Getting Those Wheels Turning

Posted by Nads on April 9, 2013


It finally feels like spring today, and my pup and I are welcoming these longer sun filled afternoons.  Looming in the back of my mind are a few significant to-do’s, things like taxes and spring cleaning, but I’m having a hard time finding some get up-and-go inspiration.  I’ve been doing some reading lately on the concept of momentum.  We’ve been trying to make some changes here in casa di nads of late and have spent quite a bit of time talking about how to break away from some of our regular habits and get a little more creative about doing some things differently.  I came across this infographic a couple of days ago and meant to send it along to my hubby who is in the ‘business’ of idea generation.  It’s one thing to be spontaneously creative but having to sparkle often and consistently has its own challenges and I was hoping to pass along a little pocket motivation.  I looked it over again and thought a lot of the suggestions could work for me too, possibly help to shake up my frame of mind and inspire some new ideas to ‘move’ forward on a couple of things.  Of course, I decided to share, so tell me what you think.  What gets you moving, how do you get those creative wheels turning?  Share?

  1. I love this, have pinned it and will print it! I find going for a brisk walk will help shake the cobwebs loose… I also tend to “sleep on it”, my brain will come up with a solution during sleep, apparently my Grandfather was the same… regardless, glad to know this is not just a me thing!

      I think it’s a good one to have on the wall – I’m surprised how much difference the little things make. I think in my sleep too, kinda scary!

    This is great! I definitely need to get away from the computer – I spend far too much time in front of one!

  3. I always find the best way to be creative is to stop trying to be creative…which is what many of the items in your infographic are about. I’d fail so, so miserably if I had to be creative on demand!

      i’m thinking that one thing to try is to capture your creativity when it happens – I just started to carry a notebook to try to write down ideas when they come up and then re-visit them later

    Great motivation! Love it 🙂

  5. Me and my pup are also welcoming Spring! I particularly like #1, #2 & #26 and I’m trying (really!) to work on #5. 🙂

  6. I have to walk or putter in the garden to revive the creative juices. Thanks for posting the other things too!

    Listing is a big one for me. I sit and brainstorm and write down all of the ideas that I have, even if they are crazy. Something starting with a little project helps me remember why I love projects and blogging so much.

      lists really work for me to – bullet points, lots of doodles and pictures, exclamation points and sub points. out of all of these, this really works for me too

    This is awesome. I pinned it.

    Wow! Just what I needed to give me a kick in the pants to finish some decor projects in my home. ;-). Thanks. Will pin this.

      Hopefully it was an polite inspirational kick 🙂 thanks for the pin, love the fact that posting some inspiration will be passed along

    Love the infographic! I find taking breaks helps! Getting out and enjoying the gorgeous Spring weather helps too! It’s so nice to have the warm sunshine out again. Winter is hopefully on it’s way out the door here in Canada! LOL I’m more inspired by gorgeous weather;)

    • Nads says:

      I am really affected by the weather too, the sunshine seems to be the best thing to get me going. I find I do my best thinking and inspiration when I’m just taking a walk now that its nicer out.
