I’ve noticed that I do some of my best* work when sleep deprived.
And when moving. I always have to drive so when I’m on a bus the road kind of lulls me into relaxation and the creativity pours out. (Noise cancelling headphones are a key part of this strategy so you don’t have to listen to other passengers, because people who get busses are gross**.)
I don’t type as well on an iPad as I do on an iPhone.
I type faster on a laptop keyboard than I do an iPhone, but I have fewer distractions on an iPhone so I actually get more done on the iPhone. What’s the theory about creativity doing it’s best work under oppression?
*best may be a subjective term
** irony of statement is being ignored
When do you get inspired? And how do you capture it?
