The Hive Series is an open-ended, life-long passion project to document and aggregate thoughts, opinions, ideas, and inspiration on living a more creative life. The site is set up so that the official Hive Series mini-documentary episodes are mixed in with other articles and videos of innovative inspiration. Beehives are a great example of collective groups working together towards a greater whole. This is the intent for hiveseries.com
When we take a step back from the problems we face as a human race, as a country, as a group or business, with our families, or even within ourselves, we realize there is often a major lack of creative initiative to move us forward. We become, as they say, stuck in a rut. Well, it takes innovation to pull ourselves out of ruts. It always has. It always will. Ask your great grand pappy LeGrand who came across the plains. Back then, when everything was D.I.Y, problem solving meant using your whole brain, not just the part highlighted on an S.A.T. result! Today, society has created an us vs. them division which seems to slow down our progress. Right brain vs. left brain, artsy vs. analytical, imagery vs. numbers. While some may come from the factory prewired to excel in one area over another, great things happen when we use the entire wet mushy thing between our ears – which requires a great deal of motivation and creative thinking.
