I discovered a blog, 12 Most, that focuses on “Savvy smartitude for busy professionals in easy-to-digest list posts that mean business.”
Yes, it is a mouthful. And yes, it is a website composed of lists, concentrating on business, media and lifestyle. Recent business posts have titles such as 12 Most Memorable Business Quotes from 5 Days in the Blogosphere, 12 Most Practical Tips for Surviving an IRS Audit, and 12 Most Don’t Be a Dumbass Rules for Email.
The one that caught my attention and led me to this blog post, was written by Bruce Sallan (very interesting guy) entitled 12 most loving ways to spark creativity in your child.
Hey, I’m in favor of sparking creativity in everyone, but what a good idea to discuss how to do it with children. As Bruce points out, “It is said that kids are naturally creative. That may be true, but there are many ways to stimulate and encourage creativity in our children.”
As you assuredly expect from the blog’s title, he, (along with two co-authors), then gives 12 examples. Much of the ideas may appear obvious, but the point is to have you think about actually doing them. And, as is pointed out, “it is the simple things that can often stir the emotions and bring out the creative.”
I am not going to repeat any of the ideas that are discussed; I really want you to go to the site yourself. It is a guaranteed thought provoker, filled with good ideas.
And you know how I feel about those.
