When I was in grad school, I took a class that was required for everyone in my department, called Creative Visualization. The class met once a week, and each week, we'd play a game, or do an activity together. Easy A, right?

The class was really a series of mental exercises, designed to help us develop our creative abilities so we could switch them on and off, like a light switch. Like athletes who develop training regimes to keep their bodies strong, we were being taught to build our creativity and imagination.

The class came to be known by some of those who took it as Mind Games.

It's Time To Train Your Brain

People often ask me how they can be more creative. I tell them that creativity is something you can learn, like math, or yoga positions. It takes practice. I've been practicing for over 30 years, and I no longer wait for inspiration to appear. It waits for me. That's what happens when you train your brain to allow you to access things like imagination and creativity at will.

Let Me Be Your Trainer

Sign up for my Mind Games mailing list, and every week for the next couple of months, you'll receive an email with a mind game in it. Play each game, by yourself, with a friend, or with a group. They're very flexible that way.

Some of these games will be silly. Some might be familiar. They're all tools that you can use to help build your ability to be creative at will.

Here's the deal: your name is required if you want me to send you emails. I just don't feel comfortable sending this information to anyone who won't tell me who they are. If that doesn't work for you, don't sign up.
