As years, decades and centuries go by, the one thing we always seem to increase in is our ability to choose. Because there’s always more available for us to choose from.
Yet we always default to the same. The same restaurants, the same genre of music or books. The same hair cut. The same daily routine.
And then we wonder why we get stumped in coming up with creative solutions on the fly.
The unfamiliar activates new neutron connections in our brain and stimulates right brain thinking, where our creativity originates from.
So the cure for creative block? Try something new. A new place to eat. New music. New literature. A different daily routine. Even a new haircut, but don’t go crazy with that one.
