When a creative block hits you in unexpected ways, you seek inspiration from unexpected quarters. Yes, that’s right. You get inspired by places you least expected to. Okay, you’ll argue you’ve been there and done that.
Yet it did not hit you like an avalanche-like you expected it to. We understand your skepticism. But as we said, you’ll be surprised how everyday mundane things can inspire you to attain the impossible. Please sit back and relax. We will tell you all about the five places you never thought would help you get rid of the creative block!
Old Work, New Idea!
Sometimes revisiting old work helps! You may not be too proud of it, to begin with, and believe that you have improved over time. But just by looking at your old work and can rekindle a new idea: a stray thought, a forgotten concept, anything that can give you a fresh perspective. Well, maybe it did not spark a new idea. However, now it can. We sometimes seek our old diaries, rummaging through old memories makes us cringe sometimes and sometimes augments a fresh train of thought. Pursuing it may finally lead you to somewhere concrete.
A wiser and experienced, you can bring new ideas to the table, and you know what you’ll be stealing from you, so technically you aren’t ripping it off from somewhere else. When we consider new concepts, we think of old outfits, old home decor, old outfits, and works. When you revisit the old concepts, you feel re-inspired to create an all-new inspiring concept.
Watching the World Go By
Reading a book, observing people in a busy cafe are some of the things that enhance our creativity. You can seek inspiration just by looking at human-made or nature-made objects. Also, inspiration does not necessarily come from created tangible things. It can come to you just by observing something intangible. Take a bus and observe people riding in that bus, or listen to stray conversations at a busy park. People watching can give you a plethora of ideas, pick on mundane stories, twist it, top it off with healthy doses of creativity, and get something utterly charming and unique.
History has such a fascinating part to it, and you can glean so much from the past. It is an untapped resource, and you can learn so much from varied avenues. Look into the time you find bewitching. We find inspiration from the sixties. Fashion intrigues us and inspires us to the extent that it makes us achieve something unique: old fashion and old vehicles. Old advertisements can take your mind to unexpected places. As we said, the past could teach you so many things you’ll be inspired and rewarded.
Seeking Inspiration From Different Industries
Whenever we think of inspiration, we put ourselves in a box and compartmentalize our thoughts. We should rather go ahead and seek from other industries and make that from industries with which you share zero similarities. Expand your areas of interests and hobbies, and you pick up a skill or idea that can help bend the norm to achieve something new.
So, don’t trap yourself into a self-created bubble. Instead, find ways to improve by researching nutrition, fitness, travel, housekeeping, relationship the works. Just research more, find a topic that catches your attention, dive into it, and learn some amazing things. Learn the key things that will help you grow in your chosen field, such as how they share information, how they market their brand and their innovative ways of creating things?
Read, Write, and Repeat
We agree visual sources are compelling ways of inspiring you. But there are other ways of doing the same such as the written word. Sometimes our thoughts are continually jostling for primacy struggling to find complete formations, so it is important to pen down your thoughts. It gives you clarity and the potential to add to them to make it more meaningful. Yes, writing sorts out our thoughts, reigning in a cluster of unruly thoughts that sometimes manage to escape our minds’ clutches. Do, it write it out every time you think of something new, it may not make sense just yet but maybe a few hours later, who knows?
