As I sit here think­ing about how to sum up an en­tire month’s worth of work – 144 pagesworth, in­clud­ing a shoot and cover story with the inim­itable Jamie Oliver – I keep com­ing up short. In­stead, all I can think of are these words from Ra­haf Har­foush (p. 28), who worked on Barack Obama’s 2008 cam­paign: “Cre­ativ­ity needs space and dis­tance, and pro­duc­tiv­ity is all about con­tin­u­ous out­put. Those two are very in­com­pat­i­ble.” Yet how of­ten do we get to the end of the day and beat our­selves up for spend­ing too long try­ing to get in the cre­ative ‘zone’, as well as not tick­ing enough things off our to-do lists?

In this is­sue we cham­pion those peo­ple do­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary and cre­ative things – in­clud­ing a peanut but­ter en­tre­pre­neur who runs a com­pany while legally blind, and the count­less founders who’ve built Is­rael into a true in­no­va­tion na­tion. And, in the spirit of sup­port­ing in­cred­i­ble en­deav­ours, I’m so thrilled to bring you a story un­der Cre­ative Com­mons – where the writer al­lows any­one to re­pub­lish their work with the hope that as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble will get to read it. Jour­ney with me as we head into the moun­tains of Mex­ico and see how vir­tual re­al­ity is re­shap­ing the world of medicine as we know it.

Set aside time for this is­sue, use it as your space and dis­tance, to al­low your cre­ative en­er­gies to flow, and to be in­spired and fired up – and re­turn to daily life ready to be more pro­duc­tive, and suc­cess­ful, than ever.
