Calling on creativity at-will is a tough challenge. Some people think it’s impossible. Don’t get me wrong – it’s like wrestling a bear covered in grease, especially at first, but not impossible.
I’ve had a tough time with not having a “full tank” of creativity since I slaved through my higher education, whether it was just burnout or not.
The problem is that creativity and productivity are both closely linked to your energy levels throughout the day.
Sometimes you can bust through a bunch of little stuff without a problem, like doing the dishes, cleaning your desk, watching Netflix… Other times you’re antsy and can’t sit still.
And sometimes… you might daydream about Jessica Alba mowing the lawn in a duck costume.
This is when you’re most creative – when you make strange connections that may or may not make sense. We’ve already talked about how to harness that time, but is there a way to generate creativity?Details
