3 Simple Habits of Seriously Creative People (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 205)
“A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.”
— Gerald G. Jampolsky
Creativity can solve nearly every problem. As long as the person who is intent on doing the solving is courageous enough to act on his instincts. Creativity defeats habit and defines what it means to be original. Being original isn’t always the magic. It’s being able to see the same things everyone else sees in a different way and improving upon that vision. Creativity — the act of being creative — holds the power to overcome everything.
Here are 3 habits of seriously creative people:
1. They let ideas carry them down different paths.
Seriously creative people are enchanted by amazing ideas. They get really happy when they’ve discovered something or thought of something new. They may very well go off on several adventures down a variety of different paths just to see what they find.
2. They love to change things up.
Routine gets very boring for seriously creative people. They embrace a diversity of experiences and find brilliance in commonality. They like to change things up, begin at the end, start at the bottom, and see what they can find, change, or improve. They have a tendency to avoid anything seems mundane in the slightest and habit is not their cup of tea.
3. They practice mindfulness.
For seriously creative people, their work depends on having a clear and focused mind. It really doesn’t matter if the overall environment is palatable for creative work. Science supports the fact that practicing mindfulness daily can increase the brain’s ability to reduce stress, beat anxiety, and improve one’s mental state which leads to better creative work all around.
