When you are in a creative environment, it’s always good to give yourself variables in terms of approach.
For instance, if you are creating a sketch, the colour schemes, fonts, layout and positioning of certain areas of interest all provide a myriad of options.
When I’ve rehearsed with bands and writing music, we’ve had a lot of fun exploring one idea or the other and fleshing out what approach works best.
Giving yourself creative options allows you to explore the deeper potential of an idea and collectively decide whether one approach is better than another.
And ultimately, you might just find the one best way to execute that particular idea.
