Am I The Rational Creative?

Can one mistake hinder all of your creative impulse and ambition? What kind of mistake would that be? Where does the power to recuperate its backlash come from?

These are the sort of questions most creatives are compelled to answer. Whether they work in creative agencies. Or even as freelance writers or freelance illustrators. We’re so comfortable to answer questions within our framework, we lose sight of the real trouble at hand.

What I’m talking about here is the value of ideas, in general. As a content writer, I often find myself inspiring action, but to what extent, I cannot comprehend. A mistake reveals my insecurities. My flight or fight response gets activated. Should I do another or make my current fault flawless? It’s a constant maze that makes me smile, cry, scream, and wonder.

“You must not let it hinder your creative flow”, my power of creativity tells me.

I’ve predetermined my powers on the basis of the kind of knowledge I acquire by reading and lots of reading. It’s not something I’m afraid to pursue, acquiring knowledge through articles and videos I mean. Especially when social interaction is one of the most effective and productive ways to increase knowledge. My story is a bit different.

The clear perspective of my life is my inevitable approach to redefining the subject of creativity. The power that unpredictably puzzles me into the fear of never moving forward. Remaining stagnant is never a good thing. And why shouldn’t it be?

Everywhere you look, the abstraction of objects, behavior, and experiences never remain as they were when they took form. Well, it’s simple to imply that the biggest mistake occurs when you stop at either nothing or everything. That means when you don’t learn at all. What’s next?

What we don’t say to each other is the inevitable experience of trying too hard. Trying too hard to stay informed, to remain fresh with ideas, and to be unpredictable. Our behavior takes form of that functional and, sometimes, too overwhelming brain we carry around. It’s not easy. But it doesn’t feel so difficult either.

That’s to say that nothing really kills creativity apart from the fundamental hypothesis of substance abuse, idleness, and lack of information flow in our heads. If we don’t read, we listen to music, if we don’t do that, we have something that we constantly feed our brains with to remain creative. Never let that creative juice stop. It’s a firm decree.

So, am I the rational creative?

The work we do is intended to strike a response. Any handy piece of advice is considered wisdom or crap. There’s no telling of success or failure because both are building blocks. A temporary state of inspiration is often filled with new ideas and conversations, but how?

The concept of delivering more when it’s demanded is simple. But in that process, we’re losing our social production quality of life. That means, content is becoming more ambiguous and those on the other side of the screen, the ones reading that content and inspiring action like it’s a never-ending spectrum, are contradicting.

It’s bewildering who’s the creator and who’s the consumer. Are you both? Of course, you are. But when are you taking the form of one while trampling on the other?

The Brainstorming Argument

Why brainstorming is opting out for creative thinking. And what can we do to adopt effective brainstorming sessions.

Opening for a good brainstorming session has become monotonous yet effective in the process for creating of solutions for problems in any business. Since “brainstorming” has become a dirty word in the business world, people are choosing to opt out of this method that has existed since its discovery back in the 1940s, by an advertising executive, Alex Osborn. This method was parallel to the encouragement of individual perspective in group meetings and the facilitation of a professional and creative environment for growth and proper office establishments. What it means that by conducting a brainstorming session, one can easily express one’s idea without the fear of judgment by those around him/her, being able to speak correctly and expressively in any crowd or possessing the ability push through problems and ease out hundreds of solutions without any office mishaps. It seems like a straightforward and transparent method that any business can embrace for the benefit of their outreach efforts; but lately, this method is considered unnecessary and short-sighted because individual mind has expanded to boundaries unimaginable and we prefer to think alone than think with a big crowd.

Keeping a good, comfortable and friendly office environment calls for a healthy brainstorming session, definitely! It should not be enough to indulge in occasional office trips or people gossip near the window or water cooler for any business because that doesn’t involve the people that you’re working with into the cycle of brand growth and innovation, instead it just builds more personal relationships around you. It’s time you make conversations that are more about your business and what you’re taking forward.

I will suggest only 1 proven way to give impulse to a good brainstorming session that will yield out-and-out results, which you may not use for one purpose, but for many others:

Prep yourself fitter before the brainstorming meeting.

Now, you may say that if I prep myself before the brainstorming meeting, I shouldn’t be in that meeting at all because I’m handling the creative thinking bit all by myself. However effective that alone study may be, it is almost better to have a healthy discussion about a solution to a problem, or an idea with a crowd because that’s not just about you or what your brain has come up with, that’s about everyone in that small conference room and which means more than one brains!You tend to think faster, exchange ideas better and react more appropriately when you’re working or “brainstorming” with a crowd. And if you’re familiar with what you’re going to brainstorm about in the next scheduled meeting beforehand, you can be of great help in-and-out of such conundrums. This way everyone around you is going to accept expressed ideas with a different perspective and even criticize about it with facts and facts only. So, you can ditch the “no criticism and fear of judgment” shred altogether and be more confident in any brainstorming session, ever!
