The human part of us like simple answers to complex problems. Deciphering how one can be more creative in the face of limited time, energy and resources is something that many feel like is an impossible task. This is probably why we like to read, share, and enjoy reading articles that highlight one or two secrets to be creative or building a creative culture in a company. It’s nice to feel that with one magic button, all our pains can be solved. This is also why many who ask me tips on how to be more creative expect me to give them a pre-formulated answer.

But I do not. Because while the fundamental foundation and experience of being creative can be similar, the details of how, when, where, and what differs per individual. You are all different individuals with different talents, curiosity and perspective. Why should the method of practising creativity be the same? This is why self-discovery plays a big role in creative thinking.

The more you understand yourself, the more you understand about your strengths, weaknesses, and how you may want to craft your creative hunger. And the more you understand yourself and where you want to be, the more motivated you will be to hone your creative skills and feel less frustrated when things are not perfect. This is why the journey of finding the perfect hour to be creative is more connected to understanding you as a being than a formulated answer.

With love,
