Practical Tools and Wise Quotes on All Matters Creative
12.7. Psychological Track
The psychological track means making full use of your subconscious, recruiting its vast powers to your bidding. The problem is that this is not always easy, and the subconscious may fight back by whispering to you how stupid this is and how the scientific approach is much more sensible and that if people knew what you were doing, they would not think very much of you.
Ignore the nagging! Open your mind and play. Try as many different things as you
can. If something does not work, just say ‘never mind’ and know that it simply
means that they did not work today. Tomorrow is another day! The simple secret
of psychological creativity and invention is to keep trying different things
until something works. Persistence pays, as does staying relaxed and having fun
whilst you wait for your subconscious to come up with the goods.
