Ideas are flowing through your mind same as you breathe, it comes automatic and during the day you can have an average of 20 000 ideas and thoughts. But those are general ideas such as going to shopping by walk today, when you want to see movies or how you will get home today from work. If those ideas come naturally, where do the creative ideas come from? Do you need any special place an occasion to find the best of creative ideas? We asked our members where and how they get creative. Do you have any process or it just comes along? You will find out in this blog post.
B: Where do the creative ideas come from for you?
I personally don't know, because they just sometimes appear, when you do not expect them at all, so you have to be ready to write them down a build upon them.
B: Is the creativity just something which can be learned or it comes naturally to everybody?
I believe it comes natural and everybody is creative. It is just other aspects which appeal to amount and quality of our creative thoughts. You can set your mind to everything you want.
B: Does working in the creative environment sometimes kills your creativity?
I wouldn't say that. But sometimes it can slow down your flow of creative thoughts because you are affected by all great ideas which you see and then you can think that yours are not enough.
B: What is your favorite place to do creative work?
Airplane. Definitely. There is a good environment, you can just look through the windows and see the sky, you have no internet connection on most of the flight, so you are not disrupted by anything. Another place is my office when I put my earphones on and play some new pumping song. Then I can move my all my senses wherever I need them
B: Do you have any process of boosting your creativity?
After some time spent in the creative environment, I learned how to boost my creativity and what I need for starting that process. Of course it depends on the situation but in general, I start to write down all of my thoughts and then sort them with different methods. I usually also take a small walk and think. There is no universal process that works, you have to find your own!
N: Where do the creative ideas come from for you?
That’s a very tough question to answer. I can tell you where I am the most creative, or where can I let go all of the things. Basically, it’s with any sports activity or while walking. I love walking. If I can choose between waiting for a bus for 15 minutes and then take a 5-minute ride, or walk for 20-25 minutes, I always choose walking.
N: Is the creativity just something which can be learned or it comes naturally to everybody?
In my opinion, everyone is born creative. It’s the path and career you choose when you’re an adult. Some choose career paths where you do the same thing every day and are comfortable with that, others have to do something creative and new or they’ll go crazy.
N: Does working in the creative environment sometimes kills your creativity?
For me, creative environment is the best place to be. Coworking, open spaces, young creative hungry people, that’s what I like. BUT, I need to get music on and people can’t distract me with every little stupid thing.
N: What is your favorite place to do creative work?
Whoops just answered. Coworking, open spaces...
N: Do you have any process of boosting your creativity?
I always imagine the future of the company/product I’m building and when I see the super-duper bright future, I get motivated.
