Designing creative, time-limited activities in a low-risk environment will generate a sense of urgency without pressure or stress. For example, a 1-minute writing exercise promotes spontaneity because it does not allow time for pondering details. The exercise can produce imaginative and unanticipated outcomes.
When there is pressure, such as an impending deadline, the environment can become stressful. Stress transitions the environment from low-risk to high-risk, diminishing creativity and producing outcomes that are less valuable. A high-risk environment may cause the partners to settle on an outcome that pleases no one. Avoid undue stress by taking the time to play, have fun, and dream with the writing, which promotes a meaningful and successful outcome.
