Well, inspiration may be closer than you think.
I am a firm believer that if you change your outlook you will get a different perspective.
I often hear people say, they feel guilty about making time to be creative. How could they justify a walk in the country or a coffee by the pond. How could that be work?
It is all too easy to forget to have fun at work; it doesn’t have to feel like you’re at the grindstone.
Take Google, as an example, what have they done to bring out eh creativity? They have invested in an amazing workplace. <Link>
Take a monument to work out how to make your workplace fun, even if it’s just a walk by the river or maybe the park.
Make time to be creative – carry a notebook or record your ideas on your phone.
The key is, what you do with those ideas. If you translate your musings into profitable ideas or solutions to a problem you were stuck with, they are an excellent investment and use of your time.
When’s your next planned time out?
