Exploring my creativity, ADHD-style: 5 questions to ask yourself today

People who don’t have ADHD tend to think more linearly. “If I do A, then B will result.” When you have more of a non-linear, ADHD-style brain, it can be a lot harder to trace a logical process for completing something. On the other hand, you might be able to think outside the box more easily and come up with different and more “out there” ideas!

creativity 5 questionsTo learn about your own creative process, answer these 5 questions:

1. When do my most helpful ideas come to me? (for example, on a run, while driving, in the middle of the night)

2. Do I have a way of tracking ideas as they come? If not, why not?

3. What is the easiest way for me to express a creative idea? (for example, write it down, draw a diagram, use a whiteboard or big piece of paper)

4. What are some of my favourite ideas I’ve ever come up with?

5. Is there a time when creativity saved the day for me?
