How To Bring Innovation Into Your Life. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing a few tips on how to bring innovation into your life. If you’ve ever marvelled at somebody’s creative prowess, guess what? You can create and innovate too. It just takes time. Everyone is born creative. The box of crayons in kindergarten was not limited to those who possessed potential; because the truth is, everybody has potential.
Do you know how long it took to learn to ride a bike or drive or never to repeat the same mistake?
It’s the same with innovation.
It takes a bit of practice and a lot of time before this mind function comes easily when called.
How To Bring Innovation Into Your Life
Don’t Listen To What Other People Say
Follow the beat of your drum. Allowing for the input of other people will only bring cacophony to the music you are trying to make. If you have an original idea, don’t waste your time and effort trying to make people understand. They won’t. And the help you will probably get comes from negative feedback. If all those geniuses listened to their peers, we would probably still live in the middle ages.
Spend Time On It
I cannot stress that enough, although please do not mistake this tip for telling you to quit your day job entirely. Do not. This involves some tricky time management, but with a bit of discipline, you’ll be able to squeeze both in.
Exercise. Take A Walk. Run A Mile Or Two
Send all those endorphins coursing through your veins. Exercising clears and relaxes your mind and allows anything to pop up.
Record Your Dreams
Aren’t some of them just the craziest things your conscious mind would never have thought of? If you’ve had these dreams before, and I’m sure have, this only shows you the untapped innovative power you have. So jot down those notes. Those dreams may create a creative spark in you.
Find Your Style
You can always tell a Van Gogh from a Matisse. You’ll know Hemingway wrote something by choice of words on the paper. So it is the same with you. People will appreciate your innovation more because it is uniquely yours, and no one else would have thought of what you were thinking. That will let people see how valuable an asset you are.
Don’t Hide Behind Nifty Gadgets Or Tools
You don’t need the most expensive paints to produce a masterpiece—the same way with writing. You don’t need expensive fountain pens or smooth paper for a bestseller. J.K. Rowling wrote the first book of the Harry Potter Series on bits of tissue. So what if you’ve got an expensive SLR camera if you’re a crappy photographer? Who cares if you’ve got a laptop if you can’t write? The artist reduces the number of tools he has as he gets better at his craft: he knows what works and doesn’t.
Nothing Will Work Without Passion
What wakes you up in the mornings? What keeps the flame burning? And What is the one thing you’ll die if you don’t do? Sometimes people with talent are overtaken by the people who want it more. Think of the hare and the tortoise. Ellen Degeneres once said that if you’re not doing something you want to do, you don’t want to do it. And that’s true. Sometimes you want something so wrong you become virtually unstoppable. And that is passion. Passion will keep you going.
Don’t Worry About Inspiration
You can’t force it; inspiration hits when you least expect it to. For those unpredictable yet inevitable moments, you should prepare. An idea could strike you on the subway, yet alas, you poor unfortunate soul, you have no sheet of paper to scribble down a thought that could change the world. Avoid these disasters. Have a pen and paper within your arm’s reach at all times.
I hope this article has helped you bring more innovation into your life. Remember that you’re doing these things for your satisfaction, not anybody else’s. But soon enough, they will notice, and everything should snowball from there.
I hope you enjoyed that.
Yes this is so important especially when we want to set up to achieve goals for ourselves!
definitely passion is so key.. and your post reminded me to work on a project 🙂
Yes! It’s so important to keep all of these in mind when reaching your goals!
Passion is what got me in this industry.
I didn’t know how to draw or paint when I was little. I always thought I wasn’t artistic. It is only within the past few years that I discovered how creative I can get and how I have so much passion for it. Now I am dead set on pursuing it!
This is great! I love being creative. Lots of trial/error and testing for sure! I think to be successful, you just need to start and as long as you keep learning and improving along the way, you’ll get there in no time! Thank you for sharing x
Yes! Passion and inspiration are key! I was (not so long ago) at a job that literally sucked my soul! I FINALLY left and started blogging/ being a SAHM and I am INSPIRED and MOTIVATED again!
Passion is key! If you don’t feel you can do and love doing it, you won’t succeed at it! Great advice.
