My 30 Day Personal Development Blog Fast
The Quest for Creativity
I’m fasting to see if I become more creative when my mind is not muddled with the ideas of others. Instead of putting spins on topics that other people have mentioned in blog posts or books, I wonder what my life would be like if I thought of how to navigate my life on my own.
In the past, I’ve quit creativity-sapping habits like watching TV and talking on the phone. By shedding the time I spent on these things, I freed up significant blocks of time.
There’s no doubt that personal development blogs have so much to offer when it comes to learning from other peoples’ mistakes, or producing a shift in your mindset–letting you know that you don’t have to conform to expectations.
This is the most empowering aspect of having a collective idea-sharing engine like the blogosphere: you can build upon other peoples’ ideas, tear them down, or offer up your own new insights.
For the next 30 days, I’m going to focus on the latter: producing my own new insights within the personal development field.
It’s a bold challenge–I know.
It’s going to be weird–I know.
But that’s why I’ve got to try. Maybe by removing the temptation to feed off of others’ ideas, I can free myself up to produce more quality information that is inherently me.
