If you're like me... a day, a week or a month can fly past without making time to create! It is really easy to get caught up in the busyness of life in our crazy modern age!!! So I've come up with 3 Easy Steps to help you to increase your Creative Productivity... these are some of the things that I do to avoid distractions and keep myself on track… I hope you find them useful:
1. Have a REASON to create: your 'reason' may be to create an artwork each month based on the Powertex inspiration agenda, so that by the end of the year you have 12 completed artworks! How AWESOME would that be!!!
2. SCHEDULE some time in your daily/weekly or monthly routine to create. The amount of time you allocate for your creativity is up to you... you may only want to allocate 1 day per month... whatever you decide stick to it!!! Write it in your calendar so that you are committed to that time... if something comes up be sure to re-allocate that creative time somewhere else in your schedule. Imagine how good it will feel to set some time aside for yourself!
3. CHALLENGE yourself: book into a workshop to learn something new or try a new product and see what you can do with it! You'll be amazed at your creativity!!!
If you struggle to find a creative space why don't you try implementing these simple strategies for 12 weeks in the next quarter of our Inspiration Calendar... use the Inspiration Calendar as your reason to create, schedule some time and challenge yourself to try some new approaches... I hope it makes a difference!!! Let me know how you go!!!
