"Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way."
- Edward De Bono
In truth, creativity is an incredibly valuable asset to anyone. A good financial adviser needs to be creative. A couple in a long term relationship needs creativity. Lawmakers, IT professionals, farmers, doctors, MOMS....creativity helps everyone make changes, birth new pathways, efficiencies, ideas, and to live more fully and intentionally.

They're not just about encouraging imagination (but that's a big part), but also calming the nervous system, giving you energy and stamina, and opening up your heart to all the possibilities of your life.
