How to Find Inspiration. Fast.

Feel free to disagree with me, but in my eyes, having motivation and feeling inspired are two distinctly different things.

Like most people, I have days when I feel a lack of motivation. And the only thing I want to do is curl up in bed and binge watch something funny. But more often than not, my unproductive days stem from feelings of tediousness and boredom.

To explain, allow me to set the scene for you. Me, sitting at my desk. Planner right beside me. Coffee cup in hand. I log on to my laptop and open up a new blog post draft. And as I watch the cursor blink lifelessly, I realize that I have NO idea what I want to write about.

It isn’t that I’m not feeling motivated. No, I’m motivated plenty. I got up early. Went through the stages of my morning routine. Did everything I could to amp myself up. But for some reason, I just cannot get that motivation to translate into inspiration. My creativity has suddenly gone dry.

And it’s the worst.

The other day, I decided enough was enough. I needed to do something about these creative dry spells. And I started jotting down things I could do to inspire myself. Almost like a checklist of sorts.

Fact about me: I LOVE checklists. The concept of having something like this to reference when you’re feeling uninspired is awesome to me. I feel like it’s a good way to answer the question “well, what do I do now?” before you even ask it.

ANYWAY, me being me, I ended up turning the checklist into a fun graphic. Not only do I want to share that graphic with you all today, I also want to share a blank version of the template I created for it.

I figure since having this graphic has been so useful to me on uninspired days, it might be useful to some of you as well! You can fill your circles with activities, ideas, words, quotes. Anything that makes YOU feel creative.

Get Inspired. Now.-2

You can keep this tucked in your planner or saved on your laptop for those days when you’re feeling a lack of creativity. Hopefully it’ll give you the spark of inspiration you need!

I’m off for now. I’ve got MOUNTAINS of work to do. Like, actual mountains.

  1. I love how you’ve turned a checklist into a graphic. What a good idea! I need to try it. I find the same, days when I’m lacking in motivation always stems from something else like you say, tedium and boredom will kill it every time.
