Creativity is a walk in the park

Creativity is a walk in the park

By John Jantsch

Loose ParkOne of the required skills of business ownership is creativity. For some, that may mean creative in the artistic sense, but for all it means creative problem solving, creative financing or creative views of what is and what is not.

We all need various forms of creativity to enhance our lives, market our businesses and, in some cases, survive. But, we all get stuck in deep, non-creative ruts from time to time as well. So, how do you get yourself out of that rut and back into a creative point of view.

So, how do you get unstuck?
