If your company revolves around producing creative work, I know you’ll agree with me when I say that there are days where everything falls apart, your creative juices aren’t flowing, and you suddenly lose your enthusiasm and energy. Today, let me share with you 5 tips on how you can stay creative.
1. Get Lots of Rest
When you work under pressure or you lack sleep, you get cranky, you tend to be impatient, and you’re just too tired to do things. If you don’t rest or at least give yourself a break, you’ll only eventually beat yourself up and lose the motivation and enthusiasm for your work.
2. Carry a Notebook Everywhere
There’s something about writing down ideas on an actual paper that makes you eager to make it happen. Ideas can pop out of nowhere, whether you’re doing your grocery shopping or walking home from work – jot them down in your handy notebook or they might just disappear into thin air.
3. Surround Yourself with Creative People
Surrounding yourself with creative people will help you learn constantly. They can help you see things from a different perspective and will challenge you intellectually which will then help you grow and think differently.
4. Don’t be Afraid to Try Something New
If someone suggests a movie, book, or website that you should check out; there’s no harm in checking it out. Who knows, taking their idea might just give you a whole new perspective and way of looking at things.
5. Stay Focused
Cut out distractions such as social media, television, email, and the likes as these are crucial to generating creative focus. When you create a distraction-free environment; your mind, energy, and attention will be channeled into one thing.
