Yes! And…

creative perspectivesThe other day I was listening to an interview with an author on NPR when a call-in comment made me stop and think. This caller, John from Chicago, explained the powerful creative tool he learned from doing improv comedy.

“Yes! And…”

Whoa. Two words that affirm and springboard to more ideas. How simple. I can see that these two words will create a spark in my creative projects - and in my business and personal life, too.

Let’s all say it together (good and loud now):

“Yes! And…”

Just saying “yes,” is very effective too. It’s amazing what you can produce when someone supports the idea.

This is my brother in law’s favorite concept from the improv classes he’s taken here in Chicago. I’ll remind him of this when I see him over the holidays and maybe we’ll play a little game of “yes! and…”
