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.

For me, it’s nature, or at least a walk in nearby Loose Park. Loose Park is one of Kansas City’s most beautiful parks. The park is home to a lake, picnic areas and a fabulous rose garden. The park was part of a golf course in the 1920s and the gentle rolling terrain is easily identified as such.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve felt like I couldn’t write another word on this blog and then gone out and done a lap around the park only to find myself, once again, chomping at the bit to write.

Having a surefire way to get unstuck is a necessary small business skill.

So, how do you get unstuck?
