Are You Unknowingly Killing Your Own Creativity?

Are You Unknowingly Killing Your Own Creativity?

We all have moments when we feel that our creativity is in short supply. You dig and search in the deepest recesses of your mind for that one perfect word, idea, or solution to a problem, but ultimately return empty-handed. Although ideas and solutions can sometimes magically appear when you least expect them (in a dream, in the shower, or even on the toilet), the worst thing you could probably do is sit around and wait for inspiration or a stroke of genius. Thinking and brainstorming are useful, but doing the wrong things can leave you constantly searching for your ever elusive creative genius. Check out the infographic above for some inspiration exercises as well as tips on what you should or shouldn’t do to increase both your creativity and productivity.
