This has to be one of my all time favorite TED talks. Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray, Love talks about nurturing creativity and success. It’s well worth watching.
One of the things I found most interesting was that this best selling book was written after she took a year off. Hummmm…do you think there might be a connection? I think so. I am a firm believer in the power of down time. Taking time to rest and regroup allows our creative ideas to perk. I know for me it all comes out better when I have plenty of fritter and float time.
