The desire to create is knit within us. I get great satisfaction in taking obscure items and putting them together to create something that is entirely different and special.
I have always enjoyed the process of helping someone through the process of creating something new. Many folks get bogged down in details or they hit roadblocks that seem insurmountable.
Here are some keys to getting over the hump:
- Seek Counsel- Get some help from others. This does not necessarily require that you find an expert. Just find someone you trust or someone with an open mind. Often time the person with the least amount of baggage can give you really great advice.
- Don’t Force It- Creating something truly special usually takes time. This is not always the case- sometimes the pieces will fall into place quickly but this in not the norm. Be patient and you will be rewarded in the end.
- Be Practical- Creative folks tend to struggle with this. Creating something that is too hard, too expensive or restricted will not be easy to replicate. Think in terms of simplicity. Create something that can be duplicated easily.
- Use Technology- The internet provides an amazing portal for information. Spend some time researching solutions. It’s very likely that someone has followed a similar path and you can learn from the experience of others.
Creating is a uniquely rewarding experience. Spend some time today creating something exciting and new!
