— Keep a box labeled for each project. Toss everything in the box, and don’t worry about misplacing things or ideas.
from Amy Ng of Pikaland
— Choose just one creative aim for the day. What one creative project can you begin/continue/finish today?
from Dan Goodwin’s Wakeful Ways at A Big Creative Yes
— Think on paper. With a bunch of loose paper, start jotting ideas down. Here are four benefits of writing by hand.
from Jacob Cass at Just Creative Design

She compiled these suggestions from a number of sources.
- from Alison Motluk: “Seek out creative company. The best ideas are forged not in moments of solitary genius, but during exchanges with trusted colleagues.” [Note: Austin Kleon calls this creative company a ‘scenius‘.]
- from Jacob Cass at Just Creative Designs: “Mindmap. Whether you use key words, images, colours, a hierarchy system, numbers, outlines, circles or random words, mindmapping gets your creative juices flowing.”
- from Steve Pavlina: “Architect a worthy challenge. If a task is too easy, you don’t need to be particularly creative, so your creative self will simply say, “You can manage this one without me.”
