It’s no secret that creativity is the answer to many of life’s problems. Whether you’re looking for a new way to communicate with your co-workers or are trying to come up with an idea for your next presentation, it helps to have a few tricks up your sleeve. This article will look at some easy, effective methods you can use when brainstorming your next big idea.
1) Make a decision.
As soon as you wake up tomorrow morning, take a minute to make one small decision: what will you have for breakfast? Will you have toast or cereal? Take the time to choose something—anything!—for yourself, and then make it happen.
It may seem silly, but it’s actually the first step in making your life easier, more fun, and more fulfilling every single day. Because if you start your morning off by making choices (even simple ones), it becomes a habit that helps you reclaim your power in bigger and bigger ways throughout the day. And once you get into the habit of making decisions, everything starts falling into place! You’ll find yourself saying “no” when someone asks for yet another favor
2) Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
This might sound obvious but it is often overlooked in favor of more traditional methods such as brainstorming and mind mapping. Asking questions can help you uncover hidden insights and perspectives that would otherwise remain hidden if left alone. It also allows you to think more broadly about an issue than if you were simply trying to solve it on your own.
3) Take time out from what’s going on around you.
If you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed by life’s demands, take some time away from them by taking a walk in nature or sitting quietly with friends or family members who know how much they mean to you and want nothing more than for you to succeed at whatever goal has been set before them (and perhaps even beyond). If none of these options work, consider listening to music while doing something else – like cleaning house.
