Isn’t coffee just one of the most wonderful things ever invented? Now I know it’s not for everyone, but I do talk to a fair amount of the photographers who somewhat live on that stuff.
I’m not necessarily a morning person, but I don’t have any issues with it. It’s fine, really. But I can honestly say, that time before I’ve had my first cup, and then after I’ve had that miraculous beverage… two totally different ways of existing.
With coffee I’m clearly more focused, more motivated and yes, I am more likely to be creative.
Wow, News Flash Capt. Obvious!
Okay, I know this is no great revelation; I’m not announcing some great breakthrough that will change society, but I do hear from a fair amount of creatives that, well, they find they’re often a hard time being creative these days. Do you find this to be true for you?
If so, maybe pour your self a strong cup-o-Joe and see if that doesn’t help. I’m not suggesting that this will supercharge your creative muscle, but it really does help in my case. And I know it’s already probably an obvious fix for many of you, probably preaching to the choir. But I’m always trying to think of anything that I can share to help in this area. I always get so much inspiration from the work you guys are sharing online, I just want to give back in anyway I can.
What works for you?
If not coffee, what are some things that you find helpful in this area? I’m always interested in learning new things.
