Newsletter for November

“Another word for creativity is courage.” George Prince

Creative is never a word that I have used to describe myself- until now.  I will even caveat that statement by saying I am “discovering” my creativity.  In the past I have seen myself as an analytical thinker- preferring math to writing, always reading to find answers, shying away from any job or project that required me to put myself out there to be judged by others.  The “no wrong answer” phase of my life started disappearing eight years ago, when I had my first child, and seems almost extinct as I write today.  Having kids forced me to start being creative: with questions, answers, playtime, problem solving….all of it.

Now, I am embracing my creative side.  I realize that I was creative enough to bring MyOwnLIttleStory.com to life.  And, I put myself out for the world to judge when I started writing this blog (so far no one has complained or insulted me).  As I become more confident in my creative abilities I am willing to challenge myself in new ways.  I am sure there will be missteps and some embarrassment along the way- but at this point, I am willing to take that risk.

If you have a quiet moment in the next few weeks, get creative and explore the ways that you might expand your abilities.  Take a risk and see what happens.  Ask yourself, “What happens if I succeed?”  Chances are, you will!

Since I first announced the launch of MyOwnLIttleStory.com, the number of users has gone from 0-400 in a little less than six months.  I hope to double the number by the time I reach my one-year anniversary.   As an incentive to get more books in the hands of users I am offering a Buy One Get One Free offer.  From now until November 17th, 2010, any users who order their completed book will get a second copy free!

Visit The Inspired Mom to read about Mama Gourd, Lisa Meehan.  Talk about exploring creativity…this mom creates art out of gourds. Also, I share some tips I learned from reading the book Rework, by Jason Fried and Brian Heinemeier Hansson- a fascinating perspective for anyone who wants to start something: business, blog or whatever. They provide a fresh perspective on business and new ways to look at the world.

  3. 请教一个文献中一句话的理解问题。有这么几句话“the mass outflow increased by a facotr of 6 between two observations separated by 18 months”和“Other stars showed changes in MLR by a facotr of 1.5 or less.”请问这其中的“a facotr of X”该怎么理解?是不是表示新结果是在原有结果前面乘以x而得到?

  4. I precisely had to thank you very much once more. I do not know the things I would have sorted out in the absence of the actual secrets shared by you concerning this industry. It was before a real scary matter in my view, however , spending time with a expert manner you dealt with it forced me to cry for joy. I am happier for this help as well as expect you really know what a powerful job your are getting into instructing people today through the use of your web blog. Probably you have never encountered any of us.
