Harness Creative Thinking
Creativity is pure gold, no matter what you do for a living.  Annette Moser-Wellman, author of The Five Faces of Genius asserts, “The most valuable resource you bring to your work and to your firm is your creativity. More than what you get done, more lthan the role you play, more than your title, more than your ‘output’–it’s your ideas that matter.”
Despite the importance of a person’s ability to think with creativity, few people seem to possess the skill in abundance.
If you’re not as creative as you would like to be, you can change your way of thinking.  In fact, I think people mythologize original thought.  Most often, creative thinking is a composite of other thoughts discovered along the way.  Even the great artists, whom we consider highly original, learned from their masters, modeled their work on that of others, and brought together a host of ideas and styles to create their own work. 
If you are a chamber member, you can leave your business cards, rack cards and flyers at the Visitors center inside the South door to the Library. Be sure to get your information over here. It’s part of your benefit as an Edgewood Chamber member!
Stop by the office to see Madeline if you have any questions , or call my cell 850-2523.

Too Many Lies To Count

Thanks to Pastor Max Sanchez for the tip:

Transparency, no tax increase, ObamaCare and on and on.  Watch the many ways he has lied to the American people and try to tally the total.
