How to Become a Creative Genius in 5 Days [Infographic]

How to Become a Creative Genius in 5 Days [Infographic] Blog Feature

When it comes to the topic of creativity it seems like there’s a cloud of mystery that surrounds it.

Everyone has their own view of what creativity is. To some, it’s the random bursts of inspiration that can strike at a moment's notice. To others, it’s the actual ability to act on those bursts of inspiration and bring them to life.

This usually leads to the age-old debate; is creativity the result of nature or nurture? Can it be learned or is it something some people are just born with?

The folks over at Zippi, a custom printing company, are firm believers in the latter.

They believe in this so much that they’ve even put together an infographic to help you unlock your creative genius in as little as 5 days!

In their infographic below, they outline a process that includes everything from creating the perfect playlist to breaking through creative roadblocks. The day-by-day process is broken up into five phases.

Day 1: The Right Environment

Your first day will be focused solely on creating an environment that will inspire you while working on your creative projects.

Day 2: Think Creative

Once you’re in the right environment, it’s time to start brainstorming. Sketch out some of your ideas, research some the topic online, refer back to any inspirational material you might have saved for the project.

Day 3: Go Ahead & Create It!

Now comes time to create your masterpiece. Take all those sketches and ideas you came up with and execute on them. Try to work in 90-minute sessions; separating each session with a short break.

Day 4: Take a Critical Eye & Refine

Once your initial piece of work is done, take some time and step away from the project until the follow day.

When you’ve taken some space, return to your project with a fresh mind and analyze the parts you think could be improved on. You may have to go through this process a couple times to get the best final product.

Day 5: The Art of Self Promotion

When your project is finally at a point you’re happy with it’s time to blast it out to the outside world.

Zippi suggests taking advantage of social media or blogging to get the work out there. This will help you not only increase your following but is also a great way to generate some additional feedback.

Check out the infographic below to get the full breakdown of Zippi’s five-day breakdown of becoming a creative genius.
