Logging our creativity

And funnily enough, I only really recognize where the balance stands after the fact. In the moment, it all just feels very natural, like I’m doing exactly what I’m supposed to do. So I’m going to keep doing it – and, of course, tracking it. If any other interesting insights come up from my creativity log, I’ll be sure to share them.

I love this idea from Devon. He’s taking notes of what he does throughout the day and writing that down. I’ve tried similar things over the years, including a colored chart for three months where I captured my emotions. 

In my experience, the benefit of this seems to come from the mere fact of doing it. I haven’t really found a great way to  use the data after the fact, but it gave me a positive mental boost along the way.
