Creative Doldrums: Finding Inspiration and Opportunity in the Ordinary

I’m creative, you’re creative. Heck, the creative freedom that we have with web design and development is the reason why we’re doing it, right? But even we can find "dry" spells. Even as a full time entrepreneur I can, at times, feel like nothing inspires and I find myself looking for a creative and inspirational boost.
I want to share with you my method of getting out of that inspiration rut - a way that I find "opportunity in the ordinary." Sometimes it’s the everyday challenges, the things closest to us, that can help get us through that creative ceiling for our customers, our clients, our own projects, or even our business. I will use some of my previous startup ideas as use-cases and you’ll leave feeling more than just inspired - you’ll have a method and strategy for making sure you’re never without inspiration.
