Creativity at Work: The Creative Process

By Kerry Lee Special to the Herald We all do it. Make things. Create things. Could be at work or school, or in the kitchen, or as a fun way to spend time. However, are you paying attention when you are creating, or just creating something because you have a to do list? As I’ve mentioned in this column, I believe anything done with intention turns out differently than if we are not paying attention. This affects not ourselves for but for all of those around us.

Creativity at Work - Intention

Intention. It’s a thought, an idea, an inspiration, a desire that with mindful action can change everything. When we create with intention, whether making soup, planting a garden or writing a business plan, it turns out differently than if we are not paying real attention to the process. And when we access our own internal “knowings” that may not have been accessed before, through our heart, our imagination and intuition, and then express ourselves through our hands and creativity, transformations can occur. Welcome to Creativity at Work. This is my first column in a weekly series on Intentional Creativity and Wellness, and I would like to introduce myself. Four years ago, on January 1st, 2
