A Quick Creativity Pep TalkPatti Digh’s book Creative Is a Verb is a favorite of mine. (I refer to it often, such as in this post.) Digh is an author, consultant and speaker, who writes the beautiful blog 37 days.

For a long time, I thought creativity was akin to art and making things—activities that I stopped doing a very long time ago. But, of course, we use creativity every day, whether we’re an artist, consultant, doctor, chef, teacher, CEO or homemaker.

Today, I wanted to share a powerful passage that Digh writes in response to a common question she gets: “How can I build a successful blog?”
