If you’re finding it difficult to make any headway creatively today, try this: Take five minutes to do something anything creative,whether it’s a drawing a quick sketch or writing a short paragraph or anything that puts something down on the page or screen.

If you like the result, do another five minutes of something.

Same thing tomorrow. Or if you like, add another minute. And so one.

There are times we have so many things running through our minds and our lives that we can’t seem to get anywhere but if you can do a simple exercise like this, then that can help you as well as help others may be struggling along those same lines.

Today is a new day. Make it count.
