Like many of you, I have a hard time coming up with ideas to blog about. We tend to focus on topics that we need to write about, and don’t allow our imaginations to run free.
Stop focussing on what you have to blog about and let your mind relax. You will find yourself coming up with many more ideas if you relax.
I’ll give you an example. I walk to the gym, which is about 30 minutes away. In those 30 minutes, I come up some of the most interesting ideas. However, they aren’t all related to what I want to talk about, but I can work with some of them to achieve my goals.
If you are having a hard time being creative, why not take a break and go for a walk? You can do anything that will take your mind off your work. It could be something as easy as a quick walk around the block or some meditation. Trust me you will feel relaxed and hopefully more creative. I can’t guarantee you will get a creative injection, but hey it will be at least a quick rest for your body. If you want more proof about getting the best ideas, check out Christopher Penn’s post about why he uses a manual coffee grinder.
How do you get creative?
