Creative work is great. It’s fun. It’s always new.
But it can also be tedious. There are times when you stare into midair, waiting for inspiration to strike. And while inspiration is busy elsewhere, you secretly wish that you had some forms to fill out. Or invoices to check. You start shuffling things around your desk. You catch yourself checking your phone twice a minute. And – wondrously – this still doesn’t inspire you.
If you’ve ever been there, you know: Creativity cannot just be switched on and off like a lightbulb. However, psychology offers some tricks on how to get into a creative mindset.
