As a creative minded individual, I cannot repeat myself all of the time. Asking me to stick to a single style would be the end life. It would be similar as putting me in a straitjacket.

Limitations and specialties are nice and useful but they don’t mean doing the same thing over and over. That would be the opposite of creativity, to me. This would be a productivity rather than creativity.

We’re all on a journey. We have to listen to what makes us happy and what feels fulfilling to us, as unique individuals.

In a Box

As creatives, we have to be careful not to get trapped in a box.

We have to option to choose between blending in or standing out. The option to follow the trends or go agains’t them. The option to listen to all opinions or to ignore them. Of course, there is an in between to all of these options but, this can be a serious challenge. No matter what, in the end, we have the option to choose between fitting in a box,… or not.

Let’s be creative and embrace our uniqueness.

Taking Time

Today, I caught myself rushing through a task, I would normally enjoy. Even if I was having fun, I felt an urge to rush it. Why?

This is most likely caused by bad habits, and outside pressure of doing everything faster and faster. But, those are not good reasons, for me.

Taking time to do things. Taking a project through the steps of making. Make mistakes along the way, especially while creating something new. Try new ideas. Let it sit for a minute. Work on the details. Explore new tools. There are a million good reasons to slow down.

I remind myself to resist the temptation of rushing! There is no end to this game. You speed through this project and do the same with the next one. Then, what? Another one? Enjoy each step of the process and make it worthwhile. Have fun creating, not just achieving.
