3.0 von 5 Sternen Eine gute Idee, mehr aber auch nicht 2. November 2011
Von ViveMaria
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Nach den anfänglichen banalen 6 Kapiteln, überraschte mich das Buch doch positiv. Todd Henry beschreibt in "The Accidental Creative" im Grunde eine Methode mit der man Kreativität fördert und bewusst Inspiration aus sich selbst schöpft. Besonders gefällt mir der Ansatz, dass die Inspiration aus uns selbst heraus kommt.
In Ergänzung zum Konzept der "notwendigen" Langeweile welches besagt, dass wir nur dann kreativ werden können, wenn wir uns eine Informationspause gönnen und unser Gehirn all die Information neu verknüpfen kann, verordnet Todd Henry dem Leser eine Informationsdiät und eine "bewusste und gesunde Informationsaufnahme". Dies macht sein Konzept alltagstauglich.

Meiner Meinung nach ist Kapitel 7 der Schlüssel des Ganzen. Mehr dazu hier: [...]

Andere Aspekte seines Konzeptes wurden von anderen Autoren um vieles konkreter und umfassender erläutert, wie z.B. die effektive und effiziente Arbeitsorganisation (Tim Ferriss "The 4- Hour Workweek") oder die Nutzung zwischenmenschlicher Beziehungen (Tim Sanders "Love is the Killer App").

3.0 von 5 Sternen An okay attempt to enhance your creativity 6. Oktober 2011
Von Nancy Loderick - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Creativity comes and goes; you can't force it. Todd Henry attempts to show how to enhance your creativity. While there were some interesting points in this book, I was not particularly inspired.

The good points for me:

**Ideas how to maintain a creative rhythm. It's perfectly normal to not be in creative mode all of the time. Recognize the down times and make the most of them.

**The concept of focus. Todd suggests that you group like tasks together so you can maintain rhythm and focus. Try not to constantly check your email while trying to do something else. You end up half concentrating on each task.

**Tips on how to manage your energy. Okay, this is common sense, but it's helpful to have it repeated. I'm most definitely a morning person, so that's when I should be doing my tough tasks that require lots of thinking.

**Suggestion to aside time to just think. This is very hard to do in our overly-scheduled, 24/7 connected world, but it will pay off. Start with just one hour a week.

**Learn how to identify and cut your time sinks. Recognize that surfing the Internet is not productive. Sure it may relax you, but it is a big time sink.

What missed the mark for me:

**The book seemed to ramble. Todd goes from defining creativity and its components, to talking about team work, to giving some concrete steps on how to set up your Big 3, those most important loops in your life.

**I'm still not sure how all the chapters fit together. They seem piecemeal.

This book is best enjoyed if you skim and see if a few of Todd's suggestions resonate with you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Plan for Great Creating 7. Juli 2011
Von HolaMindy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
As soon as I finished reading this, I bought four more copies for my writer friends. This book will serve creative professionals and dedicated hobbyists of all stripes, from writers, painters, and graphic designers to design engineers and computer programmers.

This book will help you bring a thoughtful structure to your every day creative work. It's work in the best way; Todd teaches you how to examine your life as a whole to make sure that you have the key elements necessary to support your creating over the long term.

So often I find myself exhausted from a long day at work, with little energy left to give to my own personal art. After reading the book I've made some small, intentional changes to my daily habits and I've been excited to find I have so much more left in the tank for my writing and creating sessions. I even find myself waking up early, filled with new ideas. That's in the short term; I'm excited for the long term change to my production.

This book stands on its own (no knowledge of the podcast necessary), but fans of the podcast will especially love this book! It's definitely money well spent and I even find that it is helping me to synthesize the ideas from other creative revolution books like Daniel Pink's "A Whole New Mind." The book has earned a spot on my desk, not on my bookshelf.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Perfect Cure For Creative Misdirection...and Preparation 7. Juli 2011
Von Melissa M. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
If only I had been armed with this information in college but Oh how grateful I am to have it now!
A few years ago, I stumbled upon Todd Henry and his podcast. Instantly I was drawn in by his accessible manner, as he painted the picture of what creative burn-out looked like..and it was my self portrait. His emphasis on "filling your tank" with artistic input before you even begin expelling your creative output, changed my entire perspective of the process.

