Ever find yourself not knowing what to create, design, write, eat, type, say, draw, choose, etc?
Here’s a productivity tip for you. Document your ideas and thoughts, including the ones that might not apply. Here’s what will happen: you will naturally go about your days, weeks, and months and you will build up an arsenal of weapons for getting over mental slumps.
I use mini-notebooks (pictured), full-size notebooks, digital notebooks, calendars, and index cards. They all come in handy for different reasons.
Heck, you might even have your plan already mapped out completely, but as you go, you’ll find that you need another viewpoint angle to sharpen, refresh, or contrast.
So the next time you hit a slump, you can look back at the ideas and get a jolt of inspiration from your best proponent: YOU!
Do you have any special processes that you use to get you through any slumps in your creative work? Let me know. We can compare notes.
