How to Break Out of a Creative Rut


“There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.” — Edward de BonoAs part of the shift in direction here at BWYA, today we're going to look at something a bit different.I strongly believe creativity is an essential part of living a meaningful and authentic life. It's definitely my experience that the activities I find most fulfilling are those involving creativity - like writing and meaningful conversations - and although I might enjoy doing other less creative things, they just don't tick that box.Yet, more often than not, it's our creativity that's the first thing to go when we "grow up", become "adult" and get involved in the everyday business of "real life". Time for creative endeavours is pushed aside to make way for time to do "sensible" things, things we feel we should be doing, or feel we ought to have done already - things that are "proper".The capacity for creativity is always there for when we want to find it again, it just needs the right conditions. So I want to share this infographic on "How to Break Out of a Creative Rut" by Copyblogger because, as they say: "Every person has the ability to be creative."

Happy creating!

What are some of the things you do to express your creativity? I'd love to hear them.
