Motivation Notebook (From YODspica Ltd Blog Group)
As creative people, we’re always coming up with great ideas. The problem is finding our record of those ideas when we need them.
Because we create one design after another, we’re not always on the ball. Burning out is easy and a huge inspiration killer.
We have to find a way to call up that motivation and inspiration on demand. Keeping a notebook of ideas and encouraging thoughts is a great way to do this.
Such a notebook could include sketches, written ideas, sources of inspiration, magazine clippings, book references and anything else.
It might also help to write down what has motivated you in the past; simply reading past experiences can be encouragement enough.
