I had the great pleasure last week to interview Tom Evans @TheBookwright. Tom is an author and a bit of a renaissance man who also creates apps for iOs, consults with authors and has a background in engineering.

But I think of Tom as an expert on creativity, and that’s where his new book, The Art and Science of Lightbulb Moments, comes in. In it, Tom shows how, through ideas and practical exercises, anyone can have unlimited creativity. Sound good? Watch the video and see what you think.

In the 27:06 video, we discuss

  • The scientific method as applied to lightbulb moments
  • How did an electronic engineer become an author, hypnotherapist and writer’s unblocker?
  • How do you know you’ve had a lightbulb moment as opposed to any old thought?
  • What stops lightbulb moments?
  • What encourages them?
  • The role of practical exercises in stimulating creativity.
  • How Tom combines influences of East and West in his practical awareness exercises.
  • How mindmapping helped Tom complete his book.

(Note: If you don’t see the video, please reload or refresh your screen. There are a few instances of audio interference during the video, but none last more than about 3 seconds, sorry for the inconvenience.)
