Being creative can be difficult once you’ve gotten past the first few ideas that your brain can come up with, which then leads to a feeling of discomfort. It is said that sitting and thinking through the discomfort brings the true creative ideas. If you write down at least ten ideas a day, you will be able to keep your brain young and functioning. Prepare and research by watching what others are doing, observing culture, searching the web, looking at things, and reading on a diverse set of topics. You may have to put in a lot of time to get to the creativity level that you want to achieve.
- It’s not easy to be creative and come up with ideas, but when one sticks with it the right solutions will come along after the pain.
- The secret to creativity is being consistent and regular because the brain is like a muscle – the more you do creative work, the better you become.
- Generating ideas, especially for content, involves a lot of tasks like watching others produce their products, reading variety of topics and exposing oneself to culture.
“As James Altucher recommends, writing down 10 ideas every day will keep your brain sharp and agile and then when the pressure is on for you to deliver the campaign, your brain is on your side.”