This book, How To Be Brilliant At A Moment's Notice is not only the compilation of the Accidental Creative's brilliant, prolific and healthy golden nuggets but reveals to you what's at the core of your blocked and frustrating creative moments. And then helps you create workable resolutions. I am thrilled to say that it exceeded all expectations that I had. It is the essential user's manual for any creative! If your creative outlook was impacted by Steven Pressfield's "The War of Art" then this book will blow you away.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Yes love it, but beware of the target audience 18. November 2011
Von Casey Lynn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
First of all, I love this book.

And now here is "why" of I love this book ....

I think this book is great if you are a creative in the commercial world (ie writer, artist, etc). I don't think it would be as helpful if you have what would be considered traditionally a non-creative job. It's really geared for those trying to avoid burn out and how to maintain the creative "flow" or always being on with some sort of consistency. These are pretty universal problems to most people in these types of jobs AND the book gives some practical everyday advice on how to manage/find creativity when you need to depend on it.

Read the book to see how it applies to you (but only if you are in a creative field.)

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Accidental Creative 4. November 2011
Von Michael Taylor - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I consider myself a reasonably creative person (I asked my wife the other day and she thought I was, so that settles it!). Some of the creative things I do or have done include: paint and decorate our house, paint small Civil War and Revolutionary War soldiers and create miniature battlefields, teach a Children's Sunday School and fill in for an Adult class, landscaping around our house, enjoy thinking and how to improve areas of my life, etc.

Naturally, I was drawn to Henry's book and wanted to get ideas on how to improve my creativity. The book is divided into 2 main parts:

1. Dynamics of Creativity - working with others, being careful of people and things that hijack creativity.
2. Establishing a Creative Rhythm in Your Life - focus, energy, stimuli, hours, relationships, etc.

Among the many topics covered include:

1. Working with other people can enhance your creativity - of course, I should clarify that working with the RIGHT kind of people can help! Other types of people can be energy and creative draining vampires!
2. Focus - try to stay on one topic for a reasonably prolonged period of time to allow for deep thinking. Some mindless employers expect you to constantly multitask, resulting in short and long-term adverse effects.
3. Stimuli - focus on events, surroundings, etc. that can enhance your productivity. Hint - different people respond to different stimuli.
4. Hours - use the time (morning, afternoon, night) when you are strongest and most likely to think creatively.
5. Energy - get enough rest, eat healthy, and do other things that are good for you and can help enhance your creativity.

I enjoyed reading the book. Most of the content consisted of material I have read before but still need to be reminded of (eat health, get plenty of sleep and rest, take periodic breaks from the project you need creativity on to think more clearly, see how activities relate to each other so you may save time and energy, etc.). Either I already knew the topics or was challenged to think of them with a different perspective and gain new insights.

A minor criticism - I would have liked to have read more in depth about how he went about obtaining a creative insight on something. For example, he mentions that he challenges his fellow team members to get out of the office, take a break, and come back with new insights. They do come back with new insights. I would have liked to have known -

where did they go? (he did mention them going to a museum, bookstore, etc.)
how did where they went related to the project they needed creative insights on?
what was the specific project they were struggling with at the time?
what was the specific insight they got for their project?

Being a reasonably creative person, I like to learn from other peoples' thought processes. Thought at times the book spent a lot of time on concepts and not enough on specific examples.

In fairness to the author, I believe the "Accidental Creative" is more of a book that helps you to prepare to become more creative instead of giving you specific step-by-step examples of how to do so. I suppose that folks more creative than I can figure out for themselves the specific steps.

Still, a good read to challenge and encourage you to prepare yourself to think more creatively when the time comes.
