Yuck. So you have to crop, resize, and color correct a ton of images today instead of starting on a new site design, or better yet, coming up with your next big idea? Instead of putting a more mundane task off for the easy out of Facebook, email, or IM, do this instead: jump in, give it your all, take your time, and most importantly embrace it. It’s too easy to get down on yourself.
When I get in a rut, I think about how fortunate I am being a designer. I work in a t-shirt and jeans. I listen to great music… and I get to hang around other creative people. Who else gets paid to do that? That in turn makes me happy, and happiness breeds creativity (at least it does for me). It’s truly a win-win situation.
If you make each project your best project, you will be more creative.
Sometimes it’s as simple as that.
