    Caffeine for the Creative Mind is sure to perk up your sluggish brain with 250 creativity workouts. (Use it or lose it, after all.) In addition to the simple 15-minute exercises, the book features interviews with some of today's leading designers and creative thinkers. Ready to get started? Here are three exercises from the book: 1. There are signs posted around every office in the world, signs that warn us of impending danger, bathroom segregation, or even which way the exit is. What if those signs were changed to an international pictorial language that not only identifies, but adds art to the space? Forget the shapeless figures and celebrate the difference between men and women, janitors and upper management! Create new signs for: a) Men’s/Women’s Room b) Fire Extinguisher c) Janitor’s Closet d) Executive Washroom e) Parking Garage f) Exit 2. Every one of us has dreamt, at some point in our lives, what it would be like to be rich and famous, living in Beverly Hills, shopping on Rodeo Drive, walking overtly pink poodles with more bling around their neck than the NBA bench-warmer down the street. We’ve imagined what that life of luxury is really like. Oh, the crazy things we would own! Let’s imagine it one more time. Your task is to write down 10 things a single woman living in Beverly Hills would own. 3. Point of view can make the difference between good and great. By looking at problems from another point of view, we often find solutions we’ve never seen before. On a piece of paper, draw nine triangles, all of equal size and composition and equally spaced across the entire paper. Now, interpret those triangles from another point of view by making a drawing using the triangles. Create something out of each triangle that sees it from the point of view of: a) Mad Scientist b) Baseball Player c) Dancer d) School Bus Driver e) Mortician f) Street Cart Hot Dog Vendor g) Fish h) Lawyer i) Zookeeper
