ACTIONABLE CREATIVITY BY JACOB HAMMERLE
I would like to start off with a quote I saw on a poster in McDonald’s,
“Hard work without talent is sad, but talent without hard work is a tragedy”.
You often find that qualities isolated by themselves that seem so crucial, actually become obsolete.
For example, creativity is important.
Everyone has the capacity to be creative, but that is only a small portion of the battle.
Creativity needs to be paired with action. If these two pieces are not married, creativity becomes completely irrelevant. You’ll be single forever.
The act of intending to do something is usually regarded light-heartedly. In order to merge both creativity and action, however, you need to take your intentions seriously.
If you intend to do something, do it. Successfully completing intention after intention will lead to the accomplishment of larger goals.
Even the most simple intentions met with action are important. Making your bed every morning is a perfect intention to start with. Nobody is there to enforce the making of your bed, so it is a good test of personal accountability.
Your true character shines through when nobody is around.
Accomplishing the small intentions will fuel your desire to tackle the bigger intentions for the day.
Did you make your bed today?
