Try not to expect too much from a creative project in its early stages; you may have to generate several drafts before hitting upon the right formula. Give yourself gentle praise and encouragement in the process. Dwelling on mistakes will only make it harder to achieve your vision. Itâs also wise to keep this work secret from an ultra-critical neighbor, colleague, or relative. Although you respect this individualâs taste, you must admit that their insults can be deflating. Thereâs a big difference between evaluating work and creating it. As a creator, you must protect your ego. A friend or co-worker is doing something exciting with their life, and you want to be doing this, too. So what’s stopping you? You don’t need any more resources than you already have. Just up your creativity and throw in a little bit of drive. What’s the best way to enliven your creativity and drive? Mix it up with different types of people! Even if you have to do it online, start some mind-expanding conversations.
