Creative release: Stop before you’re finished

| March 3, 2014

You’re on a roll. The ideas, the words, the pictures: They’re dangling right in front of you, and you won’t be satisfied until you’ve plucked every last one, even if it means staying till midnight. But if you put on the brakes around 8 p.m., while you’re still in the creative flow, you’ll return the next day refreshed and full of momentum. Think of it as breaking through a creative block before you have one.
