Austin Kleon says, “Forget the noun, do the verb.” Amen!

So rather than deciding whether or not you are “A Creative,” use these short, visually-interesting questions from Adobe Create Magazine and its collaborators to look at your creative-genius-self in a fresh way.

If you feel restless or bored, your creative type could give you new ideas about what quiet dream pursuit might feel satisfying today. Maybe it isn’t something thought of as “creative” in a traditional sense, but because it’s created (a verb) by YOU, it will be its own piece of art.


Did you know there's an app?


There is!

Last week I mentioned Austin Kleon’s 15 minutes of bliss, which I bet most of us would agree is a great idea. But you have to make it happen, and it’s very, very easy to let that 15 minutes become 14, then get the picture.

If you want a fun way to defend 15 minutes just for you and 15 minutes to eat your lunch, the Box Lunch Lifestyle web-based app is available for exactly $0. A friendly little fighter keeps track of your time, saves your notes, and cheers you on. You can even earn belts as your daily wins start piling up.

Try it and please don’t be shy with your feedback. I’d love to hear what you think.

Also, it costs exactly $0 to share this app with a friend.
