3 Paths Toward A More Creative Life Everyone can learn to be more creative, but to become very creative, I’ve come to believe you need to lead a creative life. In watching my best students, in examining the lives of successful entrepreneurs, and in seeing the process of the great Native American artists who I know, it is clear that how they live their daily lives is crucial to their success. I realize that it sounds very “zen-y” (which is OK by me), yet I come to this realization not through a search for spirituality or clarity but from simple observation. Creativity is in such demand today that when we apply for jobs, when we join organizations, or when we just meet other people, we are asked to present our creative selves. But we can’t do that unless we understand the nature of our own creativity, locate the sources of our originality, and have a language that explains our work. It’s a work in progress, of course, but here are three specific ways that can help you lead a creative life. 1. For good reason. 2. 3.

How Doctors Die By Ken Murray, MD Years ago, Charlie, a highly respected orthopedist and a mentor of mine, found a lump in his stomach. He had a surgeon explore the area, and the diagnosis was pancreatic cancer. This surgeon was one of the best in the country. It’s not a frequent topic of discussion, but doctors die, too. Of course, doctors don’t want to die; they want to live. To administer medical care that makes people suffer is anguishing. How has it come to this—that doctors administer so much care that they wouldn’t want for themselves? To see how patients play a role, imagine a scenario in which someone has lost consciousness and been admitted to an emergency room. The above scenario is a common one. But of course it’s not just patients making these things happen. Some doctors are stronger communicators than others, and some doctors are more adamant, but the pressures they all face are similar. Should I have been more forceful at times? But doctors still don’t over-treat themselves.

A creative advert for condoms. What makes it creative? Left brain vs right brain and creativity Have you ever heard people say that they tend to be more of a right-brain or left-brain thinker? While there is little evidence that a more dominant ‘half brain’ (left or right) determines a person’s personality as shown here, there is good evidence that regions of the right hemisphere have a key role in what is called divergent thinking and the creative problem solving that depends on it.

An example of a divergent thinking question is: Or What is creative inspiration?

30 Challenges for 30 Days Did you know that it takes 30 days to form a new habit? The first few days are similar as to how you would imagine the birth of a new river. Full of enthusiasm it gushes forth, only to be met by strong obstacles. The path is not clear yet, and your surroundings don’t agree. Old habits urge you to stay the same. So, take a moment to reflect on the question ‘Who do I want to be in 5 years?’ Check out this short TED talk first to get inspired: Now pick one or more challenges and stick with them! However, be cautioned, picking too many challenges at the same time can easily result in a failure of all of them. #1 Write a I-Like-This-About-You note/text/email each day for someone (Easy) This is the perfect way to let someone else know you care. #2 Talk to one stranger each day (Hard) This is a great one to cure approaching anxiety. #3 Take one picture each day (Hard) This one gets harder nearing the end of the challenge because at one point you will run out of the easy shots.

Types of Radioactive Decay and Their Effect on the Nucleus Video - Lesson and Example Introduction What images come to mind when you hear the words 'nuclear radiation'? Most likely these words conjure up a graphic scene of three-eyed fish and glowing green ooze. Nuclear Radiation Did you know that less than 1% of all the radiation you are exposed to comes from the nuclear industry? What exactly is radiation, and how damaging is it? Nuclear Notation As you may recall, the two particles that are found in the nucleus are the protons and neutrons. Particles in the nucleus can also be represented by this nuclear notation. Alpha Decay Now let's move on to the most common types of nuclear decay. Alpha particles are relatively heavy and quite slow-moving. Beta Decay Next up is beta decay or beta-minus decay. Gamma Decay Finally, we have gamma decay. Blocking a gamma ray is a lot more difficult. Lesson Summary As I previously mentioned, there is no way to escape radiation completely, and it wouldn't make any sense to walk around in lead clothing.
