Starbucks & Victoria’s Secret.
my nephew is in NYC for 9 days. primarily shooting street and looks like he’s getting some great stuff. check it out.
I should also say this kid took some of his money he got for finishing school, bought a plane ticket, flew there alone, is staying in hostels with barely enough money to eat just so he can experience new york and take pictures.. that’s worth a signal boost for moxie? right?
Conventional wisdom holds that the best way to boost a team’s creativity is to unshackle them from constraints. … Unfortunately this approach can actually be counter-productive.
Constraints have a Goldilocks quality: too many and you will indeed suffocate in stale thinking, too few and you risk a rambling vision quest. The key to spurring creativity isn’t the removal of all constraints. Ideally you should impose only those constraints (beyond the truly non-negotiable ones) that move you toward clarity of purpose.
Background noise creates a distraction, but balance is key. A moderate level of background noise creates just enough distraction to break people out of their patterns of thinking and nudge them to let their imagination wander, while still keeping them from losing their focus on the project all together. This distracted focus helps enhance your creativity. The study’s authors explain that “getting into a relatively noisy environment may trigger the brain to think abstractly, and thus generate creative ideas.
—Research suggests the right amount of ambient noise increases creativity – which makes sense, considering the unconscious processing phase of ideation. (via explore-blog)

I wonder what things would be like if before every word or action we were taught to ask ourselves: is this love-based?
