Coming up with new and fantastic ideas is tough work.
I know this first hand as I have to come up with new, fresh and interesting ideas every week to keep you, my valued reader, well stocked with useful tips and tricks that make your day just a little bit easier.
So this week, I thought I would share with you my technique for finding creative ideas fast and with the least amount of effort possible.
I like to call it “CreatiStorming‚Äù
Day 1 ‚Äì I say “day”but it could be an hour, 3 hours or ten minutes. You just need to take a break and look at the ideas through a fresh pair of eyes.
Write down all of the craziest ideas you can think of. I call these “Fringe Ideas‚Äù. All we want is crazy ideas, nothing that you think feasible.
If you can’t think of anything, write down all of the things you don’t want. You often know what you don’t want or don’t consider “good”before you know what you really want.
- Revise the ideas from the day before
- Rank those ideas from 1-10 in how confident you are in each idea.
- If those are 6 and above, then rank them 1-10 in terms of feasibility, if not toss them aside
By this point, you should already becoming up with much better ideas. Write them down! And continue to rank them on the 1-10 scale for confidence and then feasibility.
Now, I usually run through this process through mind-mapping but you can do it anyway you like: Make and outline, scribble on paper, a napkin or whatever but just make sure you write all the ideas down somewhere.
Also, it is critical to rank those ideas by confidence and then by feasibility as otherwise you’ll run into a second problem; How to decide which is the good idea(s).
There you have it folks! It’s that easy. I know, I know you think this will never work cuz it’s soooo simple but give it a try just once. You might be surprised!
