Inspiration Card Set


52 exercises to stimulate creativity, playfulness and innovative thinking

Whatever our job title, our work will always benefit from new ideas and fresh ways of thinking. We’re used to regarding inspiration as something that arrives more or less at random; it is in fact a skill that we can learn to develop in ourselves and call on whenever we need it.

Inspiration gives us a toolkit for generating new ideas. Here are 52 exercises designed to foster an inventive frame of mind. We don’t need to wait for inspiration to strike! With this set, we can kindle inspiration when we need it. Each exercise prompts us to work on a particular creative muscle and helps us to establish the psychological conditions for original work. Drawing insights from the worlds of art, music, psychotherapy, and innovation, this is an invaluable (and playful) resource for creatives and professionals alike, helping our minds to become more reliable, lightning rods to stoke flashes of inspiration.
