Don’t criticise what you create at first. You should let it grow. If it was worth making, there might just be something in it! This is why it is very useful to keep some of your notes and drawings in a folder. They might be very useful in the future.
We all like to think we will make a dramatic change, but I think we don’t. Over time we find the best way to be is to be our authentic self. To be the best version of yourself is all that is available, and it is plenty!
Give yourself permission to be creative. Give yourself permission to be an artist. Give yourself a commitment of time and then focus on one thing, the flow of creativity...
Let yourself get into a flow of creativity where your ideas become visual ideas that lead to new beginnings.
To enable the flow of ideas you need to…
Let your drawings develop by themselves; don’t think, question or label what you make at first!
Be observant, as if you know nothing and the world is new!
Listen to everyone, be interested rather than interesting!
Be curious about the world, ask questions rather than look for answers!
Be yourself; you have no choice, all the other people are taken!
Find and solve problems, they are everywhere!
Find and make connections!
Be happy to fail; you cannot grow if you are not willing to fail!
If you follow these simple guidelines you will find that your flow of ideas and creativity will blossom over time.
How can you build your creativity today?
