Still wondering what you’re doing here? Read this…


youR TuRn to DraW!

  • Find something to write with and a scrap of paper.
  • What creative moments have you not found the time for for one reason or another? Though you don’t need it, I’m giving you permission right now to give yourself the next 60 seconds to write (or sketch) in a few words (or a few simple sketches) the final vision of The Big Idea. (If there’s more than one, grab those too; the more the merrier!)
  • In the next 60 seconds, think of the first and smallest step you can do right now to begin just one of those Big Ideas.
  • Put your phone down and START RIGHT NOW.

Maybe this Ransom Note gives you a different idea? Let me know!

Not only does your creativity need YOU, but here’s a surprise, the world needs your creativity, too! By sharing your response to a Ransom Note, we are building a community who will enjoy, be inspired by, and learn from each other.
