Anyways, we are on to week three of inspiration which is this awesome list of ways to stay creative. It's very relevant to me currently and I think most of us can relate to having struggled with distractions and creative blocks at some point.
Most of the points are great but I've picked out five that I think are especially useful and inspirational, which can be a challenge at times for even the best of us.
7. Such a useful point! How many times have you been going square eyed, pushing and forcing it to work and not really "seeing" it anymore? Once you come back to a project the next day or in a few hours there is opportunity to get a fresh angle and some perspective. I find a brisk walk always helps!
12. Being open...this is a fabulous point. Being open is one of the most important things you can do to open up your creativity. Being receptive to new ideas, new styles and techniques. Even using colours that you don't usually gravitate towards and be terribly refreshing - one of the best mottos is in for a penny in for a pound...
23. Which leads nicely onto this one: getting out of your comfort zone. Why stick to the same old? Never feeling slightly freaked out by trying something different (ie out your zone) will not breed creativity. Go with something new, be bold...you have nothing to loose trying it!
26. If something doesn't or isn't working it's a good tactic to learn to be able to regroup and start over. You know deep down when something isn't all happening and more often than not easier to scrap it and go again.
I would love to know what you think!
Have a fab week
