As creatives, there’s no short amount of obstacles and excuses we can’t come up with.
From lack of time, money, and inspiration, the list can become long and depleting.
If you haven’t got that creative ball rolling on your dream projects this year, here’s a list of three tactics that have helped us to get things moving faster.
1. Seek knowledge first and implement fast. This is another way of saying, learn, apply and improve. As we gather relevant information we put it to use. We don’t wait to have all the answers or hold to the unrealistic expectation of knowing it all before making changes and trying new things. As we learn we do. And as we try we improve. We reach our for knowledge and learning experiences we fill up our well to spread that knowledge forward.
2. Make professional + pretty work on a budget. We take advantage of what’s high-quality yet free! A site like Creative Market has given us the opportunity to try free products that look great, fonts, images, graphics, and templates. Our sites and pages don’t have to feel under construction. They can look professional and pretty from the start. And once we are ready to turn it up a notch, we have already picked out our favorites from their extensive marketplace.
3. Find inspiration by sharing/spreading stories. As we discover and grow comfortable sharing our own creative story, we can practice and be inspired by sharing others. Maybe is the story of an individual creative, a brand you love, a creative service that has helped you or a product that has changed the way you work or live. Every person, every brand, service, and product has a story. As we get to know those stories and participate in the creative universe, the creative-vibe will find its way back to us. (stay tuned for upcoming #GabasVlog on the power of creative synergy)As long as we are growing, doing, connecting, we are moving, and we are living with purpose. Click To Tweet
