  1. Hey Harry,
    Its different strokes for different folks. I often activate my creative mode by lying on the bed and looking up the ceiling. From here, great ideas usually flows.
    Another way I become more creative is by reading and practicing new things in different ways.

    Taking a nap to relax the brain and putting into practice any new knowledge readily helps me become more creative!

  2. Hi Harry,
    Being creative begins with passion and consolidates with persistence. It is important that one learns how to be creative in all personal and business endeavors. This will go a long way to authenticate and brand whatever is done.
