Challenging Your Creativity

I had the privilege earlier this year of participating in a very unique performance called ‘Choreography for Blackboards’, which had me drawing (and erasing) whatever came to mind on a standing blackboard for 90 minutes in front of a paying audience. You can read about my experience here: http://www.ps122.org/ivan-martinez-on-why-ps122/.

I think everyone, especially those of us working in sterile financial services environments, should find opportunities to challenge our creativity. Creativity is a muscle that if not exercised, withers. It’s so important as a key differentiator in the marketplace.  When thinking about engaging and advising clients, it’s important to step back and think about whether you are providing the same canned story, or whether you have thought about creating the most innovative solutions. It’s way too easy to fall into routine thinking patterns.
