Over the years, I’ve trained thousands on ways to generate creative ideas. One favorite way — but it takes a lot of mental energy — is to challenge ideas and even to challenge the rules!
You may think that’s too risky or that you would be uncomfortable being such a rebel. But it’s not really that bad of a gig.
What I’m asking is to take a challenge to question whether something suggested is the correct path. To ask yourself if there is a better way. Asking questions such as why, how, where, when, why not, what if and have you tried…are ALL great ways to explore more options. And in that exploration, you will find a spark of an idea that no one may have thought of before.
Voila! Your creative genius has been uncovered! Tell me how that makes you feel, O Creative One!
