Inspiration and motivation slumps are quite a common and unfortunate challenge to navigate. Inspiration can be a fleeting force; some days it inundates you with creativity, and other days it can reign over you like a drought. Many workers may find themselves feeling overwhelmed with work due to world current events, managing deadlines, and exhaustion from the tug-and-war with time. 

Inspiration, however, can be found everywhere if sought after and exists in ways that can recharge your creative mindset with new ideas. Social media offers a myriad of ideas that can spark a new sense of motivation to knock down any creative block.

As part of the Fast Company Executive Board’s Expert Panel, ArtVersion’s Principle and Creative Director Goran Paun shared his go-to solution when in the face of an overwhelming creative slump.

“I run separate inspiration boards on separate platforms. Pinterest helps me find visual inspiration. I keep a collection of industry-related designs bookmarked. Instagram is a great resource for quotes and motivational messages, and for writing ideas, I refer to Twitter. The only goal to make this really work is to set a time limit and not to get sidetracked. Distraction can be counterproductive.”
