Get Lost I

Lidor Wyssocky

Getting lost, literally, is a wonderful way to ignite your creativity. In a sense, any act of creativity is a detour. Any act of creativity relies on our ability to go somewhere unexpected, sometimes physically and sometimes mentally. Getting lost is an essential part of the game. We need to allow ourselves to get lost from time to time and just “let it go.”

Getting lost sounds like a difficult thing to do, but all you really need is to go somewhere you don’t know – a city, a street, or even just a building, and wander around without a clear destination. When you do that, you become automatically curious, and your senses become alert in the best possible way. Use this opportunity to look around you, to observe, and to imagine.
