Creativity is one of the most challenging beasts to wrangle. Especially when there are deadlines involved. How do you go about staying creative on a daily basis? This article by David DiSalvo, writing for Forbes, highlights some key ideas that challenge us in the pursuit of creativity. It's a lengthier read, but definitely worth it. The article helps to provide some insight on fostering creativity naturally. Here is one of my favorite points:

Even when we can outwit our brain’s threat-alert system, it’s still difficult to find what the late, great management philosopher Peter Drucker advised we must find to be effective in any capacity: “chunks of time.” Spurts of time riddled with interruptions aren’t conducive to creativity because each time our focus is wrecked, we struggle to get back to the point we’d reached in our creative “flow” (a term coined by psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi). Creativity isn’t like restarting a blu ray disk and picking up exactly where we left off. A great deal of energy went into getting to that place, and we must expend more energy to get into it again.

Be sure to to check out the article in its entirety and share it with your friends.
