In the competitive world of innovation and creativity, inspiration is a very common word, and often overrated. It might even drag excuses for procrastinating: ‘I am waiting for inspiration.’ ‘Nothing is inspiring.’ ‘I have to find a new source of inspiration.’ ‘No light bulbs this morning!’ ‘When will that Eureka moment strike?’
Do you often find that you are waiting for inspiration to arrive so that your creative juices start running? There is a shortcut to that seemingly long and endless wait! How about you invite inspiration to come and jumpstart your mind into a creative journey? You can in fact do this as often as you like!
Here are a dozen tips that I have collected from my readings and humble experiences, feel free to pick whatever suits you. They are listed in no order of importance, only as my inspiration intended them to come out!
I keep six honest serving-men
They taught me all I knew
Their names were What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who..
I might want to add an extra ‘W’ here: what if. That can be a wild diversion!
