A Productive Creative Habit I Shall Admire but Probably Never Do

I loveloveloveThe Creative Habit, a smart, inspiring and helpful book by New York based choregrapher Twyla Tharp, a ferociously driven and creative woman.

One of her tips, my favorite, is to “…create a cardboard box for every project you’re working on. That action concretizes your commitment to it…it ensures a physical reminder that you are working on something.”

From Broadside’s “Would You Rather Be Productive Or Creative?”

Hmmm. Just another brilliant idea that I’ll in all likelihood gush over for the amount of time it takes to type this, then move on with my life and wonder why it’s so chaotic…

    Twyla Tharp seems like such a made up name. I’m thinking anagram… I’m off to see when I can make of it…

    Ah I see now. Clearly her real name is either Thy Lap Wart or Paltry Thaw. Poor lass.

    I do this! Always have. Am just going through them all now! I just use magazine holders from IKea – one for each project/part of my life. I find it funny that E is classed as a project cause he has his own box.
