Break The Wall: The Uncommon Guide to Never Have an Art Block

I remember that day when sun greets me warmly at 7 am. I sit and stare my paper, and tell myself “this day I will make the best art ”.

I think and imagine what I will gonna create, but that not work. So I decide to do like many people do “look for inspirations”.

I search all inspirations that I can find, I have search video, blog, and images and Hoping that the ideas will come out in nowhere.

But three hours was passed. And at 10.00 am, I still staring a white and very clean piece of paper.

and said….

“UARRRRGGH I STILL DON’T KNOW WHAT TO MAKE!!!”

Yes and yes, like your guess, I have a freaking art block, That Damn Walls!!!

I really stress and want to distress myself with singing the Untitled (how could this happen to me”) by simple plan.

But seriously, why this happens to us? Are there any solutions of this? Are all creators have to meet this “Freaking Walls” to make a good art? Is there a secret to not have an art block?

All this question give me the motivation to seek the answer. After tons of tons of searching and experiment, I finally found why we have an art block and how we can break that damn walls.

Break the walls.

When we have art block we feel empty like the brain is not working as we wanted. The ideas are not coming out and we just can’t make a good art.

But why this happens to us? Or more importantly how we can overcome this problem?

From tons of experiment, I finally found the solutions.

And the solutions are:

“Create a crappy art”.

You may have those face reactions and I bet that you can’t wait to throw me with a stone of dishonored.

But before you do that, let’s me give you a reason why this is a brilliant tactic:

There a two main reason why we stuck or have an art block:

There are Anxiety and Lack of Clarity.

Fear of rejection, fear that your craft is not good enough and the lack of clarity in what you gonna to make is the reasons why you can’t make the ideas flowing and start to procrastination.

 So how this strategy work?

This strategy work because it’s reduced your anxiety and make you more clear on what you going to create.

Have you ever feel when in middle of a process of creating, your ideas start to come out and you become clear in what you gonna to do in every step of creating? Or you feel that the creating become much easier?

If you do, in that moment you’re in creative mode.

From my experiment and experience, the best way to be in creative mode is to start creating.

Our brain becomes more effective if we are in front of the problem. When you start to create you will know what a specific problem you have. So in the process of creating you will feel that the ideas start to connect, make a flow of ideas and insight on what you gonna create.

So If the solution is “create”, why we need to create a “crappy” art?

Because when you create a crappy art, you have no pressure of making good art. The number one reason why we have low of motivation and start procrastination is we have anxiety, A fear that you are not good enough.

So It’s much easier to create when you do not worry about the results. And when it’s come to make a good art it’s time to edit it to become pretty.

So start to make a crappy craft, if you are a writer just make 2-3 crappy pages per-days. If you Illustrator makes 2-3 crappy sketches. Just do easily as possible.

And If you don’t use the crappy craft, It’s fine. The crappy art is just a stepping stones or a triggers to make you in creative mode.

Avoid a clean paper and when you get turned on, you start to get some best ideas and insight.

Other fabulous tactics that work.

Keep an interesting stuff or information you may need before you create.

Another reason why people have art block is that they have not enough information. So just search and keep content that can trigger insight or information we may need before we needed. I usually take 3 hours of the wild search every week.

Inspirations can be found in anywhere, from blogs, google image, friend, family, strangers and etc. if you found interesting stuff, keep it and when you stuck or run out of ideas, it’s the time to open your collections.

Schedule daydreaming.

What is organize daydreaming? It’s like daydreaming but I scheduled.

Find quiet time for daydreaming. Prepare one blank of paper and a pen, then start daydreaming. Think about your research and write all the ideas that come out.

Most common mistake people have when feeling inspired or after research. They did not find a quiet time to relax and think about it. When you in quiet time you can focus on your mind more, you can get ideas easier.

You need to relax the brain and start to think about it, to create an “AHA moment” and It’s not must be in your room, you can walk to the beach, hiking. just don’t forget to bring your small note, and when ideas spark, write it.

I usually make 1-2 hours of organizing daydreaming on Sundays or vacations.

From my search and experiment, I realized that art block is just a myth, it’s just form of anxiety and lack of clarity. So start to create crappy art and you will never have art block again.

Misunderstanding Caused by Difference That Every Couple Had

did you feel cannot understand what your partner think? When we really sure we doing right but our partner mad and when that happens we usually feel not loved or we feel that we are the source of their problem. So what if I tell you, that we just misunderstand our partner.

In a relationship, the difference in how we think and we feel can make misunderstanding and some of them can make us hate each other. Also, those differences are unavoidable. Almost 90% argument and fight caused by misunderstanding.

