reflection   I want to use this weekend to pause our daily creative challenge “routine” for some reflection. We will do that from time to time, and as we will soon see, this by itself is an essential part of Habit Zero — of the creative habit. In his latest article, Larry Robertson reminds us of the power of pausing, or more accurately, how essential pausing is in the creative process. No matter what you are engaged in, your mind will benefit from taking a pause and using it for something completely different — something that will create a new experience and will lure your mind to see things differently. This is the ultimate source for creative ideas.

reflection   What I love most about creativity in general and creative exploration with seempli in particular, is that it feeds itself. If you just let it, Creativity creates (or becomes) an infinite positive feedback loop which is not easy to break. It’s like your brain is always one step ahead of your consciousness, paving the way to the next discovery and creation.

the challenge   It’s an open-challenge day in Habit Zero. Look around you throughout the day and capture anything you find interesting. This is a chance to observe with no concrete objective. Just open your mind to what’s around you. And then, use it for reflection later today.

the challenge   I’m out on the street today on a creative exploration assignment. The Seed I will be using is Body-Less. Take this Seed with you and keep observing mindfully. Be ready to be surprised.

A few years ago, which seems as far as another life, I launched a year-long photography project called TLV365. I set a goal to capture and publish one photo a day, and by that to create a collage of an eclectic, surprising, city — a city you can love or hate, but you cannot stay indifferent to. With the number of photos many of you probably capture each day, this might sound like a trivial task. But it was the commitment to do so seven days a week for an entire year that turned this project into a real creative challenge. Add to that the desire to do reasonably good work, and you got yourself a full-time job.

the challenge   Today we are playing with a special Prism designed for revisiting Insights we captured. It is Friday, and I am about to go on a photo walk in this perfect winter day and then revisit the Insights and find a theme that can connect a few of them. If you don’t have a chance to capture seedless Insights during the day, this would be a perfect opportunity to explore your Insight Journal and revisit Insights you have captured in the past months. Let’s see what theme we will end up with.

the challenge   Today we are looking for coincidences. More specifically, we are aiming to find things related to each other in some sense which just happen to be placed together. Ready to explore?

reflection   Yesterday, I concluded my reflection on the Insights I had captured with the following statement: Don’t judge your abstractions by evaluating their validity. Use them to capture creative Insights. If some of these Insights work — use them. And with that cryptic message I promised a follow-up today. So, here’s the thing…

the challenge   Today we are using a ReShape Seed for our creative exploration. Playing with a ReShape Seed is always a nice refresher. It opens a whole new set of possibilities, associations, and with them surprises. You might recall I already played with the same Seed a few weeks ago. When I use the Master Your Creativity channel, Seeds and Prisms are randomly picked from the seempli collection, so there’s always a chance to revisit the same Seed again. And that’s actually an opportunity — an invitation to challenge our imagination and see things from yet another perspective, or giving them a new interpretation.

the challenge   What could be more natural than finding an animal in nature? Well, today we are on an exploration assignment in nature. But, since the Seed we got is really tightly coupled with the playground we are visiting, let’s make things more interesting. Let’s look for things pretending to be animals.
