To have more creativity, follow this two-step plan:
- Further creativity.
- Train your mind to be more originative.
Begin on both of this right now, and you are able to experience higher creativity today.
Further your creativity and you’ll increase your creativity. Of course, this is true of most things you want to see more of in your life. Encouragement can work wonders, but how do you further creativity?
Begin by paying attention to it. Our subconscious tends to give us more of what we pay attention to. Ignore the originative aspects of your life, and you’re telling your subconscious that they’re unimportant. Consciously note when you’re originative, and your subconscious brain will begin feeding you more originative ideas. Just look for it and you’ll discover more of it.
You may further creativity by writing your ideas down. Begin keeping an “idea journal.” Do this on a regular basis, and you’ll notice that you often begin having more ideas the moment you begin to write. A passable idea might normally be forgotten, but by writing it down, you might remember it. Then your subconscious may work on it, and might transform into something really originative.
For more creative thinking in your life, begin putting originative ideas into practice. If you paint, paint something altogether different from your common subjects. If you sell homes, try a fresh approach. Even just driving a different route to work to see if it’s quicker may further your creativity. Just acquire your brain working outside of its steady patterns.
Altering your environment can further creativity. For more creativity in your love life, go hike a mountain with your mate. If you write, attempt sitting on a roof to
write. For fresh ideas for your business, take a notebook to the park and sit by the pond. Any alteration of environment may get your brain out of its rut.
To dramatically expand your creativity, develop originative habits of brain. If you watch a great comedian, you’ll see that she’s trained her brain to look for the “different angle” on daily things. Why not train your brain to do the same?
Begin challenging assumptions, for instance, till it becomes habit. If you’re seeking ways to acquire more buyers, stop and say, “Do I truly need more buyers?” It’s a question that suggests other originative solutions, like discovering ways to make more cash off existing buyers, or ways to cut expenses. It may lead to more profitable ideas. Challenge assumptions is a good way to have more creative thinking in your problem solving. Till next time Cliff!
