How To Be Creative # 01: Surround Yourself With Good Company

We’re all about promoting creativity. It’s what we live to do and that’s why we’re launching a new series on what we know will help you make awesome. It’s in your reach, but like anything sometimes you just need a little nudge. Inertia’s a bitch like that.

Being creative is about sharing ideas. So much so that any of us are only as creative as the company we keep. By sharing ideas, we’re clued in on the minds of others from different backgrounds, which makes us more likely to foster great ideas. It doesn’t have to be mind blowing like time travel or inventing the electric blanket mobile. Sometimes being creative is simply taking an idea one step further or applying a concept differently.

Co-working is a great way to surround yourself with a diverse group of people. It’s blown up on a worldwide scale, but you don’t really even have to be that organized or throw down hundreds of dollars a month on a desk. Who do you know in your life that has a really cool job or interesting side project? Strike up a conversation, take them to coffee or lunch, and get them talking about their passions. You’ll be surprised how much hearing the excitement in their voice will lift you up.
