Career Advice

It may seem that some are born with a more creative mind than others, but that may not be the case. If you can create the perfect storm, it may be easier for great ideas to rain down on you. Follow these tips and you may find that you do have at least one creative bone in your body.

  1. Talk it through with someone else.
    Whether you’re in a brainstorm meeting with multiple people or you’re sitting by yourself waiting for an idea to strike, back-and-forth conversation is crucial to creativity. Hearing your own thoughts spoken out loud, regurgitating the thoughts of others, and the questions that arise from this process will lead you down new paths and open new doors. Don’t sit silently in a corner!
  2. When lightning strikes, write it down.
    The reality is that an idea will pop into your head when you least expect it and possibly at the most inconvenient time. Even if you’re 100 percent positive that you’ll remember that great idea, write it down! Pull out your phone and put it in your notes or jot it on a napkin. Not only will the act of writing it down will help you remember it, but you’ll also now have a running list of great ideas.
  3. Surround yourself with creativity.
    We get inspired by the things we consume. If you’re feeling that your creativity well is dry, fill it up! Consume high-quality books, movies, TV shows, music, musicals, dance, food, conversation, and more. We’ve never been more connected to culture and people than in this moment. Take advantage of it!
