Stuck in finding inspiration for that next great marketing campaign, advertising tag line or exceptional public relations initiative? The answer is all around you. Try cloud spotting. Watch and listen to this Ted Talk: Cloudy with a Chance of Joy.

Take a moment to do nothing, slow down and be present.
Look up and allow the clouds to inspire you.
