Do you sometimes feel a struggle inside when you’re working, not being able to bust free? Where, even though you have good intentions, you are not able to create? You feel like your creativity is harmed, and procrastination is something that you can’t avoid – ending up checking your Facebook feed and your Twitter stream impulsively all the time.
Yesterday, I met an internet friend and she said something that made so much sense to me. She said that sometimes she felt like she was just too spoiled. Too cozy. And things were too good to change them.
Factors That Affect Your Creativity
Sometimes it seems like we are harming our creativity instead of supporting it. There are so many distractions out there so it’s only natural to find it difficult to balance our hobbies and business management.
Creativity comes from chaos
For me, my creativity comes from chaos. Even though I thrive in chaos, I need it. With chaos, I get inspired to fix things up and explain my approaches to business. I think it’s, in particular, wise for people and businesses alike to enjoy the chaos. Maybe even ask us how much we would be able to change the world if everything were perfect and in order? So if you want to harm your creativity make everything nice. Nothing to riot against
Comparing yourself to others
I am personally really great at comparing myself to others. It’s hard for me not to do it. Maybe everybody in the world feels the same way. Social media hasn’t helped this at all for me because there nothing seems normal. Most of it seems like we need to see on the dark side of the ‘moon’ and remember that things are not at all what they look like there.
It goes hand in hand with ‘comparing yourself to others’. Belittling is easy, and it’s an absolute creativity killer to the point of not being able to think curly. Love yourself! You’re powerful. And if you don’t think so, it makes it so much harder to get shit done.
