You are a creator, innovator, and artist. Now we got that out of the way, what are some practical tactics and tips to empower you to be creative everyday?
Make sketches in a book, or make sketches in your phone (I like Zen Brush 2 app).
Sketch whatever you see around you, and don’t aim for it to be “good”. Just aim to have fun, and fool around!

2. Photograph on your phone
Snapshots are the best shots. Just shoot on your phone! I love iPhone and the HUJI CAM app:
I love blogging. I feel it is one of the most empowering ways to create and share ideas.
If you don’t got a blog, make a WordPress.com blog if you’re not tech savvy. For more technical folks, use WordPress.org.
Write anything! Blog like you would play a piano or any instrument. Have fun and enjoy the process.
Write a rhyme, one at a time. Ring your creative bells and chime. Make big dollars not cents, make lots of art and don’t worry about your rent. Strive to make a dent in the universe like Steve Jobs, and stay childlike forever — Calvin and Hobbes.
I just made that up.
There is something intrinsic and fun to rhyming, rapping, and poetry.
If you don’t have time to photograph or do anything else— write rhymes! Do it on your phone or a piece of paper. Even Jay Z used to scribble rhymes on a brown bag when he was hustling on the streets and didn’t have a pen or pad.
Conclusion: Just make it!
All art is good art. Whatever you create, have fun with it. Create like a child. Tabula rasa (blank slate philosophy).
