Creativity Comes in Many Shapes

We all have a creative side. For some folks, it’s a witty piece of conversation tossed out casually during dinner with friends. For others, it’s that breakthrough solution to a puzzling problem at work that only emerges after hours of quiet contemplation. Some creative wins are big and effect millions of people. Some are small and make just a few people’s lives a little bit richer.

Sometimes a great idea, a perfectly timed comment, or even a simple observation can make all the difference for you personally. When it does, don’t hesitate to print, sign, and give this original printable “Certificate of Achievement” to a deserving recipient!

Ways to Award This Certificate

Be sure to fill out the details carefully with your favorite permanent pen. Then think of a creative way to award it. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

  • Send it by mail. There’s nothing quite like finding a fun surprise amidst all that junk mail.
  • Staple it to a telephone pole near the recipient’s home or office.
  • Sneak into their room and stash it in a pile of papers you know they’ll eventually flip through.
  • Attach it to your refrigerator for everyone in the house to read and appreciate.
  • Roll it up like a scroll, tie a ribbon around it, and leave it at their place at the dining table.
  • Fold it up like a paper airplane and swoosh it across the room.

However you do it, have fun. And then come back and post a comment below to share how it went!

    There are a lot of discouraging things going on nationally and internationally these days. This wonderful idea – a certificate of achievement – is a perfect antidote. It’s so empowering to feel that there are little things we all can do to contribute to building a better world, one small idea at a time. Thanks so much Lea!
