I'm in need of a little inspiration for a project I'm working on. What direction should I go? Time to reach into the Creative Whack Pack. It's card # 53: "Flex Your Risk Muscle." This is one that always demands some action. It reads:
Bull's-eye every time? If so, you're standing too close to the target. If you're not failing every now and again, it's a sign you're not doing anything very innovative. Everyone has a "risk muscle." You keep it in shape by trying new things. If you don't, it atrophies and you're no longer able to take chances. How can you exercise your risk muscle? What kinds of risk can you take while pursuing your issue? What's the biggest, most sensible risk you can take?
I'm not quite sure how to interpret this, but two ideas come immediately to mind: 1) to call a person I'd been putting off for fear of not getting through or looking stupid; and 2) being a little more adventuresome in my design.
I'm sure I'll think of other interpretations as the day goes by.
