Despite today's technology-obsessed world, you most likely feel more stressed, less focused, and way more forgetful. Your productivity is shot, and you find it hard to think quickly and retain information. You struggle to make up by using MORE technology...more apps...more devices in a desperate attempt to gain more control of your life. But it's NOT working. Not only are we more stressed, we find it harder and harder to focus, think quickly, and retain information.

We have been spoon-fed the notion that creativity is the province of genius - of those favored, brilliant few whose moments of insight arrive in unpredictable flashes of divine inspiration. And if we are not geniuses, we might as well pack it in and give up. Either we have that gift, or we don’t. But Allen Gannett shows that simply isn’t true. Recent research has shown that there is a predictable science behind achieving commercial success in any creative endeavor, from writing a popular novel to starting up a successful company to creating an effective marketing campaign.

The author did a great job walking you through his four rules for creativity, using examples with lots of great metaphors in real life situations. Ben & Jerry's was a great example I would recommend you give this a read or listen to in order to help you on your creative path. Use common sense approach and review this book a few times. Follow your gut on being creative and realized it does not happen on a weekend, creativity happens over a long period of time and a lot of hard work!
