomplish it. C:= Confess or through a positive confirmation say to ourselves on a consistent basis that we can do it. And most importantly what I get from your article D:= Do.
Do something everyday to accomplish or release the creativity needed to bring it to pass. In all things resolve2 accomplish your goals and dreams by doing whatever it takes no matter how inconvenient it may be making 2009 a most prosperous time.
Remember if you don’t want to be average, find out what average people do and do the opposite.
I’ve been reading your posts for some time without comment, but this one calls to me.
Getting “outside MY box” is a scary thought (I’m a very “structured” individual), but you’ve put it right out there to explain what it takes!
I’ve added a “to do” item for each day’s list, and that is to create and post at least one article. This may be a baby step, but it’s huge for me!
Thanks for the continued inspiration!
I don’t know what to say,I’m an old man trying to be a student. To learn things and be creative. But the time, the time is running so fast, I can’t put or spend the time I need on the things I really want to learn or do.
But thanks Reed Floren for the lesson, from now on I will follow what you said. Because I think that I have a genius inside me that I have to bring to the world.
Good post Reed, as usual. Time passing so quickly and a sense of urgency stifles my creativity. I have so much in my head to write about and just have to get doing it. “Write Is A Verb”, I think that’s the name of the book. Thanks
For me, creativity really came when we bought our two MacBooks. These are simply amazing, and I can warmly recommend buying a Mac if you’re tired of problems with Windows pc’s.
But thanks for good feedback on creativity. Your blog is always well worth the read. 🙂
I really agree with the idea of “exercising your creativity.”
It truly is the way creative people get their juices flowing.
One thing that I do for creativity is I will sit down and come up with 10 biz ideas. I write them down and then weed out later but I do rapid fire product or biz model thinking. It usually gets me hyped for the day and then I’m ready to produce what I need to do.
I think that sometimes people need to get reconnect with their youth. The older people get the more they substitute “experience” for “creativity.” I’ve learned more from failing than succeeding and the first leads to much more of the latter. Get out there and try new things with no expectation of gain. That’s when the magic happens.
Simple formula: Be spontaneous. And get the right plugin. Right web software.
