It helps to be creative

When you work with sales, it helps to be creative. Today at the office we did a creativity task. I don’t know if you’ve ever written a Haiku. It’s a Japanese poetic form in which you have 5 syllables in the first row, 7 in the second and 5 in the third. Often a Haiku hold some sort of reference to a season in some way.

Sometimes a framework gives new freedom. If I’d say: “Write a poem” a lot of people wouldn’t know where to start. So even though a Haiku holds a very clear framework with a set of rules it still gives freedom for you to be creative.

Here’s todays task for you:

  1. Write a Haiku. Or write a couple. Exercise gives excellence.

As a sales person it’s always useful to train your creative ability. To write a poem, in this case a Haiku, is one way to train this.

Here’s mine:

”Leaving winter time
Greeting the light squinting
Hot cheek smiling soul”

Why don’t you post yours in a comment below? 😉
