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 amount 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 a reasonably good work, and you got yourself a full-time job.

the challenge   It’s a perfect sunny day here in Israel, despite the low morning temperature. So, it is a great opportunity to go out on a short hike in nature. I am taking with me the Dr. Seuss Seed, and with this quote on it, surprises are guaranteed!

A new year is starting today. Everyone seems occupied with summaries and predictions, analysis and decisions. It’s a classic time to look ahead, to come up with some New Year’s resolutions. And maybe forget all about them tomorrow. We love such dates — such milestones. We are embracing this opportunity to reflect and direct our life. Or maybe we are glad we can do it one day a year and get it over with. Or we are just doing what everyone else seems to do. A new year is starting today and for many it will be a re-run of the previous one. Unless…

the challenge   Today we are playing with a special challenge. To start with, it is seedless. Here’s the deal: you need to pick an object — something you can actually see in front of you or maybe even pick up — and describe it as if this is the first time you see it. For obvious reasons, I chose… my keyboard. Now, I’m working hard trying to ignore the fact that I am using it, and treat it as a strange, unfamiliar object.

the challenge   It’s free exploration day so anything interesting that catches your eyes is by definition an Insight. But let’s not settle with that. Take some time to look at the Insights you capture in depth and find even more interesting things in each of them.

the challenge   It’s free-style day today at Habit Zero which means we can do whatever we like. Don’t we always? So today I decided not just to look around me for something interesting, but to look at my past Insights and see what I can find, or re-find in them.

the challenge   I am playing with the Owl Seed today, looking for a creative insight around me. It’s raining outside, so my creative exploration is limited to home.

the challenge   Today I decided to play a little more with the Remix Seed and the Colorize Prism. But unlike what I did yesterday, today I decided to write something instead of looking for a visual insight. So, let’s add to this mix another constraint: writing an ultra short story with exactly 50 words — no more and no less. And of course the story should be inspired by the Remix Seed and by the color of the Seed.

the challenge   When I started this open creative journal I “promised” you (and myself) it will not be always glamorous. Well, today is one of those not-so-glamorous days. It’s way too late, and somehow I got to this point without an Insight. Which makes posting a challenge somewhat inappropriate. But wait! All is not lost!

the challenge   Today we will play with one of my all-time favorite Seeds. The My Music Seed. The reason I love this Seed is that it send me to an exploration based on a song I love. And this connection between music, imagination, and how we interpret the world fascinates me. I love music and when it connects to the real world, it is truly magical.
