day 01: put on a happy face

Hi ,

Yes! It’s day one of our Creative Starter Kit, and that would be a perfect time to get to know seempli – the game we will use throughout the training.

Do you know the feeling of discovering something new? The sensation of seeing something as if for the first time? Do you remember how it feels to look at something familiar and suddenly see it in an entirely different way? Do you remember what it’s like to look around you with wonder and amazement?

Our journey with seempli is going to be full of discoveries, imagination, and most important: loads of fun!

So, here’s the deal: each day of this starter kit starts with a new challenge based on one or more Seeds and Prisms from the seempli collection. Each activity is an open invitation to look around you and imagine. Try to find something inspired by the Seed: something cool, something funny, something exciting – something you connect to. There’s no right or wrong answer. The only thing that matters is that whatever it is you find will make you feel.

You may ask yourself where I should start looking? The answer is very simple: anywhere. It doesn’t matter if you are at home, on the street, in your car on the way to work (not while driving of course), or at the airport – amazing treasures are waiting to be discovered wherever you are. All you need to do is open your eyes and your mind.

When you find something, capture it in a photo, text, drawing or any other medium and add your Insight to your Insight Journal. As you play with seempli you will gradually collect memories, little treasures, and things you create along the way.

We’ll start off with something simple that will truly change your day. The Smiley Seed.

 
 

Did you know that not only people can smile? Look around you mindfully, and you’ll discover many things that can smile too. Sometimes it will be a subtle smile, but at other times, it will be a big loud one.

Try to find as many smiles as you can throughout the day, capture them, and save them in your Insight Journal (create one in your favorite note-taking app such as Evernote). By the end of the day, you will have a collage of smiles. And if by any chance you are feeling stuck, don’t give up! Continue to look around you. You will see it.

Oh, and don’t forget to smile back 🙂


Boost Your Play

Don't settle with capturing one Insight for each challenge. Play throughout the day, in different times and locations. Capture as many Insights as you can. You will notice that they evolve and bring out something different each time.
