Creative Blocks: How to Work Through and Find Your Inspiration
7. Don't panic
Sometimes we get into a vicious cycle of worrying about the block and we end up perpetuating it. If all the above tips don't work, put something down on paper, canvas, etc., ignore whether it is good or bad and walk away. Come back in set period of time (e.g., one hour) and add to it without editing or questioning yourself. Repeat. Before too much time elapses, you will have either something that is great or something that won't work, allowing you to move your focus in to a different direction. The worst thing you can do is: nothing.
Creativity is an active, not a passive process. If you keep working at it, you can dissolve creative blocks and be productive. Warren Buffet says, "No matter how great the talent or effort, some things just take time." But these are a few ways you can speed up the process.
