In trying to be more creative, we often go in search of new tips and techniques to use that’ll help us.
What usually happens next though is that rather than find a technique and try it for a few weeks or so, we pick 3 or 5 or 10 or more, and start them all at the same time.
Soon after, some things might be better, some might be worse, but because we have so much change happening at once, we can’t determine which techniques are effective for us and which aren’t.
Or worse still, we don’t pick any new way at all, feeling unable to make a choice from all the options we’re bombarded with!
Here then, is just one simple but powerful technique you can put into practice today to help you be more creative.
As with any new technique, read through, understand it as best you can, then take action and apply what you’ve learnt.
The only way to develop creatively is to try new things, see how they increase our creativity, then make a few adjustments, see what works better and what doesn’t and continue to evolve from there.
Creating a little each day can help you be more creative.
This technique is quite probably more powerful and fundamental to a highly enjoyable and rewarding creative life than any other.
Creating a little each day is the key and the cornerstone to producing wonderful creative works over and over again, and growing and developing our creativity to new levels as we do.
Here’s how, in 5 simple steps, you can apply the technique effectively in your creative life:
Step 1. Start by setting a time period to create in. Be kind to yourself and begin small with 10 or 15 minutes, not 3 or 4 hours.
Step 2. Choose a time of day you think will work for you. When do you tend to be more creative – in the morning, afternoon, evening, late at night?
Step 3. Commit to creating at this time, for this time period, every day for the next two weeks. For this to work, you must commit every day, and create for at least your minimum time period.
Step 4. Adjust and evolve. After a week or two, increase the time period to 30 or 45 minutes. If the time of day you started with isn’t working so well, try another time of day. But be consistent and create at the same time every day.
Step 5. Repeat for the rest of your creative life and reap the rewards. This technique can help you create ANYTHING you want to create. Consistent creative action, however small the steps at first, will in time lead to great creative accomplishments.
Creating a little each day is a very powerful and flexible way of helping you increase your creativity.
Try it for just two weeks and notice the difference it makes. Before long you’ll be creating as naturally and easily as other things you do without thinking in your daily life like getting dressed, brushing your teeth or having a meal.
Once you master this, and how it works FOR YOU, there’s really no limit to how you much you can unleash your creativity, and what you can achieve in your creative life.
