12
Signs You Are
Killing Your
Creativity
Thomas Oppong
1
Surround yourself
with people who
rigorously worship
convention and
authority figures.
2Stop asking "Why?"
and accept the
world as it is.
3
Train yourself to
think within the
confines of rules
and only within a
defined box.
4
Plug yourself into a
system that is:
unforgiving of early
failure and predefines
(non-negotiable)
deliverables.
5
You protect the
status quo. Do you
find yourself saying
“That’s not how we
do things here”.
6
Spend all your time
around people who
agree with everything
you say.
7
Convince yourself
that everything in your
life should be orderly
and predictable.
8
When your schedule
is predictable. If your
days, weeks, and
months all look the
same, you should be
worried.
9
You preach safety
first. You are always
opting for the safest
decision.
10
You relentlessly
pursue efficiency.
Sorry, but the
creative solution is
not always the most
efficient.
11
You settle for the
first “good” idea.
You gravitate
towards the path of
least resistance.
12
Let your own
hidden fears and
uncertainties
consume you as you
prepare to let go of
your dreams.
And now the fix!

your creativity
