Isn't it easy to tell someone to "just be creative"? Whether you're trying to create something new and revolutionary or just want to come up with a local project, thinking differently is what makes you stand out. But just how does one think differently? Here are 10 simple ways to start now:
1). Relax. Don't forget to take breaks from work and do something that you enjoy. Whatever favorite activities you may have, take some time each day to do something unrelated to any of your projects.
2). Observe. Just as the greatest ideas can be found outdoors, they can also be seen indoors. Go for a walk, visit the mall, but wherever you choose to venture, remember to scrutinize the smallest details in your surroundings because there is always something new to be found.
3). Dream. When you're not observing or in any situation that requires your attention, don't be afraid to let your mind wander. Purposefully looking for inspiration might not always help, but daydreaming freely may.
