3 Tips on Moving Forward with Your Creative Ideas

I just got done “scoping”. That’s what the folks on the new social network “Periscope” call broadcasting live.

I asked my followers what I should blog about today for #motivationmonday (I wonder if that will help more people to read my post).

Let me back up. I actually don’t have any followers yet…that’s where you come in (que to “follow” me). Their ideas (when I say “their” I actually mean the one person that suggested the idea. Find him at rushvideos.com) were writing a blog post on “simplicity” and “where to begin in the creative process”.

I figured the first idea was too simple.

 

Involve Other People

If you follow me then you know that I value letting others in to my creative process. Heck I even got the idea for this blog post from another person.

You might want to snapchat, periscope, tweet, FB, IG (here’s mine from this morning) your ideas or lack of ideas. You’d be surprised by how your family, friends and social acquaintances want to help you in your creative endeavors.

Don’t be scared to ask for what you want and to say that “I need help”.

 

Get Down Your Ideas

Journal, write, sketch out, record your ideas. Everyday.

You don’t have to just write your thoughts out anymore. Grab your phone and create a note, recording or both. Get a manly journal or girly journal (so you actually want to write in it) and in a non-judgemental fashion, put down your ideas. Don’t think about. Just do it.

Do this for 7 minutes everyday and see how much more clarity you have as you move forward in your projects.

 

Be Vulnerable
