Everyone comes up with new ideas at one time or another. If you want to come up with more ideas, think about where the physical place is that you tend to come up with your best ideas.
For some it’s while they are in the shower, for others it’s while they are driving. Or maybe you come up with your best ideas while lying under a tree in the park. For me it’s the car.
I spend about 30 minutes every day thinking while on my commute to the office. I’ve come up with some great inventions on my commute to work.
It’s important get to your idea place at least once a week. But don’t force it. You can’t force creativity. You just need to make a habit of getting to your idea place at least once a week. Sometimes your ideas will flow and sometimes they won’t.
But if you don’t get into that relaxed creative state once in a while, you’ll never come up with new ideas.
So make a point of getting to your idea place at least once a week and you’ll achieve great success.
