We need creativity at every step in entrepreneurship right from designing the best logo.
However, creativity does not always flow. Sometimes, it is taxing and it seems like a lot of work. Creativity shouldn’t feel like that at all. Creativity should come naturally and the juices should flow without you having to sweat. Of course there will be times when you simply can’t think of anything.
At such times the following tactics will come handy:
Don’t be Scared
If you let your fears hold you back you will not be able to get creative. Creativity comes when you let go off those worries. One good way of ensuring that you are not scared is to not prepare too much. Just start working! The more you prepare the more you will be worried and scared of mistakes and failures. You don’t need to-do lists and calendars. Just start working.
Inspiration won’t come knocking on your front door. You should seek inspiration, find it, and use it! How you seek it is completely up to you – may be reading blogs will help you or may be going through the works of your inspiration will give you some ideas.
Take a Break
If you are completely blank the best thing to do would be to step aside and take a break from all of it. Pushing yourself too hard won’t really work because too much focus can hinder your thinking and creativity. Simply take a break, go on a walk may be, and come back with a fresh mind. You’ll be able to think well.
Sharing a problem reduces its depth. Talk to someone else about your task and may be you can work together to come up with something creative. A fresh insight always works wonders.
Go back to your Past Thoughts
Go back in time and think about all the ideas you had before. If you have them written down somewhere, go through your notes. If not, simply close your eyes and think. Choose one idea and improvise.
Use any of these tactics to overcome your creativity block.
It is really very hard to stay creative all the time. When you experience a block you should try a couple of tactics such as taking a break, improvising, diving into work without too much preparation, and sharing with someone else.
