In a recent article in the Philadelphia Business Journal, successful author and businessman Harvey McKay asks "What Drives Creativity?" Drawing on his own life experiences, McKay affirms: "You can't always sit around and wait for inspiration to strike...you are not born with creativity...you have to cultivate creativity on an ongoing basis."
 
His #1 idea for stretching your creative muscles? Keep a journal. Buy a spiral notebook and tie a pen to it with ribbon. Jot down thoughts, observations, questions. Sketch pictures. Tape in photos, articles, recipes. Include anything that inspires you. When you need a creative boost, refer to your notebook!
