#1 Learning Through Collaboration
Curiosity kills, so don’t let it kill your imagination. Getting feedback and a second opinion about certain things will help expand your mind to new ideas and boost your creativity. It also allows your mind to shift in other directions when having an external opinion.
#2 Do Something You Love
If you ever experience a creative block in anything that you are doing (who hasn’t!), you can simply just go back to doing something you absolutely love to do, something that relaxes and inspires you.
#3 Find Inspiration Elsewhere
We live in an era where technology is perpetually enhanced every day and other industries are using it wisely to come up with new creative concepts. Your next idea won’t come from copying your competitors, so look for new innovative concepts from different industries, boost your own creativity and refine your end product. Remember that a toothpick was just a piece of wood at one point.
It’s safe to say we are all busy, and being over-committed is the norm nowadays; we are packed with meetings, tasks, emails and deadlines across our day.
What a lot of people don’t seem to understand is that we need to unplug every now and then in order to be more productive, focused and most importantly happy. It could be as simple as a good night’s sleep or watching the sunset or just cruising around your hometown. Your next great idea won’t come from over stressing your brain to a breaking point, so unplug, relax and allow your brain to recover from overworking.
