Children are filled with creativity. I mean c’mon, what creative thing you did when you’re younger?

Heck, even landscape sightseeing. I’m sure it will entice you.

6. Hope on an airplane

travel to be more creative

Besides museums all that, going places you never been may help with your creativity.

Take a picture or write down the things you find interesting there.

Try to implement it in your country in one way or another. People might admire your new ideas.

7. Take a break

When youre tired. Your mind wont be that active. So, have a refreshment.

Get some power naps. Lie down on the floor. Meditate. Your brain need rest too so that you can be more creative.

8. Don’t be afraid to reach out

Simply talking or sharing ideas with someone is a good thing.

One might fill in the blank that you’re struggling with. Maybe even improve the idea of one might have.

Next thing you know, both or group of you own a company. Now that’s a dream come true.

9. Add some groove

listen to music to be more creative

Try painting while listening to music. Add feelings to it.

Let that melody do the work.

It can be disruptive but with the right song, mood and mindset, next thing you know your painting sold for 3 grand. Who knows.

10. Improve an item

What are the things you think that needs an upgrade?

Baby bottle. Boom…That’s one thing. Why you ask?

Here’s why.

Have you ever clean a babies bottle before? I remembered cleaning one YEARS ago, thanks to my aunt.

Especially when its been sitting there for awhile? There’s bits of harden milk at the bottom of it. So you need to use a metal bristle to clean it but its a hit or miss thing?

And I though of, why not just make two opener on each side? Its easier to clean right?

Right there I became the next Steve Jobs. Just kidding, turns out someone already had the idea but with normal water bottle.

You see, just look around and think of something that can be improve.

11. Ask ask ask ask

ask more question to be more creative

Ask lots of question. Be curious. Just don’t annoy yourself or someone.

Here’s one curiosity quote from Steve Jobs:

“Much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity an intuition turned out to be priceless later on.”

Steve Jobs

12. Set 100 ideas

don't limit your ideas to be more creative

Sometimes you want the perfect thing to create or for your problem.

Instead of 1, ask yourself. Why not 100 ideas?

Don’t let your fusspot limit you. You’ll never know the 85th idea is 100 times better than your 3rd.

Get a pen and a paper and let that creativity flow.

13. Sit somewhere quiet

be somewhere quiet to be more creative

Last thing you want to be more creative is being in a hectic place. Your mind is all over the place.

Get up, grab your notebook and bounce.

I prefer places when there’s no one around me. Not even library. Well thats just me.
