What are you creative habits?

I am not sure which of the 8 habits listed in the article below I have more trouble with...but I think it might "welcoming problems." What are you habits to keep the creative juices flowing? Which of the 8 below do you have the most trouble with? Tweet or comment!

Here are habits of living that all creative people have fostered in themselves:

  • Ask Questions
    What if? Why? Why not? How? How many of the world’s great inventions or artworks would never have happened if their creators hadn’t asked.
  • Embrace Change
    It’s happening, whether you like it or not. Might as well love it.
  • Don’t Pre-judge
    Discernment is important — but only at the end. Let the beginning be a field of open possibility.
  • Look on the Bright Side
    Does being creative make you positive? Or being positive make you creative? Contrary to popular opinion, the research says: both.
  • Welcome Problems
    Creative people see problems as natural and normal — they’re drawn to them, wanting to fix them, to “make” a solution.
  • Confront Challenge
    Becoming more creative means stepping out of your comfort zone — aka your stagnation pool — and s-t-r-r-r-e-t-c-h-ing yourself.
  • Stick at It
    Successful creatives are all agreed: resilience and persistence were more important to their success than talent.
  • Be Flexible
