What should you do when you run out of ideas?
Well, you have a few choices.
Your first choice, is to quit.
But is that really an option?
Let’s assume it isn’t.
It’s so easy to quit. It doesn’t require any effort or planning on your behalf.
You’re here to plan, to brainstorm, and to get better.
So, let’s talk about your second option.
Your second option, is to take inventory of what you possess.
- What can you help others with?
- What problems does your ideal audience, prospect, or lead have?
- What’s the one thing you’re passionate about, more than anything?
One thing I’m trying to focus on more and more, is simplicity.
So, if you’re a reader of my daily blog posts, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve recently simplified my layout.
I’m not sure if it’s the wisest course of action.
I’m not sure if my readers will like the new (simple) layout.
I’m not sure if this blog presentation will generate as many leads as my previous layout. (My last blog layout was a lead generation machine).
But, there’s something that’s more important than that.
That one thing, which supersedes even my ability to effectively generate leads…
Is my ability to brainstorm effectively.
Which brings us to our main idea for today.
Always provide to yourself, the best atmosphere that you can possibly wield so you can creatively brainstorm at your best.
What does that mean for you?
Well, I have no idea.
We’re all different.
For me, it means simplifying everything.
I’m finding myself to be more of a minimalist.
The less variables I have to work with, the easier everything else in life is.
But, maybe you’re different.
Maybe you need more moving parts than I do.
The point is, to figure out what you personally need, are happiest with, and what makes you perform at your best.
Because, once you reach your own comfort level, a fascinating thing is going to happen.
You’ll find that your ability to generate ideas literally skyrockets.
And you’ll never again, run out of productive ideas.
In fact, you might come across a very high quality problem.
Which is that, you have too many ideas and you’re not sure which ones to take action on.
Food for thought, and please have a beautiful day.
Cordially and humbly yours…
