Hacking Creativity
How to Find and Act on Inspiration
A presentation by Sharon Hurley Hall
Being creative isn’t hard

2
Ideas are everywhere!

3
They distract you when you’re
thinking about something else

4
They come up
in conversation

5
You find them when people
share on social media

6
You get inspiration from
what you read

7
You find them by walking around
and observing people and things

8
But being creative is not enough

9
It’s what you do
with your ideas
that counts!
10
Otherwise,
there’s no point
in being creative

11
First, you have to
capture your ideas

12
Then, you have to act on them

13
To capture
ideas, you
need tools:

14
a notebook, a
recorder
or an app

15
Capture
everything.

You never know
what will be
useful later
16
Then ACT!

17
How do you move from
ideas to action?

18
One step
at a time

19
Too many ideas
can paralyze you

20
So pick your best idea
21
Then make
a plan

22
Use planning tools like
whiteboards, paper, mind
mapping – you choose!

23
I like Workflowy and
Google Keep

24
But even
planning
isn’t enough

25
You also need to
be ACCOUNTABLE

26
Set
milestones

27
Get an
accountability partner
28
Check in

29
Use email reminders to
motivate yourself

30
Join a mastermind group

31
Being accountable
turns ideas into action

32
That’s how you get results
from creativity
33
And it’s WAY better
than just being creative

34

Creativity Alone is Not Enough!
