The next step in identifying your personal brand of creativity is to determine how you are currently creative.
Here’s the story.
Today, we continue the process of identifying your personal brand of creativity. Last week you visualized your creativity as a child, this week we are on to figuring out how you are currently creativity. Give me a minute to explain before you go getting all “I’m not creative” on me.
I’ll be honest, last week’s activity was most likely easier for you than this one – which doesn’t really makes sense. It should be more difficult to think about your creativity long ago, but more people have a problem talking about themselves in the present as a creative person.
Do any of these sound like you?
- You truly believe you aren’t creative.
- You acknowledge that you are a creative person, aren’t sure how.
- Maybe you know you are creative, but are ashamed of your creativity, because you believe it is not as “good” as other people’s creativity.
- You know you are creative and can tell you exactly how. If this is you, stop reading and pick back up with us next week.
So if any of the first three sounds like you, let’s get to making a list.
Title your list: How I am Currently Creative.
Think about how you spend you time over the course of a week.
- Are there any times when you are required to problem-solve? Whether it’s for your job or for your personal life, it doesn’t matter. Add it to your list.
- Do you make anything? It could be food, sewing or knitting a hat, or even….
- Do you generate ideas? This goes hand in hand with brainstorming, but you get the idea.
- Do you design anything? For your job? For your home?
Check out my list below. See how I included even the most random examples (making dinner).
Now, how do you want to be creative?
Don’t consider time, money, education, or anything else. Just think about how you would practice your creativity in an ideal world. Add it to the bottom of your page?
