Get in Shape with creomondi

Lidor Wyssocky

Creativity is built on a set of skills already wired in our brains. We call these skills: The Creativity Operating System. To realize our creative potential, Creativity must be practiced daily, and there's no better way to do that than playfully.

The creomondi Play is your Creativity Gym on the go. Use it for daily creative exercise, just like you would when it comes to maintaining physical fitness.

There is no particular setup for this Play. Each set might require a different setup or pre-requisite, though.

Most of the combinations can be played on your dead-time, while waiting in line, commuting, having a coffee-break, and any other time not dedicated to your main tasks. Some sets will require dedicated, planned time.

Plan your day with some space for such activities. You will soon find that these creative breaks have a positive impact on your motivation, engagement, and mood.

Playmates

This Play is designed for both solo and group play as the vast majority of combinations can be played in both modes.

Time

Depends on the set. Most sets can be played at any time and are flexible in terms of the time needed for play.

Having said that, this Play is designed to be played throughout the day, whenever you can. So feel free to revisit the set and play as much as possible.

Location

Depends on the set. Most sets can be adapted to be played with wherever you are.

let's play!


Step 1

Pick a random creomondi set

Pick a set that includes a Playground, 1-2 Seeds, an Insight Type, and optionally a Constraint.

Some combinations might seem more challenging. Don't look for an easy one! Use the first set you get. Remember that the results of each challenge are not important — the journey is.

We recommend picking a set early in the morning to have time to plan when and where to play.

Step 2

Plan when and where to play

Plan the time and place to play based on your agenda.

Most sets can be played on your dead-times and don't require any preparations, setup, or specific location. Others might require a particular place to play in or a dedicated time slot. That is why it is essential to examine your agenda for the day and see what would be a good time to play.

If possible, plan to play with the same set several times during the day (or with different ones — seempli Pro members can generate a new set every 5 minutes). Each time, you will gain new Insights and will look at things from different perspectives.

If you can, plan the playing time between challenging tasks that consume a lot of brain-power. Taking some time off doing something creative but unrelated to your primary tasks is an excellent opportunity to recharge your creative energy.

Step 3

Play and Create Insights

When playing with the creomondi set, there are two essential things to remember. First, playing is more important than the result. Whether you are being asked to write, draw, or create a sculpture, the point is not to create an award-winning artwork. The essential part of any play is being engaged in it — trying to do something you are not used to or seeing things in a way you are not accustomed to. Whatever the result is, if you feel you've made an effort — you have achieved the goal.

Second, make sure to record it in your Insight Journal whatever you create while playing. We use the term Insight for any creative outcome. Also, you might want to capture your thoughts on the experience of playing.

Looking back on your Insights and thoughts is vital in any self-development process. We will also use these Insights as part of other Plays.

notes


What is an Insight?

We use the term Insight for any output of creative flow. An Insight can be something new you saw, a new perspective on something familiar, an idea, a text, a sculpture, a video… really, anything.

When you pick a creomondi set, try to aim for the Insight Type generated with it. But this is just the starting point. You can think of new Insight types. You can take any set to places we didn't imagine. The game is truly limitless.

Of course, an Insight can also be the result of reflection on what you experienced in your creative flow. Reflection is an essential part of any creative activity and a vital tool for strengthening our skills and abilities.
