Stretch those muscles

According to this article (link to: written by Larry Kim founder of WordStream, creativity is very much like a muscle that needs to be “stretched, challenged, and occasionally pushed past its comfort zone.”

So what can we do to stretch those creative muscles? The author suggests that we:

  1. learn through collaboration;
  2. do something we love;
  3. find inspiration from other industries;
  4. unplug (or just do nothing);
  5. walk;
  6. set the right mood;
  7. use the six thinking hats technique;
  8. ask for advice or feedback;
  9. pick a terrible idea.

So what are you going to do next? I think I’ll pick a terrible idea and then see what happens! 😉
