Inspiration comes in so many forms. Some of the most unrelated things will spawn an idea for me. shifting my perspective of things seems to work the best.
When I was a kid, I used to love laying on my back to hang my head upside down over the side of the bed and pretend what it would be like to walk on the ceiling. Seeing things from a different viewpoint holds revelations.
Here are a couple of ways you can shift your perspective and get a new outlook that might inspire you:
- The next time you go out, imagine yourself seeing through the eyes of someone else. This is a great trick for writers, too.
- Take a class taught by someone new on something you already know how to do and look at it through the lens of their experience. I take classes and online workshops all the time on things that I already do. Despite having been doing allthethings for 33 years, I like refreshing my perspective and seeing if there’s a way to improve. Sometimes I find something I hadn’t thought of. It also help keep you humble.
Thank you for being here. I welcome constructive criticism, so let me know what you see through your eyes!
