Creativity expectations

Our expectations of how creativity should look like block us. Creative inspiration is all around us, but we don’t see it because we've grown up being taught to look for it in specific places.

  • Take a break. Give your brain some space to think of other things.
  • Expand your definition of creativity. You’re probably conditioned to look for it in specific places. Break that mold.
  • Limit yourself. Fewer tools and less time, counterintuitively, force you to be more creative.

Creative Thinking Defined

Creativity is not just reserved for artistic tasks such as writing, painting or composing music.

Creative thinking is the ability to consider something – a conflict between employees, a data set, a group project – in a new way. It involves lateral thinking - the ability to perceive patterns that are not obvious.

1) Start with a morning freewrite.

Instead of jumping right into your projects when you get into the office, block off ten minutes for a digital detox and grab a notebook and paper to just write.

Writing in a more free-form style will allow your creative juices to flow, while also forcing you to put your thoughts into written words.

Creative Burnout

There are many symptoms to this cause but we must understand first what creative burnout is. It is the state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion around creative working.

More than many of us experience creative burnout from time to time. However, we must keep in mind that having a creative burnout does not mean we are lazy or that we do not care about our work. Be kind to yourself.
