On Sunday, July 28 at the Michigan Interscholastic Press Association (MIPA) summer workshop at MSU, Karl Gude presented about creative thinking.
“How do you define success? It’s your life,” Gude said. “How can you stand out and not be like everyone else but still feel safe?”
He spoke about how people lose their creativity over time and how they can get it back and have more creative thinking by having more fun with what they’re doing and being happier.
“Creative thinking starts with you,” said Gude. “When it’s fun our brains feel free and creative.”
He talked about his past and how when he said yes to a job he didn’t want, it changed his life and he ended up liking the job.
“Be willing in life to say yes to things you don’t want to do,” said Gude. “Just say yes.”
