A very common question is ‘Can you give me some ideas, I have tried everything but nothing seems to work.’
Though it may seem obvious, the truth is just that you have to loosen up and the let the ideas flow and jot them down as soon as they do.
Write it down
Have you ever had that problem when everything just seemed to flow into your mind at the same time and you just did not know where to start? Else, you got stuck on an idea? If you answer yes to these questions then the best thing is just to write them down on paper.
Why paper is simply because getting some inspiration while writing it down on a word document can be quite difficult and it is way easier to organise paper notes and you can also scribble all over them, something that is not possible with word.
Why you should write it down is that as soon as you get an idea, your mind will try to push it to the back to give way to new ideas. This will encourage the flow of more ideas and give you the freedom to organise everything and match them up as needed. This technique does not apply to writing only, it can be in any aspect of your life.
Visual materials are always interesting as you can clearly see them which can then lead to the creation of new ideas in a way no words could ever do. As it goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
This is why it is always a good idea to scribble in the margins of the idea paper. You do not have to be an artist to do this, make things that you understand as it concerns only you and you have to be able to translate it.
Sometimes drawing something bad can lead to the creation of new things so really you should not bother too much about your drawing types as long as you know where you are going.
Many people read a lot of ideas and techniques that do not inspire much at the end of the day but writing them down will loosen up your thoughts and give you the freedom for more ideas.
