In my last post I talked about seeking and finding your gift or talent. You probably have many talents, but I am referring to the one which you have decided, or will decide, to prioritise and take to a higher level. Perhaps you are still contemplating your options. Either way, you’ll need to set aside a suitable creative time and place in your day, one to help free the ideas and solutions you seek.
Find your preferred creative space for thinking
I tend to do activities that help to clear my mind from the day-to-day distractions. For me this may be getting out into the fresh air for a walk or run, listening to music, taking a 10 minute nap, or maybe going into a quiet space on my own to scribble in my visual diary.
If you are looking for ideas on how to nourish your creative thinking, here’s a great TED presentation by Susan Cain, who eloquently expresses the importance of “quiet time” or solitude in the creative process. Well worth watching.
I look forward to your feedback and thoughts.
