Breaking Through a Creative Slump

1. Partake in some Mad Men-style office drinking to loosen up.
2. Practice the yogic “corpse pose” to still your cluttered mind.
3. Fill your workstation with everything that you find inspirational.
4. Crank the tunes.
5. Enlist colleagues to help brainstorm. They’re probably not that busy.
6. Accept that not every project will be perfect. Better half-assed than half-done, right?
