I was on a plane recently staring at the sky above Perth when I refocused and watched a woman crochet for the next three hours of the flight! As I watched, I realised how important it is to be creative and to embrace it in our daily lives.
You may find yourself in an endless cycle of routine calls, emails and meetings, busy busy like a bee.
To be productive, we need to get creative and break the humdrum hamster wheel of work. So take these steps to better create each day:
Creative times: Get in tune with when you are at your best creatively. When your energy is at its peak, it’s time to create!
Schedule creation: Schedule creation time into your daily routine. Guard it jealously and don’t let others interfere your time. If you have allocate time for creative you will like to have the time to do your creative activities.
Be present in creation: Become one with your creation, embrace it, feel it, enjoy it. Block out all other thoughts and fully focus on your creation.
Catch creation: If you have a busy life, don’t just dream creation, realise it. Think how you can snatch a few moments of each day to think about future creation. Finding time to create can be hard, but it’s one of the most important things we can do.
