This last July, I had the opportunity to attend the Scratch Conference at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. On Day 2, Austin Kleon (author and artist) was the keynote speaker. He was amazing. I really enjoyed his delivery and his message that creativity is NOT a noun...something that is a passive and is just there or not. He provides a list of ten things we can all do to become more creative in our lives (both personally and professionally).
Check out this video of his keynote -- then go read his books "Steal Like an Artist" and "Show Your Work".
