Wouldn’t it be nice if the creative types of the world could just hole ourselves up, monk-like, in a supportive environment in which to do nothing but create, on our schedule?! However, life requires that we also deal with getting other logistical, and non-creative tasks done, and generally managing our life.
This article from the99percent is a really valuable guide to balancing logistics with creativity. It provides a systematic way to carve out time for your creative projects that require consistent and quality time.
MyModernMet posted an amazing story recently about a photographer who found an incredible way to cheer up his 91-year old grandmother, a holocaust survivor who was struggling with depression and loneliness. Sacha Goldberger shot a series of photos featuring his grandmother Frederika dressed in superhero costume.
Frederika was born in Budapest 20 years before World War II. During the war, at the peril of her own life, she courageously saved the lives of ten people. When asked how, Goldberger told us “she hid the Jewish people she knew, moving them around to different places everyday.” As a survivor of Nazism and Communism, she then immigrated away from Hungary to France, forced by the Communist regime to leave her homeland illegally or face death.
The photos are incredible and since that time, Goldberger reports that his grandmother has not had any more bouts of depression! View the full series at MyModernMet

What tools do you use to inspire your team members? How can businesses better harness and encourage the creativity of their employees?
