29 Ways to Stay Creative

We all suffer from blocks to creativity once in a while. Or, we get distracted with the many things which fight for our attention and we readily succumb to their pull. Facebook or Twitter anyone?

Anyway, I’ve come across this video on Vimeo – who have a very nice “school” section on how to make better videos by the way – and I thought I’d share it with you. The full 29 ideas appear below the fold (don’t want to spoil your watching the video first, which is quite good actually.)

Hope you enjoy it, and more importantly, get inspired by it.

How do you stay creative? Are there any tips, tricks or  methods you use to stay on top of your game?
