What is the creative crisis
Signs of creative crisis
Creative crisis arises involuntarily. Yesterday you worked on an interesting project, and today you have a stupor. And to move from the dead point by effort of will, no matter how hard you try, you will not succeed. This is the fundamental difference between creative professions from any other - you, of course, can force yourself to work, but the result will have to wait a very long time, and it is unlikely to please your employers.
If an employee in a creative crisis - it is noticeable immediately. At the peak of inspiration, the person creates, not noticing anything around. He can forget about food and stay up until the end of work. In a creative crisis, the employee at best depicts the activity, constantly complains of poor health, fatigue and various distractions.
Who falls victim to the creative crisis
In the risk zone, first of all, those who work, not sparing themselves. The high rate of work will inevitably lead to exhaustion and recession, and one far from perfect day you will not be able to give out even the smallest idea. To reduce the risk - slow down the pace of work. If you simultaneously have several ideas at the same time - write them down and make a work plan for this project. In case you are overtaken by a creative crisis, you will be able to work, focusing on your records.
The end of a meaningful project can also be marked by a creative crisis. You have worked long hours, and your creative potential may well "go on vacation". This is a normal process - let yourself rest and recover. And then with new strength to new achievements!
A creative crisis can overtake you and during the execution of a major project. At the beginning of the work, you were filled with enthusiasm and inspiration, but then the emotions subsided, fatigue and disappointment ensued. In this case, planning will also help - do not forget to write down your ideas about the different stages of work, and during periods of fading inspiration, engage in routine.
The emergence of creative stupor can be provoked by the monotony of your life outside of work. If year after year you live in the same place, visit the same institutions, go to work the usual way - this all can oppress the creative potential. To revive him, go on a trip, make a house reshuffle, find yourself a new hobby. The main thing - that in your life burst the flow of new impressions.
Personal problems can also cause a crisis in a creative person. Such individuals, as a rule, are more vulnerable, all external problems significantly affect their work. Solving this problem is quite difficult - you can not just take and turn off emotions and memory. Therefore, try to do everything to ensure that your personal life proceeds smoothly, and the inner world is calm. But remember that many great masterpieces were created by authors against the backdrop of crises of personal life.
