We’ve been taught that the left brain’s purpose is to calculate, criticize, and evaluate. Order, precision, and regularity are some of the virtues that we value most. These phrases don’t do anything to inspire the artist.
The right brain, while being located in the same approximate area as the left, is distinct. Time does not exist for the RB. These “wellness factories,” as it seems to be called, are the focus.
We humans are so enamored with all those legal and illicit narcotics that these small molecules resemble.
Think about the first time you realized you were running out of time. How did the past two hours go by so quickly? The time has flown by so quickly. Reflect on the time that was wasted. How were you feeling? Usually in a good mood. And irritated that the need of time had to be so brutally disrupted.
It’s safe to say you were engaged in some kind of creative endeavor.
Both the entrepreneur and the artist are in this group.
If you’re running your own company, you’re an entrepreneur by definition. You came up with a novel solution and took action on it. Entrepreneurs have a prodigious supply of inventiveness.
Often, after a firm is up and going, the “doer” (manager, technologist, bookkeeper, office nurturer, or “operator on the coal face”) steps in to take the entrepreneur’s place.
Creativity, like the naivety of your 18-year-old self, fades away after a lifetime of doing.
A true entrepreneur wouldn’t even think of doing that, handing up the reins of their business to others. But this isn’t about Richard and Bill. This conversation is about Tom, Susie and Harry alone. Most of them are small company entrepreneurs or sole proprietors.
There is nothing creative about being overworked, overwhelmed, or under financial stress.
Creativity vanishes like a vulnerable species of frog in a fragile wetland when you’re strained to the limit.
The relationship between tension and inventiveness
Contrary to popular belief, stress does not promote creativity. Creative aphrodisiac: a deadline is an excellent source of stress.
A bullet-nosed, rapid train’s imagination usually rises and stops for no one when you have just 24 hours to create the presentation that will halt them in their tracks.
How to tap into one’s own imagination
What can you do on a daily basis to access your creativity? ‘Eureka’ ideas come to us in the middle of the night, when we’re taking a shower in the morning, and while we’re waiting at a traffic signal. In any other case, we’d still be scrounging about in the marsh looking for nourishment.
Don’t let yourself be deprived. Relax and unwind for two hours with some RB creative therapy. As a result, you’ll likely do a lot more work than you otherwise would have.
Right-brain time. Short and sweet, then.
1. Recognize the significance of creativity and provide room for it. That requires self-discipline, which, by the way, is a trademark of the LB.
It’s up to you how much space you need to appreciate the RB. Clear your mind, turn off your cell phone, put on some relaxing music, and set aside some time for relaxation techniques like meditating or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).
Simply do what you’ve been putting off because LB concluded that other things were much more essential – most likely getting money—and be in that place.
As soon as you get permission from LB, RB will have a ball. In order to keep your creative juices flowing, you needn’t be concerned. Like GI paratroopers, those endorphins will descend on your system.
Write down what you’ve accomplished throughout those hours for a brief period of time. The album will astound you.
Make it a routine.
The think tank’s code of conduct
Another point. Engage people in the process of coming up with new ideas. The regulations for conducting a creative think tank are fairly strict. Don’t be lazy about them.
Attendees will learn that you and your group are genuinely capable of resolving just about any problem. As a snail’s eyestalk grows, so does your creative output, leaving you irritated and dissatisfied. Both emotions are not favorable to creativity.
Aftermath: Content Management
I’ll confess that this is a little off the beaten path. But this week, it was content curation that sparked my imagination. Why?
Overwhelm, overload, and a crepe suzette-like reality return.
Using the internet, we are creating and spreading enormous amounts of very valuable intellectual property. It seems that our efforts are now undervalued, in light of the fact that everyone else on the earth is also overburdened and stretched thin.
That’s why content curation is so important. In this way, we might become the curators of our own personal art gallery.
The finest of what our specialty has to offer is broken down into bite-sized chunks, and we become the cherry pickers. As an illustration of it, here is a screenshot! Toffee with a unique twist. Enough to cling to our sense of well-being.
You’d be so delighted to be given creative nibbles instead of a heavy shake every day in our overworked lives.
For your clients, this is a no-brainer.
It’s worth pondering. As a service to you and your customers. This is a fantastic idea. Creative, simple, and potentially quite powerful for those who use it correctly…
This month, I’ll be putting Why You Must Blog to the test and pursuing content curation innovation, so if you’d like to follow along, simply subscribe at the top of the page.
