Apparently, many of us are not living to our fullest potential. Based on a Gallup poll analysis, people who don’t have the opportunity to spend time building their strengths at work are six times less likely to be engaged in their job.

A Household Cleaning Revolution

Last year, we moved from Boston to Dallas. In my frenzied packing, I frustratingly noticed the many cleaning agents under the sink. We had a spray to “kill germs in the bathroom,” a separate spray for the shower “to prevent mildew,” cleaner to “cut kitchen grease,” another abrasive to scrub the shower, and even disinfectant spray for door knobs.

Four years ago, a good friend of mine proposed that we read The Artist’s Way at Work. She thought that the book might help with our productivity. So, we dedicated four weeks to reading the book and undertaking the practices it recommended. Let me tell you, this book has changed my creativity, my productivity, and my outlook! And, one practice introduced in the book has become my key to unlocking creative productivity.
