As kids, we grow up as dreamers, thinking big and letting our imaginations run wild, but over time, our responsibilities begin to overlap shrinking our creative process in exchange other responsibilities.
There is however a system for starting your day. Here are a couple of pointers:
- Give yourself extra time after you wake up, read for half an hour, but not the news. Reading will stimulate your brain, and if you drink coffee (or anything caffeinated), also do that. I do know some people don’t like reading, and if this is you, make sure to set easy limits. Find a subject that interests you and get started.
- Go for a walk or run. This is where the caffeine comes in handy and will push you to work harder and burn more calories.
- Staying creative at all levels. Taking action, start small and work your way into something bigger.
- Keep a notebook or paper and pencil with you at all times. Ideas come and go all the time. Write them down, draw them out and filter out the bad ones later. Ideas will begin to build upon themselves and this is a great way to grow.
My goal in writing this is also to stay creative, grow my business and hopefully someday write a book.
