Take time out to be creative

Picture dd3Ever had those moments where you are working on something and hit the creative brick wall?  You sit there staring at your desk, screen or even out the window for inspiration.

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?
