Year of Creativity 2008 – YOC – is a site designed to stimulate creativity.
The first initiative in the YOC project is “Be the Change”, an entertaining and ironic way of expressing our multiple identities through a set of highly original, personalized business cards.
So I went through the selection and handpicked these six cards which I think best represent me and my multiple personalities multifaceted personality. I wonder… do these biz cards feel like they belong to the same person who made this vision board?
If you’re in the mood, visit the site – I am sure you will find a card (or cards) that tickles your fancy. Once you personalize them, they’re in a ready-to-print format so you can also pass them out… you know, if you’re “that guy”.
A couple months ago I was asked an interesting question… “What do I want?” I guess it wasn’t the question that was as “interesting” as my inability to pinpoint the answer. This is where is starts to get deep… but I wont bore you with the self discovery.
Now I can answer the question… phew… and to help me stay focused on those goals, I created my first vision board which is basically a visual representation of the positive things I want out of my life…
This wasn’t my idea… actually, Oprah suggested I do it… well, her and her brainwashing gal pals. They did it as part of this Law of Attraction kick they have been on since the frenzy started surrounding The Secret. For those of you who have been living under a rock…
The Law of Attraction is that our thinking creates and brings to us whatever we think about. It’s as though every time we think a thought, every time we speak a word, the universe is listening and responding to us.
Now, I am not all hippie-dippy but I do believe in karma and energy… and well, they seem pretty similar… so after creating this vision board yesterday, I have put it up on my fridge and now thrown it out into the world wide web (gulp!). Hopefully making this declaration and seeing it every day will remind me of what is important to me and in turn bring it my way. I am pretty confident… but still, wish me luck (to be on the safe-side)!
