This past Wednesday was May’s DIY Networking event at Share Denver. Lindsey Stone facilitated the evening, which consisted of a lightening round of questions, which got everyone contributing and thinking. One of the questions was, “How do you find inspiration when you need it most?” Donna of Donna Diddit shared that she started something called “Field Trip Fridays,” as a way to get out of her studio, change her environment and ensure that she experiences something new to inspire and motivate her.
I love this idea of making it part of your week – something that you put on the calendar to ensure that you make the time to do it. Donna will share her outings on her site and via social media as well as invite others to join her. It is a wonderful way to change your perspective a bit, while also tapping into various opportunities within your community. The field trips don’t need to be elaborate – it might be as easy as checking out a gallery on your lunch break. In the same way that kids need field trips to expand their horizons and make learning come alive – so do we!
You can follow Donna or share your own adventures by tagging your photos with #FieldTripFriday.
What would your first field trip be?