So in order to not got misunderstanding our partner, we have to know the difference between man and woman. also, their different personality. So let’s discuss the difference between man and women first

The difference between man and women

Between man and woman, there a big difference about the way they thinking and feeling. Unfortunately, many people don’t understand those differences. As a result, they are feeling unhappy in relationship. Usually, in unhappy relationship, women tend feel not being loved and not understand by the man and man tend to feel that they are the source of her problem and feel not trusted anymore. Are you familiar with this uncomfortable feeling? if you do, you need to know the difference between man and women:

1. They have different interests.

Man tends to be attracted to skill, power, and achievement. The most important for a man is his ability to achieve results or goals. They like the things that can accentuate their abilities. In another side, Woman tends to be attracted to love, communication and relationship. The most important for a woman is her feelings and the quality of her relationship. They like to share and connect with people.

2. They have different instinctive.

Man have instinctive to offering solutions. In another side, a woman has instinctive to fixing. They care about other people, they show their care and love by giving advice.

3. They have a different way to relieve stress.

Woman relieve her stress with sharing her problem with other people. In another side, a man relieves his stress with doing something he loves, ALONE.

So how this knowledge can help you? To know that, I give an example of common misunderstanding caused by the difference between man and women.

The common misunderstanding between man and women

If you know the difference between man and women, you can overcome:

1. Misunderstanding about their needs.

Many couples have a misunderstanding about their partner needs. For example: women think a man needs advice when he troubled but not at all. A man proud if they can solve their problem alone so.. they hate advice. Remember what important for man is his ability to achieve goals. If you offer them an advice it’s will hurt them, they feel you not trust them and make his feeling that he is the source of  problem.

In another side, man thinks women need a solution when she stresses out but that a mistake. A woman needs to be heard and they want a man to understand her feeling, not a solution. If you give them a solution, she will think her partner did not understand her or even not love her.

So to prevent world war III, A woman have to learn to not give an advice, if he is not asked for it and for man learn to listen, understand her feeling and hold yourself to not give solutions, if she is not asked for it.

2. The misunderstanding about how they can relieve stress.

Remember that woman relieve her stress with sharing his problem and a man relieve his stress with doing something his love alone.

Many women have misunderstood that man will get better if he shares his problem when he stresses out. But it’s will make the situation worse, man needs time alone when he stresses. he needs time to be alone to overcome his problem or calm himself down.

In another side, man has a misunderstanding that women will be better if they give them time alone when she mad. but a woman needs someone to hear them and understand their feeling, it makes her better. If he leaves her alone when she stress out, she will feel not loved.

The 4 main personalities

Like man and women have different needs, every personality has different needs too that need to be fulfilled. But first, lets we know about 4 main personalities:

1. Sanguine. Since childhood, sanguine is cheerful and always be passionate in anything. They talkative and many people like them. Usually, sanguine has a lot of friends. The main goals in their life are having fun

2. Melancholy. Since childhood, melancholic is sensitive. They also diligent and always doing homework on time. They feel sad when things do not go as they expected. The main goals in their life are perfection.

3. Choleric. Since childhood, choleric is assertive and like to lead something. They always confident. in school, They like to be a leader in some activities. Their main goals in life are taking control.

4. Phlegmatic. Since childhood. phlegmatic is quiet and passive. Their mother proud of them because they are a sweet child and never bothered anyone. Their main goals in life are peace

If you still don’t know your personality and your partner I recommended you to take a personality test. And if you already know yours and your partner personality, we will discuss main need that every personality need to be fulfilled

The main needs of each personality

In every personality have a different main need. Unfortunately, Many people think their needs and their partner needs are same. As a result, many people unhappy with their relationship because their partner does not fulfill their needs and if our main need not being fulfilled we will find someone or something that can fulfill our need or force our partner to fulfill our needs that lead to bloody war. So before we found a dead body, Here the main needs that must be fulfilled:

1. Sanguine: Their main needs is attention and approval. Sanguine need to know that their existence is accepted by the people around him. They really like a praise and the critics are their weakness. Sanguine will lose motivation when they heard criticism. With praise and encouragement, they feel loved.

Everyone likes attention and approval but for sanguine, attention and approval is emotional needs

2. Melancholic: Their main needs is regularity and sensitivity. Melancholic is a perfectionist who likes regularity. Also, they have a deep need to be understood and they expect other people to be sensitive to their feelings and sympathized with them. “They should know” are the words that often spoken by melancholic.

We all appreciate the regularity and expect sensitivity but for melancholic regularity and sensitivity is emotional needs.

3. Choleric: Their main need is achievement and awards. Choleric is a person that really like an award. They Usually a workaholic because of they want an award for praise or recognition. When choleric not get praise or gratitude for what he did, they often say “AFTER ALL I DID For THEM …!!!”.

We all want to be recognize and like being praised but for choleric it,s emotional needs.

4. Phlegmatic: Their main need is respect and feels peace. Although phlegmatic is patient and not demanding but phlegmatic really like to be respected. Also, phlegmatic will stress if their environment is a lot of conflicts. So the feel peace is something that phlegmatic need.

We all want to be respected and feel peace/safe but for phlegmatic is an emotional need.

The question of the day:

is this article help? And what your most important need in order to feel happy or fulfilled?
