Who has time to be creative?

In a large survey, 81% of CEOs said the future of their companies depends on creativity. Customers demand innovation to keep up with changing needs and interests. Entrepreneurs must find – or create – ways to meet those needs.

As an entrepreneur, creativity needs to be part of your workplace culture. When building your business, plan for an environment that will instill in you and your employees the creative urge.

Keep your creative processes unfettered for creativity to abound. Less red tape, more ownership and more team spirit enable smaller businesses to  bring their creativity to light faster than their larger counterparts. When companies are still in their entrepreneurial infancy, they abound with creativity: Small companies have 13 to 14 times as many patents per employee as large companies.

Unfortunately, the Small Business Association tells us that the average small business owner spends up to 40% of their time handling the routine administrative tasks behind the business rather than focusing on creatively growing the business.

If you’re working tirelessly on trying to run your business, your creative abilities will take a nose dive. Creativity comes from the right side of the brain, the side that suffers first during times of stress or fatigue.

If your creative juices are barely even dripping, it could be a sign that you’re trying to do too much by yourself.  It might be time to get some help.

As disappearing acts go,
it’s hard to beat what happens to the eight hours supposedly left after
eight hours of sleep and eight hours of work.

The inertia hardest to overcome is that of perfectly good seconds.
