Lizi Hamer, wrote the chapter: How Making Maketh the Creative
A creative mind does not work 9-5; instead it is whirring, buzzing and connecting dots 24/7. Creative minds invent thoughts and ideas when no one is watching; in fact they themselves might not even be concentrating. It’s incredible to behold.
But rather than just observe, I believe we all need to roll up our sleeves and make for ourselves, because after all, when we get our hands dirty, we learn, discover and improve. The very act of making can help develop your problem solving skills, and in today’s busy world, where problems are becoming ever more complex, a good problem solver will always be in high demand.
This chapter will take you through a creative journey of sheer perspiration in making; show how running can help run a community and that the power of bringing more shimmy to a dance party can make the experience matter.
Great ideas can come suddenly; sometimes in the middle of a run or during a hot shower, but more often than not when you’re in the process of making itself. From the depths of the mind a network of brain cells perform an incredible symphony and an idea comes into consciousness.

In recent scientific studies*, it has been shown that when we ‘free’ the mind of its inhibitions, we can improve our problem solving abilities. To free the mind is to stop the logical processing our brain’s conduct and allow the subconscious to make random associations, unnatural connections, the blind leaps that allow for incredible idea generation. The act of making makes this happen.
