Read Rat-Race Escape!

**On Creativity. **
Being creative isn't some luxury that's only available when you've hit your "exit $ number" and can now afford to do it. It's just as natural for humans as walking, eating or thinking. It's what made our species survive!
A typical new member starts a thread on this forum along the lines of "I've read the book, want to quit my job, have a few months of savings. What should I do next 30 days to generate $X because I don't want to be slow lane anymore." Typical, boring and "me, me, me" type of post. Irony here is an entrepreneur is an inventor, a problem solver - a creative human being.
To live like the 1% you can't behave like 99%.
How to become more creative?
- Learn to do things without judgment, similar to how in mediation you observe your thoughts and feelings.
- Stop trying to navigate the forest in pitch black night. Your desire to make changes to your life comes when you are most consumed by emotion, but that's the worst time to do so. Do not make decisions when you are upset or riding a high. Let yourself come back down to neutral first. Then think. Think on a piece of paper.
- Ask yourself better questions. Are you wanting to have better things before becoming a better you? Maybe it's time to change your objectives.
Add to the list folks! What makes you more creative?
