Set a Schedule
One thing I found particularly interesting in my findings is that some people were saying that it’s not motivation that you’re looking for or missing… it’s a routine.
It’s important to set time aside to be creative consistently. Use that time to focus on getting any ideas you have out of head.
Even if you don’t think they’re good ideas at first work it out a little. Whatever you make, it doesn’t have to be perfect as long as you’re creating something in the time you set aside.
Set a schedule. There is no way for you to know when you’re going to have a great idea. If you set time aside all your ideas will come out of your head and you’re bound to have a great one any day!
By setting a schedule you’re creating habits that will ultimately lead to a more creative you but don’t forget to be in a creative mindset all day long so you can bring new ideas to your scheduled creative time.
