Creativity Needs Planning

We often think that creative people are spontaneous types that go with the flow and change plans in an instant… This to me is called “VACATION”. Only on a vacation can I really relax enough to not have a plan. Being a creative by profession means something totally different.

After doing some research, I found some tips and tricks that make the iPad really useful for both work and play.
