Getting Motivated When Designing a Website

Whatever your skills, whatever your interests, everyone has the ability to be creative in their work. However, we can often lose our motivation and drive to create, making it difficult to stay focused on a particular work plan or project, especially in web design. So what is the best method for staying motivated? The key to maintaining your own motivation to be creative is actually a long term effort.

Starting out can be tough, and in most cases the most difficult part. But with the right methods and consistency you will be able to reach a point where staying motivated is easy. It is a simple case of knowing when to make the right choices at the right times. Obviously everyone is unique and each of you will have your own methods and actions into being creative.

But here is the chance to read something that offers some possible methods and solutions when getting motivated and staying motivated. The main things to take into consideration are: Set goals You will find it is a lot easier to stay motivated when you feel like you've reached a target. Give yourself something to achieve and break the work load down. If it is a large website project you are working on, set yourself mini goals so you are reaching targets every few hours or days rather than spending weeks trying to get the lot done.

Small bite-sized objectives As mentioned briefly above, set yourself up for more success than failure by being realistic in goal setting and come up with small, bite-sized tasks to start with. As you complete more tasks, start making your goals more ambitious. Build a creative workstation Whether you design websites at your desk, in a dark room or a home office, you need to assign a place to yourself where you can be creative.

Once you've decided on that place, use it! Each creative task and success you achieve in your 'creative workstation', will slowly train your mind to be creative within it. When I first set up my creative workstation it took me about 3 months for it to click in my mind that it was actually my workstation but as soon as I enter now, I can focus my mind that I'm ready to work. Walk away, but don't quit! Whatever you do, you must always remember to never give up on a website or problem. Put them to one side for a while but always come back it later on, even if it means coming up with a theory for solving the problem. These problems build confidence and develop a nice portfolio.

Find your creative time zone Just like your body's sleeping and eating times, there is also a best time when your body can be most creative. For me, the best time to be creative used to be late at night, now-a-days it's usually between midday and late evening. Although I do have a creative burst where I get most work done after 9pm. Your main objective is find out when you are at your most creative side and start using that time to your advantage.

Using the right tools When being creative designing websites you need to ensure that you are using the right tools for the job. The 'right tools' doesn't necessarily mean the best tools but being creative can be difficult enough, therefore, the idea is to make the job / project as easy as possible. For example, my best choice design software has got to be 'Photoshop', you may make this more difficult by trying to use 'mspaint' to come up with some amazing graphics.

It's something you just don't do! Following progress One of the key points in being creative is to follow your own progress. As mentioned in step 1; the main objective is to break the task down into smaller parts. Therefore, after a few weeks working on a project look back and see how far you've come. If you don't stop every so often to see where you were a couple of months ago, and where you are now ? do it! You might just surprise yourself on how much progress you've made and how your creativity has grown.

Get out of the house This may seem a bit like the step where you walk away from your work and come back to it later, but there is a fine line between setting aside some work and actually taking a break from your workstation. Whilst a creative workstation can often be the best practice, it sometimes helps to go somewhere different to work. It can provide a different level of ideas and influence your creativity and work. Work through it You may think that it's pointless trying to force yourself to be creative when you're 'not in the mood' but often it can work in your favour. It may feel difficult to start with but as you gain momentum you'll find your motivation returns almost every time! After all, you have nothing to lose; you get the job done and you're still producing quality work / websites.

It may not seem like they are of good quality but you may still be working the same as you usually do, you're just in the wrong state of mind to realise.
