I ran across this blog called "The Heart of Innovation." On it, they posted a video featuring a speech John Cleese gave on creativity. The video is about ten minutes long and has great points on stepping away from the whirlwind of life and creating a personal "oasis" for your brain.

Be sure to check out The Heart of Innovation's site while you're playing around online. Thanks to them and Jason Falls for bringing this bit of video to my attention.
