Are you stuck for ideas at work? Or have a problem you need to solve?
The easiest way to get inspiration for new ideas is to give our brain some new inputs and stimulation.*
So go out and expose yourself to different places, people and things. And remember that you can take in this new information through any of your five senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell.
You can also create new ideas by combining old ideas in a new or random way.
One of my common approaches is to use metaphors and analogies to see a problem or situation from a different perspective.
In my recent guest post for Motivating Mum, I walk you through how to use the Random Word Tool to get a different perspective on an issue you might be facing. This tool helps you find new ideas by taking a random word and trying to connect it with your issue in as many ways as you can.
The guest post
is titled ‘Get a fresh perspective to revitalise your business’
and is written from a business perspective. But you can
still adapt this tool to any issue you might be facing at work or at home.
