With the creativity round of the Post2Post Virtual Book Tour coming this way next month, I just had to pass this gem with Seth Godin and his take on curiosity.

In my experience, curiosity is directly tied to the creative process. You have to get out of the lines a little to get your mind off cruise control. Many people who view themselves as uncreative just haven’t gotten out of their safe zones, and so life is well, the same. Boring and uninspiring.

If you want to get creative. Then do something different. Here are some starters to get you moving in the right direction:

  1. Ask questions.
  2. Watch and listen. You’ll be suprised what you’ve been missing.
  3. Read some new blogs on a topics you’ve never explored before.
  4. Volunteer.
  5. Take up a new hobby.
  6. Explore a new category of music on iTunes.
