So often we look at things from such a serious perspective that we restrict our creativity. This exercise welcomes your creativity to flow freely without and without restraint.

“You can’t do things differently until you see things differently” ~author unknown

You will need a pencil, sheet of paper, a paper clip,  and a timer for this activity.

Set the timer for 2 minutes and list as many uses for a paperclip you can think of.

  • Write down all of your ideas-without criticism
  • Go for the quantity not quality of ideas you come up with
  • Be playful, silly, creative and imaginative
  • Switch your perspective form time to time, ask yourself how a child would look at this?
  • Ask yourself what if it were straightened out, cut in half, bigger, heavier, etc.?
  • Relax and have fun with it!

Oh, and be sure to share what you come up with!
