Over creativity helps one to bring forward ideas from various angles in order to tackle an issue. However, too many ideas may contribute to vague loosely defined ideas which are either executed half way or stays as an idea. Hence, an over creative mind needs a certain level of discipline or control to ensure that the ideas churned will contribute to positive growth. So, how to control over-creative mind?
First, one needs to maintain a habit of jotting down all important ideas that comes through their mind. This is crucial to keep track of creative ideas that may appear in the spur of a moment or triggered by certain situation. It will also assist one to evaluate the feasibility of the ideas by going through the ideas at a convenient time. A better way at evaluating merits of these ideas is to share them online on a bulletin board or forum for others to deliberate further on it.
Controlling an over active mind also involves the ability to stay grounded to one or more particular projects until it is completed. Individuals with high creativity may jump from one project to the next one without completing any of them due to the attraction that their mind has over novel ideas. Thus, it will help to have a priority list that helps such individuals to focus on their current projects until its completion. New ideas must be written down in a specific notebook so that it can read later.
One of the biggest challenges of being a web designer with over creative mind is having a burst of brilliant ideas while working on a current project. The desire to put the current project aside and to quickly start on the brilliant idea will be overwhelming. It can jeopardize one’s concentration and attentiveness in completing the tasks at hand. At the same time, the brilliant ideas will be continuously plaguing the mind under they were given due attention. In such instances, one can quickly do a rough sketch of the brilliant ideas to satisfy the initial venting out distraction. However, this individual should provide him or herself with a particular time slot each day so they can go back to the tasks that needs immediate attention after the time duration given. The purpose of having time duration is to avoid getting completely sidetracked by the new, brilliant idea.
Finally, an over creative mind definitely needs time to indulge in the ideas that has been lined out. It will be good to dedicate a few hours to check out these ideas daily. It continuously triggers brand new ideas and trains the mind to adhere to a timely process. If an individual can discipline him or herself to focus at certain hours and to brainstorm for ideas at other hours, the mind works accordingly as described in Pavlov’s reaction. The brain will get used to churning creative ideas at certain time of the day which allows it the most opportunity to indulge in the ideas. It provides better control of one’s over creative mind while providing thought stimulating environment.
