All the world's great movie posters and works of art weren't created by people who were playing it safe. They were created by people who weren't afraid to push the boundaries of what was accepted, of pushing their own abilities and imaginations to the limit. If you want to create something you can truly be proud of, you'll need to find a way to expand your creativity. If you're not sure how, the following exercises can help get your creative juices flowing.

Stream of Consciousness
It is often our own inner editor or mental filters that prevent us from being as creative as we like, so writing, speaking, drawing, or playing music in a stream of consciousness way can help us get past these blockages. When you sit down to write, draw, act, or play, banish all critical thinking. No cell phone tracking worries, no plans for next weekend, no to do lists. Let your subconscious dictate what you write, say, play, or draw, and you may be surprised to find there is a nugget of something wonderful down there.
Experiment with Limits
Blank canvases are often the most intimidating thing to an artist. Whether you paint, drawn, act, write, or play, having too many options can paralyze you, especially in the beginning of a project. Paradoxically, you can open the floodgates of creativity by imposing limits on yourself, such as only using instruments you might find at a wedding rental in Hamilton, only drawing straight lines, or avoiding the use of all pronouns. This technique is often used by school art teachers to give kids a place to start with their projects.
Try Something New
When you were learning Revit at work, you probably felt more knowledgeable and powerful because you were expanding your skill set. You can get the same feeling in your creative hobbies by branching out and trying a new medium. Painters could try writing, writers could try playing an instrument, musicians can sit down and create a scrapbook, and so on. You may find that you can adapt or use some of the things from another medium into the one you primarily work in.
Art, for people - at least for most of them - is a private, personal Endeavour. Many people don't even show their work to another person until it's finished. But if you want to expand your creativity, consider working on a project with a partner or in a group. The ideas and skills of the other person can change your thinking - and the project - in ways you never imagined possible. Just make sure to choose people you get along with and respect for their skills and abilities.
