"Looking back, my life seems like one long obstacle race, with me as its chief obstacle."—Jack Parr
Our house is trashed. Travels to various gigs and conferences, a yard sale, half-completed projects, and pieces of paper that seem to breed while I sleep, have all contributed to a mess that makes past states of disarray seem like the "good old days". Answering the phone is now an athletic event involving hops, leaps, dodges, and dances.
What obstacles can you add to a routine or transitions between routines to add more drama, play, and challenge?
For everyone else:
Thinking creatively involves thinking foolishly. A non-fool would try to eliminate obstacles to solve a problem. A fool adds obstacles to a problem that has enough already and may just solve the problem by doing so. What obstacles can you add to your problem? How can you make things worse?
