In my first post, I was reminded that we should step away from the desk. My advice:
Visit stores, walk down the hall, pick up the phone – and listen to your associates AND customers.
The reason – It’s too easy to get fixated on the monitor and not see the real business.
Peter Shankman takes it to the next level with five great ways to step away from the desk and kick-start our brains in “How to Regain Your Lost Creativity.” Take time to read it and then immediately pick one idea to do the very next time you get brain freeze.
Like skydiving ….
Yes, that’s me with arms crossed thinking,”What the heck am I doing?” I admit. It was great! Now every time I think of saying “I’ll try to..,” I stop the thought with, “I didn’t try to jump, I did it.” Now it’s a trigger to remember to stretch that brain muscle.
Thanks for the reminder Peter.
Now, how do you find your creativity when you’re stuck?
