Expose yourself to good ideas

Expose yourself to good ideas

Output comes from input. If you want to have a lot of good ideas, you need to expose yourself to good ideas.

This means reading books, having conversations with interesting people, seeking out new experiences, travel and more.

Have a capture mechanism

Creative ideas often come to you when you’re not deliberately trying to solve a problem, when your mind is relaxed.

That's why your creative process must include a system to capture ideas when you have them, so you can work on them later. The simplest mechanism is simply to have a list where you keep ideas.

Incubate your ideas

Regularly review your ideas lists. Incubation helps because just as a spontaneous connection can generate an idea, an incubated idea can spontaneously mature into a plan of action if you take care of it.

Have a pipeline for execution

Pipelining is a methodology for working on more than one thing at a time, by having various stages of the process get worked on.

The different stages in the process, with time in between, allows space to think and edit.

The generative flow mindset

Is where you let ideas come to you easily and you don’t look at them too critically. This mindset is expansive, relaxed, open and positive. 

The advantage of this flow is that you create a lot of ideas. 

The downside is that a lot of them are bad.

The critical flow mindset

Is where you edit and tear down the ideas you’ve made. You spot flaws and you edit ruthlessly. This mindset is closed, focused, critical and precise.

The advantage of this flow is that you can make your work a lot better. 

The downside is that it can often block you from thinking of new ideas because they get rejected too quickly.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
