This month the Stonefire Apartments Blog has a couple of ideas to help you stretch your creative muscles. We hope that our tips help you further your creative (or career) ambitions. Becoming a more creative person isn’t just useful if you’re an artist or a writer — creativity can help anyone out with their goals or career!
Learn Something New
Learning something new is a great way to explore your creativity. You never know where your next great idea is going to come from. Don’t be afraid to pick up a book on something new, attend a lecture on something you’ve never heard of, or to ask questions. Your questions will help you come up with new ideas and think in new ways.
Talk to Someone
It can be useful to speak with someone who has a similar goal as you. You can help each other come up with ideas, support each other, and help each other learn things that you might not discover on your own. Consider joining up with a group of people — some of whom may have very different ideas from you — as well. Speaking to other people will help you become a more open person and help you think of old ideas in a new light.
Brainstorm different ideas on your own. Take some time each week to think about your next business venture, piece of art, or DIY project. What do you need to do to accomplish your project or goal? Take notes on everything that you need to do, the logistics of the problem, and then start brainstorming! You never know what you’ll come up with.
We recommend taking some time to explore your city this month. Go out of your way to discover new things about your hometown. Go out to a new restaurant, visit an art exhibit, take a cooking class, or take a hike on some local trails. There’s no limit to what you could learn or discover.
