Collect the dots

By Street Wisdom

It’s such a simple idea.

This will stop you in your tracks, honest.

Here goes.

So. Creativity is about connecting the dots. That’s a given. That’s what creatives do. They see links and connections where others don’t.


But to be able to connect the dots, you’ve got to have some dots in the first place!

(Told you this would be simple.)

So before you can connect them, you’ve got to collect the dots.

And that’s where this wandering business comes in.

We wander the streets (or the forests or the plains) to collect the dots.

And then we connect them.

It’s so simple.

Honestly, it threw us too.
