I’ve still been thinking about the discussion I had last week during my Art of Being Creative Workshop on how difficult it is for people to find time to practice creativity. One thing I know is, just like anything else, finding time to practice means actually ‘making and then taking the time’. So, here’s a few suggestions on how to do that:
- Make time for creativity practice first! Before you get busy with your busy day!
- Schedule your creativity time on your calendar – and add an alarm!
- Start small. Schedule 10 – 15 minutes. It doesn’t have to be long. You just have to do it!
And, because I know that starting, and practicing anything new is easier with a coach, I have a challenge for you! Every morning this week I’ll be posting a new ‘creativity starter’ on my website, LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. Post what you’ve created in response for all five days and you’ll be entered to win one of my original drawings! And, more importantly, you’ll be well on the way to making – and taking – the time for creativity, a habit!
