The Slight Edge : Turning Simple Disciples into Massive Success by Jeff Olson
If you are having a hard time being creative, you are not alone. There are “good days” for creative people, and then there are “not so good days” for the creative people.
By good days I mean, when ideas are flowing in, you have more design ideas than you actually require. Your brain is all charged up. Basically, life is good. But then, there are not so good design days too. The days when there is a shortage of ideas, and you are struggling to come up with a single design. You end up sitting at the desk for hours at a stretch, but nothing works. You are having difficulty to please you, client or boss.
Yes, we all have been through it. It’s part of a designer’s life, right? But what can you do to overcome the drained and anxious feeling you have on “not so good” design days? How can you be more creative and come up with decent ideas?
