Creative notebooks

If you are determined to develop your creative skills, then pay attention to creative notebooks. This is a new approach to the development of their creative abilities.

Creative notebooks are a great way to get away from routine things, learn something new, and also to pump out your creative abilities. And since creative notebooks are completely based on practice, they will help you to put into practice things that you have put off for so long.

Mentoring

The most effective way to develop yourself is to find a mentor, that is, an experienced person who will be willing to spend his time helping you.

How to find a mentor? To begin with, choose one specific area of ‚Äč‚Äčlife that you want to improve. Then remember those who are successful in this area. If you do not know these, you can ask your friends or even arrange a poll on social networks. Once a person is selected, make a plan, how to get to know him. And do everything to do it.

If you find a mentor, it will greatly shorten the path to your goal. And if not, then you can always use other development tools yourself, which will replace your mentor. Good luck!
