How to be a creative person?
What to do if you are out of ideas?
You were born to be creative. It’s a skill, which needs to be learned and practiced.
You have a creative soul. Look at the world as an artist. Everything was already created before us. There are a few steps how to be creative, get inspired and don’t get stuck even when you run out of ideas.
To create something “new”:
- Look around
- Think about what you like
- Find your inspiration
- Create your own version of that
“First, figure out what’s worth stealing, then move on to the next thing.”
– Austin Kleon
Whoever you are the artist, entrepreneur or a life-lover start to collect ideas which inspire you and which you would like to realize. That can be any pictures, phrases or subjects.
In design and photography, it calls a mood board. Make the notes about everything, which will help you to create your final picture. Then put your ideas into the action.

You may hear: do, create or write about what you know. Sometimes it doesn’t work. Instead, try to work on what you like.
One more simple advice: if you don’t have an inspiration – google it! Google your dreams, your problems, google any questions.
Written in a positive, creative style, the book shares the idea that there is nothing original in the world. The author wrote it as the tips for the previous version of himself.
