Open your eyes, it’s Monday! 👀 Time to fill up our creativity tank with a little Monday Morning Rocketfuel.

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.” – Steve Jobs

Creativity. It’s the defining mark of successful entrepreneurs all over the planet.

When you think of Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, you think of highly creative individuals whose ideas have revolutionized our world. Yeah, they get a little crazy at times, but you need a little crazy to run your own business.

“But, my business isn’t creative,” you say. Neither were theirs.

It would have been easy to write off these companies as nerdy and boring. After all, we’re talking about a computer company, a book-seller, and an electric car manufacturer. None of those were considered mainstream at the time, but the creative brains behind them ignited the public’s imagination.

With a little passion and inspiration, your company can do the same.
