Today’s Solutions: January 19, 2022

One of the greatest gifts you can give a person is the inspiration they need to get their creative juices flowing. That’s because creativity helps a person perceive the world in new ways, allowing them to produce creative solutions in all aspects of their life—whether it be on a canvas, a spreadsheet, inside a cultured kitchen pantry, or beyond.If you want to help someone find their creativity, there are many ways to go about it.

First off, you should expect the most of them. Find reasons to believe in the creative pursuit of the people around you, and clearly communicate your high expectations. Once you do this, check in with them regularly. This shows you genuinely care, which in turn can motivate and spark creativity.

Third, give them space to get creative. Whether you manage, coach, date, live with, or simply interact on a friendly basis with the person whom you aim to inspire, give them both time and physical space to create. And then, when they’re ready, hold space for them to foster creativity and share their creative aspirations, creative ideas, and projects with you. The aforementioned tips are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to inspiring creativity in others. To see more tips, check out this story here!
