1. Embrace your inner grouch. Discontent may just be a vast, untapped source of creativity.
  2. Let your mind wander. A wandering mind may allow your brain to search more widely for connections that could trigger a “eureka” moment.
  3. Play an instrument. It may help you to think with both sides of your brain at once.
  4. Colour your world blue. It may be nothing more than an association with big skies and the open seas, but beholding the colour blue makes you more creative.
  5. Seek out creative company. The best ideas are forged not in moments of solitary genius, but during exchanges with trusted colleagues.
  6. Be more playful. Horsing around may be better in the long run than hunkering down.
  7. Raise a glass. Many of the most creative pursuits – jazz, for instance, and poetry – are associated with heavy boozing, but can a dram or two really help?
