Time – 5 Ways You Know You’re Wasting Time

By | Creative Techniques | No Comments

In this post I will cover 5 ways that you might be wasting time; more so with your creative ideas, and I will hopefully have the solution to each of these aspects.

Not to say that it is a bad thing to have a vast amount of ideas, but the more you think of new ideas, the more time you are wasting on a perfectly good idea you may have come up with in the first place. It is never a bad idea to have too many ideas, but it becomes a bad idea if you do not develop those ideas at all.

How Does Your Behaviour & Creativity Link?

By | Creative Techniques | 2 Comments

There can be huge link between your behaviour and creativity, if you let it happen.

We can however, use stressful times as an opportunity to find relief in new directions, try something new and/or use the negative energy to fuel something positive.

In such an interest, I’ve been researching tips and tricks to help handle stress.

I think the first thing to identify when discussing stress is that there are different types.

Covert Stress

Covert stress as its name suggests builds up with no clear warning and can occur in various ways. The most common factor that aids covert stress is lack of sleep. Unfortunately this can happen for various reasons such as your job, responsibilities or something as simple as an unorganised environment.

Covert stress is dangerous because usually it’s hard to detect until the last minute. Read More

You’ve got an idea, a project proposal, a way to do something but think or know someone else has already come up with the it, and then feel as though you’re a copy cat. Most of the time people will come up with the same solution to a common problem.  The difference in being creative and coming up with the same solution or result is due to adding a personal touch.

Now this is only a short post, but it is something worth thinking about. Ask yourself this question: Does the work you produce reflect your personality?

Make Things
