#058 – TIPS ON HOW TO BE A CREATIVE DESIGNER

We all are creative individuals. No matter our profession or cultural background, we are all involved in using our imagination to create something. We do not need to produce materially something to be creative, we need to be capable of visualising it, and we all are.

However, we have to recognise that sometimes we become rusted, and, unfortunately, we do not use the imagination to generate original ideas but to dig problems. 

If you need to get back on track, then follow these Mr D. Tail’s bits of advice below on how to be a creative one:

NETWORK WITH ENTHUSIASM: 
Talk and spent quality time with stimulating people, possibly with interests different from ours.

LISTEN PEOPLE’S OPINION:
Do not talk too much during a conversation, instead listen to other idea, ask questions and try to understand others’ point of view.

ACCEPT AND LEARN FROM MISTAKES:
Making a mistake is normal, not be worry too much about it. Learn from it and keep doing what you have to do. 

CHANGE YOUR MIND:
Be flexible in changing your mind, do not hold at any cost your point of view. Accept the fact that other ideas might work better.

SHARE YOUR IDEAS CONSTRUCTIVELY:
Share with other your ideas. Accept different opinions and try to understand them. 

RELAX
Do not take life too seriously. Enjoy the process and have a lot of fun.

#050 - RELIEVE YOURSELF FROM A BURDEN

As human being often we are caught in a whirl of negative thoughts. Of course, we want to get rid of them because they do not make us feel any good.

Here a contemplative exercise that will hopefully help to get rid of them.

It is an emotional issue, so we have work on our awareness. First try to visualize a plurality of anvils. The anvil is heavy and tough to lift, like our burdens. Think that each anvil represents one of your burdens.

Now visualizes one of the anvil lifted and taken away from your eyesight by a small helium balloon. It is important that you take your time to see the balloon slowly disappear. Repeat the exercise for all of the other anvils or burdens.

Mr. D. Tail tried the exercise and can happily confirmed that it worked.
