If you’re a creative person, or you want to be more of a creative person, you need to make an effort to create each and every day. When you don’t practice your creative skills, you won’t get anymore creative or inspired. You can think about it all you like, but you won’t make anything of value! We were all born to create to some extent. This guide will help you to develop those skills every day.
Try To Create Something Each Day
Aim to create something each day, no matter how big or small. Even if you don’t finish something, at least make some time for it. Whatever it is; a song, a poem, a piece of jewellery, or handmade wedding invitations. The more you create the more you’ll get into the habit of it, which is the most important thing.
Have Rituals You Like To Carry Out
Having rituals you like to carry out will get you in a better mood for creating. For instance, get up in the morning and read a book. Enjoy a coffee outside before getting ready. Listen to a song that really perks you up. Having these rituals will get you ready to have an incredible day and in the right mood for making stuff.
Follow Things That Excite You The Most
You’ll always create the best things when you follow the paths that excite you the most. You should never think about it in terms of money or profit. You should simply follow the things that light you up and make you happy. Money may come as a result of this, and you’ll be better for doing something you really enjoy.
Make A Note Of When You’re The Most Productive
Doing things when you’re the most productive is key. Do you feel like creating early in the morning, or late at night? By making a note of when you feel your best, you can aim to create at that time every day.
Interact With Other Creative People
The more time you spend with other creative people, the more creative you’ll tend to be. We usually become the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with, so pick the people closest to you wisely. If you spend a lot of time with people who aren’t really doing anything with their lives, you’re unlikely to go far either.
Forget Talent And Just Do Something Instead
Someone telling you that you have talent can be nice, but it’s also really daunting. What if you do something wrong, will they change their minds? Should things come easily to you? Everybody had to start somewhere, and just because you don’t have natural ‘talent’ doesn’t mean you can’t learn. Just because you do have talent doesn’t mean you don’t put effort in. Forget talent and just do something that lights you up instead.
The world needs more creative people. How will you create and contribute? Don’t do it for anybody else but yourself and you can be sure you’re on the right path!
