33 Habits Of Highly Creative People

I came across this infographic and found that it leads to a fantastic resource that I must share with you. I’ve been exploring my own creativity for a while now and there are a lot of good tips here that I’m taking on board.

33 Habits Of Highly Creative People

33 Habits of Highly Creative People

  1. Just start something
  2. Get your ideas out in a tangible way (it makes room for new ones).
  3. Perfect your ideas through trial and error.
  4. Enjoy the process of your project.
  5. Don’t over-think or judge your initial work.
  6. Make ‘creating’ a priority in your schedule.
  7. Give yourself time to play at the beginning of a project.
  8. Write down every idea; don’t let any get away.
  9. Read a great book – something that challenges you.
  10. Build a reservoir of ideas + inspiration either in digital or analog form.
  11. Make a plan and stay true to your creative vision.
  12. Make time for what you love.
  13. Give yourself hours – not minutes – to create.
  14. Walk away from a project, come back and make revisions.
  15. Ideally, travel to a foreign city. In a pinch, a good run or  bike ride will do.
  16. Work on multiple projects at once to avoid getting hung up on one project.
  17. Keep experimenting; the best things come this way in art, work and life.
  18. Commit! Work on your craft every day – even if it’s only for 15 minutes.
  19. Find a theme you like and run with it. Then, edit it down to a few gems.
  20. People watch (everyone tells a story).
  21. Throw on some energizing music and take a dance break.
  22. Create a visual board of things that inspire you.
  23. Try a different routine.
  24. Don’t succumb to fear (talent is 90% drive).
  25. Build confidence through research.
  26. Accept failure as part of the process.
  27. Relax and get out of your head.
  28. Bounce ideas off a trusted friend.
  29. Push yourself out of your comfort zone.
  30. Don’t get wrapped up in what other people are doing.
  31. Discover when and where you are most productive.
  32. Get off your computer and get out your paints, or pens, or whatever medium you love.
  33. Design and create for yourself, and everything else will fall into place.

    Some great pointers here Corrine … I read such amazing stuff on your blog that I immediately want to implement but it gets lost in the way…I have to start bookmarking and then keep 15 mins aside to go through what I wanted to do & implement.. I must do that! Thanks for sharing this with everyone 🙂

    I am confused. Is this something you wrote a reblog?
