We are in day one million, three hundred thousand, four hundred and twenty-five of social distancing. Not really, it’s probably only been about two months, but it’s still starting to take a toll on many of us. Understandable. Insecure is only 30 minutes long, and you’ve completed the shot-for-shot challenge over 20 times already. As a creative, we often need inspiration to produce our art. And, in these times, it may seem impossible to find. So instead of pounding our heads into the wall and praying for monumental creative thoughts to flow; maybe let’s switch gears. Now’s the time to nurture what’s already there until new ideas sprout. Whether it’s a project you’ve already dropped but didn’t have the time to really promote because life was happening, or it’s some dope work you’ve kept locked away in the vaults; now is the time to water those flowers and watch them bloom!
We’ve dropped a few gems below to help increase productivity and further your brand, while you have the free time. Literally, the whole world is on pause; take advantage!
