February: Creativity

January flew by and here we are in February for a new theme: Creativity!

What does being creative mean, especially in terms of productivity and planning? I’d say few people would naturally associate the two concepts with each other. Creativity usually makes us think of art: making something, often visual, or maybe in writing or music or dance. Productivity and planning makes you think of work: tasks to get done, projects to complete, people and places and things to keep track of. The right side of the brain and the left side.

For me, though, creativity is the base of my productivity practice, far from a tool to decorate a journal and more an essential way of mind when I plan and work. I can’t be productive without being creative, and vice versa — and that’s the concept I’m focusing on this month.
