How To Be More Creative Without Losing Your Mind

I’m not referring to the kind of creativity that gets you a raise by taking your boss home in order to start sketching something down or doing the dishes by yourself.

It is extremely difficult to learn the true art of being creative without any kind of formal training (if you want a formal education to be productive). There is a tendency to go on the hunt for “the secret to creativity” by seeking out those who are already successful and look for an approach to getting creative that they employ. This can also get you a very limited view of what creative process or ideas are actually possible, because those who are successful often adopt very specific methods of working (or have other methods) in order to have a positive outcome. This can lead them to believe that they know exactly the way to get things done and what must be done in order to find success and be creative and they end up with a narrow view of what they actually do and can create.

It is important to realize that it is possible to have no formal experience or training and still achieve artistic excellence. A lot of young adults just give up and get a job doing whatever they can get their hands on. They do not even think of what they are doing as art work and never put in the time and effort in order to develop art into something of worth. While on the other side, those who have a much more formal approach to learning how to be more creative and discover what kind of creative work may be possible to be achieved through a disciplined process and what kinds of creativity may not work in this method and they develop their knowledge for this method.

The more you think about it, the more you realize that creative work cannot be attained without some form of training or experience. You have to spend some amount of time learning how to do what you are doing. If you have a job, you should spend a little bit of time learning things that get you out of the house and into the office. If you do this, you will end up with some kind of foundation in order to go from your job to your own personal work.

If you are serious about getting your own creative work done, you will need some kind of formal training or training in order to do it the right way. This training should not be “taught” to you, but rather learned from experience, either by doing it yourself or by going to workshops and schools that offer this kind of training. You should also do a lot of research. Read up on what people in general have done and learn how to learn from them.

It is important to understand in advance that the kind of training or formal learning that you will get from someone else will vary immensely from the kind of learning you are going to get from your own self. People who teach you are usually not very capable and most of them will not be able to teach you the way you need in order to be able to effectively teach you what you want to know. When learning to build something from parts, sometimes building the entire thing or even two parts is a much more effective way to go about doing something with a goal in mind and without having to spend years and years building it from scratch. In other words, a lot of people who have a lot of experience working in a certain industry will not understand how to teach the art and craft of being creative, they might not know how to teach how to build an instrument, but they will know how to teach others how to build an instrument, so when they start teaching their crafts, they are able to share what they have learned with everyone else in the industry. This is much more efficient and effective than teaching it to a master and having nothing to show, instead of teaching it to a small number of peers who might not have had the same experiences as you.

It is important to understand that there are ways of being creative without using any formal learning methods. In the end, you need to decide what kind of ways of being creative are right for you and when those methods help you to truly achieve your goals.
