Tips to Improve Creative Productivity

August 17, 2011

Here are some tips from Ian Peacock’s BBC exploration on Creative Genius.

Writer P.D. James advises a person to “read widely, learn from the best without copying, and go through life with all your senses open to experience. Find out what’s creative in yourself and enjoy it!”

Poet Laureate Sir Andrew Motion tells us to “have courage to take your mind into directions it hasn’t gone before. Read. Travel. Listen to people on the bus. Join in life; but look at it from a [personal] angle … realize that only you are you.”

Words of wisdom.
