Creativity tip: be honest

People often think of creativity as making something up. Making something up is also how people describe telling a lie.

Instead of putting all that effort into making something up, the next time your stuck just tell the truth. Set aside the idea of trying to please other people or trying to appeal to them.  Be completely honest with yourself.

It isn’t easy to be honest, but certainly it’s less effort than making something up.

Once you know how you feel about something, you can start to decide the best style to express it.

The truth will make you unique. Trying to say what you think people want to hear will make you mediocre.
