This week we take a look at Asset #17, Creative Activities. According to the Search Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when they spend three or more hours a week engaged in music, theater or other arts.”
I should have turned the column this week over to someone who is a more knowledgeable source. I’m about as creative as a turnip, with no disrespect to turnips.
I can assure you that I may volunteer three hours a week, read three hours a week or at least listen to music three or more hours a week, but that is the extent of my wisdom on this Asset.
Perhaps this is an excellent opportunity to explain that I don’t expect everyone to have all 40 Assets. As a matter of fact, I don’t have all 40 of these Assets, but the more a person has, the data shows the more successful they can be in life.
This asset kicks off one of four opportunities to discuss the category titled, Constructive Use of Time. You don’t need to be brilliant in any single category, but do dabble in those you know nothing about.
This Asset can be broached by wandering through the art gallery of Mesa Public Library or the Art Center at Fuller Lodge. You don’t need to buy anything, pay for any type of special class or lesson, there are many things that can be done at very little or no cost at all.
