My buddy (and boss–though he’s been my friend longer than employer) Darren Rowse–an uber blogger is there ever was one–has been working on a series of posts on creativity.
While the series is aimed at bloggers, creativity is a central facet to almost any work. What brings those flashes of brilliance? Although I might joke that caffeine or chocolate contributes a great deal to my creativity, in reality I don’t fully know where it comes from in myself. I do know how to tap into it when I need to, and yes, it does require psyching myself up for it.
Take a moment and read the three posts thus far (I haven’t gone back to see if Darren has added a fourth) … I think something in at least one of the posts will click with you:
- How to be a more creative blogger
- 5 ways to enhance your creativity
- 9 attitudes of highly creative people
