Superboost your intuition – become more creative


I don’t understand all the keys to creativity. But as a creative person, these are some of the things I have learnt about being creative. These are my DOs and DONTs when it comes to being creative. What are yours?

  1. Don’t be possessive of your ideas – let ideas come and go
  2. Share your ideas freely with others
  3. To learn to speak out for your ideas is to learn to be vulnerable
  4. Don’t rush ideas – let ideas come at their own time
  5. Let ideas take time to mature
  6. Don’t dismiss new ideas because of early flaws
  7. Don’t hide your ideas from others
  8. And don’t let others control your ideas or your creative process
  9. The best ideas tend to appear when you’re alone and have privacy
  10. Ideas are fragile and sensitive, treat them with love and respect
  11. Brave people are more creative
  12. Free people have more ideas
  13. People who are watched never have ideas
  14. You can’t force or pressure creativity
  15. There’s nothing wrong with jumping from idea to idea
  16. You don’t have to commit to any one idea
  17. Don’t make an idea real unless you really want to
  18. If you can’t stop thinking about an idea, that means you really want to do it.
  19. If you can’t focus on your idea, that means you should find a better one
  20. Everyone has a “theme of ideas” – a system of ideas that define who you are and what your calling is
  21. It usually takes many years – sometimes decades – for us to find our “theme of ideas”
  22. The quickest way to finding your theme of ideas is to let it appear before you
  23. There is no such thing as a truly random idea – things may appear random, but nothing happens by chance
  24. Don’t dismiss ideas simply because they feel random or irrelevant
  25. Don’t let others tell you what the best way for you to advance your idea is – you decide!
  26. Celebrate others creative process – and find ways to add to it
  27. If you can envision it, it is possible
  28. If someone else can envision it, it must be possible.
  29. Never second guess your own creative judgement
  30. Your ideas are an extension of who you are, and you know best how to express your ideas with authenticity

Here’s my today’s video on finding your “theme of ideas” – Enjoy
