The Power of Inspiration

What inspires you?What gives you the chills or moves you when you watch it? What motivates you when you read it? What simply puts you in a better mood after hearing it? What makes you cry? What makes you laugh?Inspiration is a quality of experience that underlines what we value and care about. It goes hand in hand with our vision for our lives and what we choose to focus on. Sources of inspiration, whatever they may be for you, are important because they encourage us to take risks—to do things we may be afraid to do—and to keep going when the going gets tough. They help us find ideas when we feel we have none or when we need a kick in the seat of the pants.As a creative firm, we’re always looking for fresh ways to be inspired. We hold weekly inspiration meetings and take turns presenting something inspirational—discussing how it inspires us, what it means to us personally, and how it relates to our business. Not everyone may get it, and not everyone may be inspired each week, but it helps us learn, grow, and most importantly, connect with a shared vision.Our inspiration meetings help get our creative juices flowing. We like to think our ideas come not solely from inspiration, but from creating that potential to be inspired. You don’t have to be in the creative business to be inspired, share what inspires you, or benefit from others’ inspirations. When ideas flow freely, work becomes more innovative, interesting, and efficient.Sharing opinions in front of a group and influencing others are important skills to have not only in business but also in life. Taking the time to bring your team closer and learn more about each individual member strengthens relationships both personally and professionally. Take that extra moment today to uncover what inspires you. What do you care about? What motivates you? In the end, you will be a more effective worker, a more caring team member, and a more connected person.-Christina
