My creative process- an update
There are times, actually most of the time, that there are many idea's in my mind. Idea's how the world can be improved, how businesses can spread messages better, how to tell people why a service and product helps them achieve a better quality of life. My mind really is conceptual so often I come up with marketing campagns, communication plans, how to streamline product development and awesome designs.
The thing is... They all are great idea's. It's not up to me to make all those idea's reality though. It would take a life-time to do that! So what I can do.. Is share the dynamics, and share the conceptual approach and the basics to you can apply it yourself to your projects! Which I will do and continue to do in the future. And on top of that I keep making space to work and co-create special projects at my passion Mirri Designs
I spoke before about the creativity of the heart, about day-to-day creativity and souls passion.
Lately I feel that the conceptual approach I have in my work and I use to help creative people and businesses isn't always something I use for my own passion. Very interesting discovery at least.
My own creative time is often the last thing on my neverending todo-list. That is not something that will last forever, cause without expressing my creativity I simply get tired, depressed and sick.
So I'm going to be my number 1 again. That means in a practically way to get a huge marker and my agenda and create time for me. Over time I learned more about my creation cycle. I need multiple days in a row to be able to manifest my idea's in a fast and effective way. An hour here and there doesn't work for me. Great for playing around but not for the deep creative play and flow I enter when I can zone out for days.
I need active creation time and time to let myself be inspired, to consume media; movies, books, social media, internet and intuively travel the ever expanding world wide web. Than I mix everything and express and create new things with different mediums. That brings me happiness. So that is what I will focus on.
The magic word!
