The key to having more business ideas or ideas that works is our creativity.
While creativity may come natural to many people, some of us just get into a mental
block or just cannot find a good idea that would work.
So just what do you have to do when nothing comes to mind? There is no
surefire ways to get the perfect ideas but there are easy ways to get your
creative juices flowing. No one can guarantee that you will always be on your
top state of mind but there are many methods that could aid you in achieving
that state of mind. Here are five easy ways for that.
1) Keep a diary or a journal with you always. Ideas can be triggered by
anything you may hear, see, or smell. Your senses are your radar in finding
great ideas. Write all of them into a journal and keep it with you for future
reference. You may also write down anything that you have read or heard.
Remember that ideas and creativity can come from anywhere; it’s the development
of the idea that makes it unique.
2) Relax and take time to sort things out. A jumbled mind cannot create any
space for new ideas. Everyone must have a clear mind if one wishes to have
their creativity in full speed. Get rid of all obstacles that can be a
hindrance to your creativity. If you are bothered by something, you cannot
force your mind to stay focused.
Try to relax whenever you can and think about your experiences and
interactions with others. Your experiences are what shape your mindset. Try to
discover yourself, find out what triggers your emotions. Discover what inspires
you and what ticks you off. You can use these emotions to help you in
expressing yourself and your ideas, with this you can grow creatively.
3) Create a working place that can inspire your creativeness. Your working
place can be quite a hindrance if it doesn’t make you feel happy or relaxed. Creativity
comes from being in a good state of mind and a messed up workplace that causes
distraction won’t be conducive in firing up your creative flow.
Surround your working place with objects that makes you happy and relaxed.
You may put up pictures, or scents, objects that inspire, or anything that can
get your creativeness cranking. A clean and well organized workplace also rids
of distractions and unwanted hindrances. With a good working place, you can
work in peace and never notice the time pass by.
4) Set the mood. Setting the mood requires you to just go with the moment or
to induce your self to feeling what makes your mind works best. Finding out
what makes you tick could help you find ways to get your creative juices
flowing. Set the pace and tempo for your mood and everything else will follow.
There are many ways to set the mood. Some of us would eat to inspire
ourselves of possibilities. Some would like some mood music while others would let
the lighting of the environment create the mood.
5) Go on a getaway and just do something wild. Letting yourself go and have
fun can make your imagination go wild. Take an adventure or a hike. Whatever it
is, do something that is unusual from your daily routine or schedule. In no
time at all, your creativeness will make use of that experience and get your
imagination to go on overdrive.
You can try any of these to get your creative juices working. New business
ideas should no longer be a problem.
