For some people, creativity comes as natural as waking up in the morning. Then, there’s the rest of us.
In the last 7 days, I’ve had to put the final touches on my first book, create a business plan from scratch, and write a total of 12 articles for clients. In the midst of more creative work, the artistic liberties I used to take – sitting around all afternoon waiting for an idea or inspiration to show up – just don’t fly anymore. With the help of a book or two and a couple good conversations with friends, I’m slowly learning how to fight, strategize, and design my schedule for more creative inspiration and flow.
