FUNdaMENTAL Creativity There is no greater way to promote productivity in the workplace than by supporting the well-being of the company's employees. The staff should be first priority, because they are the greatest asset of the business. Without passionate engaged employees, neither product marketing, sales, or shipping would be possible, nor could any services be properly rendered. FUNdaMENTAL Creativity is a well-organized accumulation of positive entertaining stimuli that can be offered to employees, coworkers, students, or children to get the creative juices flowing throughout your company, department, classroom, or family. This will then spill forth in waves of enthusiastic motivation to achieve the best job possible, which will result in a unified camaraderie along with the enrichment of achieving one's personal best. Managers and supervisors will know they are on the right track when their employees prefer to be at work rather than at home, simply because of the fun atmosphere and great sense of accomplishment they obtain while on the job. Description Amidst the toil and hardships dished out by life, it is a fact that the psychological and emotional needs of ordinary people should be taken into account and adjusted to the workload at hand. By keeping the mind active and alert with challenges that include an element of fun, even the most arduous, boring job can be enjoyed until the task is complete. This is because man is naturally a creative being. Creativity, like spirituality, requires a combination of mind, heart, and soul. They go hand and hand, and should be experienced daily. Those who participate in this exercise regularly will partake in the joy of life whether at work or play. Playful creativity makes work fun and leisure time more significant. By applying the riddles, puzzles, and challenges in FUNdaMENTAL Creativity, the employees in your office, students in your classroom, or children in your family will have their curiosity aroused and mental energy revitalized so they can activate their peak performance while learning something new every day.

A Word from the Author "I came to the conclusion many years ago that making people happy, no matter how it is done, is never frivolous or in vain, and should be carried out with great enthusiasm whenever possible. I know I would never have come to this conclusion fully without having had the advantage of applying this concept as a manager, vice president, or owner of a company myself. There is no doubt that happy workers are productive workers, which are the foundation of a successful business, and I am certainly one who can advocate that fact."
