33 ways to stay creative

I found this list in a blog ( . To my mind, it is more than a simple collection of rules to keep one creative. It's a kinda way of life. It's some advice to lead a happier day-to-day life. I just like them. Here they are:

  1. Make lists
  2. Carry a notebook everywhere
  3. Try free writing
  4. Get away from the computer
  5. Be otherwordly (whatever that means !)
  6. Quit beating yourself up
  7. Take breaks
  8. Sing in the shower
  9. Drink coffe or tea (or any drink you like, but go easy on the booze ;))
  10. Know your roots
  11. Listen to new music (but don't forget good oldies)
  12. Be open
  13. Surround yourself with creative people (I tend to replace "creative" by loving, caring, inspiring)
  14. Get feedback (and pay attention to it!)
  15. Collaborate
  16. Don't give up (Amen!)
  17. Practice, practice, practice (Hallelujah!)
  18. Allow yourself to make mistakes
  19. Go somewhere new
  20. Watch foreign films (I couldn't agree more)
  21. Count your blessings (Oh yeah)
  22. Get lots of rest
  23. Take risks
  24. Break the rules
  25. Do more of what makes you happy (nod)
  26. Don't force it
  27. Read a page of the dictionary (keep learning, no matter how)
  28. Create a framework
  29. Stop trying to be someone else's perfect (stop trying to be perfect altogether)
  30. Got an idea? Write it down
  31. Clean your worplace (and the rest...)
  32. Have fun
  33. Finish something
