I'm easily distracted. Distracted by everything - screens, social media notifications, burrowing animals and the daily news. A guy riding by on a bicycle carrying a two by four on his shoulder. Distraction tends to lead me down unproductive pathways.
One way to be more creative is to find a creative environment. A space free of distractions containing only the essential elements you need. For a writer a notepad and a pen. Add an instrument if you're a musician. Visual artist? Some form of media. Cook - a kitchen and ingredients. Sometimes just a quiet place to sit and think.
What's your creative environment?
