A couple of months ago, I relaunched my website with a new vision for Greens & Blues Co. In addition to vowing to no longer publish theoretical posts, I also was rethinking the type of community I could provide for you.
I’m a people person. I like to talk and I like people. So having a group of people to potentially collaborate with, chat with, etc. about something as important as my creativity is important to me.
I know many of you are the same. Even if you don’t consider yourself a people person or something who usually “joins in” there are many benefits to having a group of people you can turn to when you need it. Despite the fact that you have friends and family, sometimes you need someone who understands this side of you – your creative side!
Anyone who has ever been part of a team, sports or otherwise, can tell you that the best part about being on a team is, of course, your teammates. There is nothing like having teammates to drive you and make you better. The same notion can be applied to a group of people practicing their creativity.
Living a creative life can be different for everyone however we can encourage each other, push each other to go further, to work harder than we would on our own, to try something new, to practice, to do our best – all just by working together. Collaboration can help us take our skills in a particular creative venture to the next level, or to get over ourselves and try something new. Teammates, or just people to collaborate with, challenge us to continually improve our craft.
So what team are you going to join when it comes to your creativity?
Your team could made up of:
- Your friends
- Your co-workers
- Our Facebook group: CREATIVITY + COLLABORATION
A good teammate should be:
- Practicing their own creativity
- Willing to help others practice their own
- Striving to get better
It’s great if you have a group of friends or co-workers and you can get together to support each other’s creativity. But, the truth is, most of us don’t have that. So, what do you do then? Who do you go to for support? For creative inspiration? For motivation? For resources? CREATIVITY + COLLABORATION.
So what action can you take today? Easy. Take one simple step. Join CREATIVITY + COLLABORATION.
