Great article at 99U. I am trying to add as many of these as I can to my life. Here is an overview:
1. Take a Quarterly Vacation
2. Hold a “Retrospective” After Projects
3. Write Every Day
4. Create an “Interesting People Fund”
5. Keep “Tear Sheets” to Get Inspired
6. Nap Every Day
7. Envision What You Will Be Remembered For
8. Brainstorm at the Bar
9. Get Out of the Building
10. Engage in “Morphological Synthesis”
I have certainly had a few days where I just didn’t feel very productive. I found this article to be helpful:
I love to learn about how really creative people do what they do. This interview with Ricky Gervais is really fascinating — I can see how his approach translated into the Office and other projects he has created. (there is a little explicit language in this).
We do a fair amount of meetings around IMAGO that are centered around idea generation. We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our process. I ran across this article about leading certain kinds of meetings using a brainwriting instead of traditional brainstorming techniques. I am going to give it a try and I’ll let you know what I think.
Have any of you tried this approach?
