Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

Part 2 of "Are You Just Procrastinating?"


It's easy to get get caught up in perfection and to hit creative roadblocks.


There are a few tactics that I use to combat creative fatigue, and procrastination.


One tactic is actually a mindset.


Learn to grow and foster a "Learning" mindset.


Understand that everything you do is ultimately an experiment.🔬 It's important to kick your thinking process into learning mode. You should never walk away thinking, "I failed." What makes a learning mindset so important?

  • Fear of failure is a key driver of procrastination. By thinking of learning instead of failing, you combat fear of failure.

  • Your assumptions are probably wrong.

  • Your audience will ultimately determine what's good and bad.

  • Testing multiple imperfect creative, copy, or whatever, at the same time will lead you to what works faster.

There Are Ways to Procrastinate without Procrastinating


I call this letting my thoughts "marinate." I am actively problem solving but it's all happening in my head. The "Ah HA!" moment can come from anywhere, so here are some activities that I do to try and jump start my brain:

  • 🏃‍♂️ Exercise - Cardio is best for me. I have even solved calculus math problems on runs.

  • Meditate.

  • 📝 Free writing or stream of consciousness writing. Literally start writing whatever you're thinking about.

  • If you're writing, write the 1st and last sentence of your piece.

  • 📖 read. Read. READ!

  • 🎶 Play music. This can be listening or actively playing an instrument or singing. I play the violin! 🎻
