Creative C-O-R-E

A couple of years ago, someone sent me the following. The original author is Jordan Ayan, whom I know nothing at all about, but I want to give credit where it is due. I printed this off and taped it up at my cubicle where I was teaching. Not sure there is a place for it in the new workplace, but I'll put it here where I can reference it from time to time.

Maintain your Creative C-O-R-E:

Curiosity:
You must have a burning desire to know about the world and everything in it. Your curiosity drives you to wonder if something in your life can be done differently, or improved.

Openness to People and Ideas:
You must be willing to accept people and ideas that differ from your own background. Your openness allows you to explore new paths and diverse opinions, which lead to new ideas.

Risk Tolerance:
You must walk through life unafraid to take a risk now and then. Your ability to tolerate risk may put you on the edge once in a while, but that's where the newest ideas and biggest payoffs are.

Energy:
You must maintain a boundless energy for life, for helping others, and for making yourself a better thinker. Your energy keeps your mind constantly moving and thinking.

Use your Creative C-O-R-E. Take time everyday to explore. Do something different, talk to someone with a different perspective. Ask questions. Remember – your creativity and innovation is important.
