Your creativity in 2023 will change if you do this

Everyone has the potential to be creative. 

What sets creative people apart from the non-creative is the fact that creative people use their creative skills on a daily basis. 

In other words, they practice it. 



Because it’s a part of their routine. 

If you want to become a better writer, a better leader, a better business owner, then you’ve got to start practicing. 

The law of diminishing returns on the creative process

The law of diminishing returns is an economic concept that refers to the point at which the level of benefits gained from an activity starts to decrease after a certain level of investment.

In the context of the creative process, the law of diminishing returns suggests that there is a point at which adding more resources, such as time, effort, or money, to the creative process will not result in a proportionate increase in the quality or value of the final product.

For example, if a designer spends a certain amount of time on a project, they may be able to create a high-quality design that meets the client’s needs.

However, if they continue to work on the project for an extended period of time, they may reach a point where the additional effort does not result in a significantly better design.

In this case, the law of diminishing returns would be in effect, as the designer would not be receiving a proportionate increase in benefits for their additional effort.

Overall, the law of diminishing returns suggests that it is important to carefully consider the investment of resources in the creative process, as there is a point at which the benefits of additional effort will start to decrease.

I’ve been writing through an idea a day. This is what I’ve learned.

Writing an idea a day has helped me dramatically sharpen my writing skills.

Here are 3 things that I learned from my daily writing habit

  • An idea is never too small or too insignificant to be of value to someone else
  • Always write down an idea or story that’s been on your mind. If you don’t, you’ll end up thinking about it non-stop until you do.
  • There’s no such thing as writer’s block

Have you been thinking about writing as a personal hobby or skill? 

If so, you might want to sign up for a potential writing community I want to drop in the near future. It hasn’t happened yet, but I want to get a sense of how many people would be interested in joining such a thing if it comes.

Sign up for it here:

Write like you urgently need to get a point across

There are only so many hours in a day. 

Whether you’re leading a meeting, taking a phone call, or working on a design project, there’s a point to be addressed. 

Address your point by asking the 2 questions: 

  1. What is it?
  2. And who is it for? 

Get to the point as soon as you can, where appropriate. 

If you could invest $3 in your communication skills a day, would you do it?

I’m not talking about stocks or passive income streams. 

I’m talking about working on yourself and making a commitment.

If you could make a promise to yourself that would make you proud in a year’s time, would you do it?

I’m not talking about making a sudden huge commitment today, right now. 

I’m talking about small, tiny wins that snowball into something much bigger and impactful, overtime. 

The idea is as follows.

I’m thinking of starting a writing community. 

It won’t be free (but it might be $3 a day for x amount of days). 

The details are still being rolled out, but I’d love to hear if anyone wants to join me for the ride.

If you’re anything like me, you’re a sucker for learning alongside great people. 

That’s what The Habit Factory has always been about.

If you want to be a part of the process and hear about the writing workshop when it comes, I’d love for you to sign up for our newsletter here

I hope to see you there. 

Writing not to make a buck, but to scratch a personal itch

Write whatever you want. 

No grades, no requirements, no need for perfect sentence structure.

Passion writing is an art. 

Passion writing is for anybody, if you’re willing to try it. 

What you’ll need: 

  • You
  • An empty document or notebook
  • An idea 
  • 15-20 minutes 

What you can’t bring: 

  • Your FOPO (fear of other people’s opinions) 
  • Your editor (that’s the version of you who thinks too much and keeps backspacing to delete your sentences)

Just write whatever has been on your mind.

Your life will change in 100 days. 

That is, if you do this once every day for 100 days. 

You’ll feel more creative. 

You’ll fine-tune your communication skills. 

You’ll learn how to tame your innermost critic. 

What more can you ask for? 

But, I’m not here to convince you of anything.

Because I did the same thing for 100 days and it worked on me. 

I’m thinking of putting together a writing community with The Habit Factory, but I first want to know who would want to join us. 

If you’re interested, you can sign up to hear updates on our writing community here:

I hope to see you there.

The best way I like to cure a lack of inspiration when writing, is to allow myself to produce bad writing

That means being okay when you don’t like your own content.

It also means being okay when others don’t like your content either. 

We all go through dull, grey, uninspiring periods.

Don’t let that stop you from writing something new. 

I’ve written a blog post every day for 2 and a half years. Here’s how I never got creative block

Every day I do my thing.

I write.

Writing is something that I do because I enjoy it. 

That’s not to say I never get stuck on my words.

I get stuck every day of the year. 

Every day when I’m faced with a blank page, I have a moment of stuck.

What do I write about? 

How am I going to write it? 

Will it be interesting?

Whatever might hold value.

By scribbling it out and editing later (and only once).

It will only be interesting to only a few.

I see creative block as a psychological barrier to one’s own production.

Nothing’s actually stopping you, but yourself.

All your tools are there, it’s just you (really).

The goal of the block is to make you stop.

Meanwhile, you should make every effort to not listen to it. 

Don’t stop for the block.
