Time Apart is a short collection of his recent reflections on creativity in a time of crisis. While Covid is the background - most of these pieces were written in lockdown, which he prefers to call a time of 'breakthrough'- it's primarily about the creative process.
In chapters like Creative Distractions he advocates ways of tapping your own creativity - and having fun at the same time. 5 Ways to Reframe the Crisis invites you to take a questioning contrarian outlook on conventional language and so-called wisdom, while The Power of Silence encourages transcending the busy mind, to find bigger and better ideas.
Time Apart is essentially about ways to be more curious, challenging and creative through any crisis. Creativity is not the monopoly of artists and entrepreneurs - it's a state of mind, and as applicable to everyday living and relationships as to great inventions and discoveries.
