RSS Creativity – Guest Article for The 99%

Venn diagram - Routines, Systems, Spontaneity

You might like to check out the guest article I’ve just written for online magazine The 99% – RSS Creativity: Routines, Systems, Spontaneity.

If you like Lateral Action, you should enjoy The 99%. Their take on ‘productive creativity’ is nicely aligned with the Lateral Action approach to ‘creativity + productivity’.

The 99% is the think tank of Behance, the company behind the excellent Behance Network, which you may recall we featured in our Top 10 Social Networks for Creative People some time ago.

Anyway I hope you enjoy the article – it’s a summary of my recent thinking about creative work. Let me know what you think in the comments over at The 99%.
