Repetition is the enemy of creativity. How often have you begun the day with a grand vision for progress and change, only to end it with the nagging feeling that you’ve done much but achieved little?

One of the best ways to break free from the minutiae of daily life is to take time out to look at the creative works of others. Your reaction to seeing these works might range from ‘Why on earth didn’t I think of that?’ to ‘Why on earth did they bother?’ The point is that you are thinking about creation.

If you are at all interested in product design or commercial creativity, a great place to start is Toxel.com, which describes itself as “a daily design, inspiration and technology blog dedicated to showcasing the best creative products and designs from all over the world”.
