there has to be more to it than this. I have a feeling in the pit of my stomach that I can’t shake.  a feeling that expects more, wants to see more, do more, be more. Is this all that there is, because there’s no fucking way that it can be. I used to think that feeling was love and I’m realizing that its unfair and kind of retarded to associate that feeling with a person either that I have met or haven’t met yet. I feel it more about myself and what I need. I don’t know if i’m making sense. I don’t fuckin care if i’m not. I need more. But how?

1. Allow events to change you. You have to be willing to grow. Growth is different from something that happens to you. You produce it. You live it. The prerequisites for growth: the openness to experience events and the willingness to be changed by them.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
2. Forget about good. Good is a known quantity. Good is what we all agree on. Growth is not necessarily good. Growth is an exploration of unlit recesses that may or may not yield to our research. As long as you stick to good you’ll never have real growth.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
3. Process is more important than outcome. When the outcome drives the process we will only ever go to where we’ve already been. If process drives outcome we may not know where we’re going, but we will know we want to be there.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
4. Imitate. Don’t be shy about it. Try to get as close as you can. You’ll never get all the way, and the separation might be truly remarkable. We have only to look to Richard Hamilton and his version of Marcel Duchamp’s large glass to see how rich, discredited, and underused imitation is as a technique.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
5. Scat. When you forget the words, do what Ella did: make up something else … but not words.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
6. Break it, stretch it, bend it, crush it, crack it, fold it.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
7. Explore the other edge. Great liberty exists when we avoid trying to run with the technological pack. We can’t find the leading edge because it’s trampled underfoot. Try using old-tech equipment made obsolete by an economic cycle but still rich with potential.
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
8. Coffee breaks, cab rides, green rooms. Real growth often happens outside of where we intend it to, in the interstitial spaces — what Dr. Seuss calls “the waiting place.” Hans Ulrich Obrist once organized a science and art conference with all of the infrastructure of a conference — the parties, chats, lunches, airport arrivals — but with no actual conference. Apparently it was hugely successful and spawned many ongoing collaborations

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
9. Remember. Growth is only possible as a product of history. Without memory, innovation is merely novelty. History gives growth a direction. But a memory is never perfect. Every memory is a degraded or composite image of a previous moment or event. That’s what makes us aware of its quality as a past and not a present. It means that every memory is new, a partial construct different from its source, and, as such, a potential for growth itself

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
10. Power to the people. Play can only happen when people feel they have control over their lives. We can’t be free agents if we’re not free.

Engage in Creative Tasks Outside Work to Boost Job Performance

Creative work is not only best for bad moods, but doing creative activities outside of the office can boost your on-the-job performance, says a new study by psychologist Kevin Eschleman of San Francisco State University.

Writing in the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, the researchers say:

Creative pursuits away from work seem to have a direct effect on factors such as creative problem solving and helping others while on the job. It can be rare in research to find that what we do in our personal time is related to our behaviors in the workplace, and not just how we feel.

The creative tasks in the above study weren’t restricted and employees were free to choose whatever they wanted that led to a sense of self-expression and self-discovery. This ranged from writing short stories to playing video games. Hit the link for the full study.
