“The time saved through mindful consumption is the time spared for engaging in creative pursuits.”(My mantra since 2015, and I try to find the balance every day) #sketchnote #mindfulness #IdeasDrawn@tnvora

On the Value of Stillness

“Everything that’s created comes out of silence. Your thoughts emerge from the nothingness of silence. Your words come out of this void. Your very essence emerged from emptiness. All creativity requires some stillness.” Wayne Dyer


“Be it alone or with peers, reflection is our professional daydream time; the stillness needed to put the pieces together, to expel the nonsense and make sense of what and why we do what we do – its part of the learning equation” — @britz


“Build pockets of stillness into your life. Meditate. Go for walks. Ride your bike going nowhere in particular. There is a creative purpose to daydreaming, even to boredom.  The best ideas come to us when we stop actively trying to coax the muse into manifesting and let the fragments of experience float around our unconscious mind in order to click into new combinations. Without this essential stage of unconscious processing, the entire flow of the creative process is broken.”

On Skills to Develop, Now

“My list in #PerpetualBeta in no particular order:




novel thinking






passion” — @hjarche

“How do we cultivate the human skills needed in a tech-driven world? Tech everywhere doesn’t mean we can rely on logic alone to make decisions. I would even argue that, the more tech there is, the more human values and skills we need.”
—  Céline Schillinger
“Co-creating in a wide range of forms, processes and purpose may become an effective and important antidote to the spreading enclosure of human creative activity.” @jonhusband
