I get it as business owners entrepreneurs and course creators there is so much for us to do and sometimes we get a little bit stuck.
There are the day-to-day things that are mundane and we maybe don’t want to do. There are the marketing things, there are the hats that we wear and along the way, there are roadblocks that pop up that are going to stop us from moving forward so in this episode of talk that’s what we’re going dive into.
Just like you I get stuck too so it is time to share with you the five methods that I personally use when I feel stuck or in need of creative inspiration.
Changing things up and exploring new locations
To boost creativity, I work outside of my home office to change things up. I find I am a lot more productive in another space.
Working outside of your typical workspace can be beneficial for your creative process.
A change of scenery, such as a café, can aid in concentration and inspire new and innovative ideas.
And good coffee doesn’t hurt.
Journaling and writing ideas down
I always keep a notepad with me to write ideas when they come.
It’s a good idea to keep some tools handy, like a pen and paper, or scribble pads, to jot down any ideas that pop up during the day.
This way, you can come back to them later when you’re feeling stuck and need some inspiration.
Talk things out
A helpful way to generate ideas and inspiration is to use voice-to-text apps on your phone to have a conversation with yourself.
Speaking your thoughts out loud can often lead to finding solutions and new insights.
And it makes a good start for blogs and content to be in your tone of voice.
Immerse in colouring, drawing, or art to find new ideas
Participating in a creative activity, such as colouring in an adult colouring book, can redirect attention away from work and stimulate a different area of the brain and then guess what ideas start following.
Take a break
If you’re feeling uninspired or stuck, it can be helpful to take a break from your current task. Whether it’s a weekend off, a day off, or just a short walk or coffee break, stepping away for different amounts of time can provide a fresh perspective and renewed focus.
This can make it easier to find inspiration and complete your work and we all know an overwhelmed head gets us nowhere.
Trying a new approach or strategy
One way to reignite passion and creativity for your business is by exploring new marketing techniques or trying out new activities outside of work.
By stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying something different, you may discover a fresh source of inspiration.
