Top 10 Ways to Generate Brilliant Ideas

Top 10 Ways to Generate Brilliant Ideas

Here you will find ten of the best methods I have used in my organization for idea generation. They have worked for me very well. I now share them with you. I trust they will assist you in your endeavors as they have done with mine.

1. Define the Problem.

To generate ideas to solve business problems we all need a starting point. You will not be able to fly from New York to Frankfurt, Germany until you first arrive at JFK. If you don’t exactly know where you are you will need a map to pinpoint your current location and then gradually work your way to JFK airport.
It is imperative that you establish where you are before looking to progress. In other words study the map that will take you to New York thoroughly.

2. Brainstorming.

You have quite probably heard of this brilliant method. Simply, when a group of people get together and simply write down as much as you can in relation to the objectives outlined. Don’t worry about about strategic planning or anything like that. Concentrate solely on idea generation. Place a time limit on the group and choose the location and the time well so that they are conducive to performance.
Make sure that everybody is at their peak and has been instructed to “Think Big”. I have been able to move mountains after a very healthy brainstorming session.

3. Focus Entirely On What You Want.

To give your ideas the best chance to sprout for your business solutions you are going to need to switch off to outside influences. Tolerate nothing!
Eradicate the distractions, the daily frustrations and predictable dramas of your life once and for all!
Don’t just fix the problem, re-design your routine so the predictable irritations can’t ever bother you again!

4. Have a Genuine Interest in What You are Trying to Solve.

Do you remember your schooling days when you participated in sports (or particular class subjects) that you absolutely detested; as back then, they were compulsory? Do you remember how good you were at these activities? Probably not as it doesn’t present itself as a good memory. But it’s probably safe to say that you didn’t perform well.
It’s very very difficult to perform magnificently at something you’re not overly fond of. If you have a vested interest in what it is you’re trying to do, the likelihood of success is multiplied substantially. If you are trying to solve something that bores you to tears for heavens sake give it to someone who really likes it. This concept encompasses teamwork which is another
subject altogether.
If you are self-employed you will have an automatic interest (taking into account that you have a vision of what you want your business to become).

5. Look at Parallel Problems and Solutions.

Relate your current problem to one that you had in the past and check for parallels between the two. The way(s) earlier problems were solved can assist you greatly in generating ideas to solve subsequent situations that present themselves.
Think laterally, think vertically, think logically. The best ideas will always come from groups working for the common goal. Give your group as much opportunity to be creative by listening twice as much as speaking. Do this as informally as possible and get past situations into the open.
You can then draw on the past successes and take them a step further with the challenge of today.

6. Look at Each Task as a Challenge.

It’s true that if you look at a problem simply as a “problem” then that is exactly how many will look at it. Sure it is a problem and therefore, needs a solution. However, this thought should not be in the forefront of the mind when looking to turn this “problem” into an “asset”.
The word, “problem” tends to sum up negative thoughts within us. It is these negative thoughts that can almost act as a barrier to its resolution. Now if we turn the coin over and look at it from the other side (using our example in step 1) we can look at the trip from wherever we are to New York as an adventurous challenge. It is simply by this method that we have more positive thoughts within our mind and are more likely to enjoy ourselves along the way presented with an interesting challenge as opposed to a potentially difficult problem.
Just look at the goal. How happy will you be when you arrive at Frankfurt?

7. Turn the Challenge/Problem into a Catchy Expression.

Okay we have looked at using past example and creating parallels to “answer our challenge”. One step further is to present the challenge as a
Using our same example:
  • ‘Aunty Jackies For Christmas’
  • ‘Frankfurt Or Bust’ (Hmmm!! This one’s a bit old)
  • ‘Europe For The Summer’
  • ‘Dream Trip Of A Lifetime’
  • ‘The European Cultural Experience’
  • ‘Tomorrow travel at 250kmh legally’
Doing this will give everyone an idea of the benefits associated with the attainment of the problem at hand. It puts them in the situation that they are already there.
It’s so much easier to get there with a popular vision on the mind. What expression would you suggest?

8. Daydream!!! Let Your Creative Subconscious Work For You.

It’s no strange coincidence that during the time you drive along staring out the window, sleep in your bed, undertake your daily duties at work or anything for that matter your sub-conscious continues to work for you (even though you may not always be fully aware of this).
How often have you been doing something totally unrelated and then suddenly an idea snaps into your mind? Often? Sometimes? Never? In any case after you have put considerable time into solving your problem you will find your inner mind will work for you. Sometimes if you try too hard to solve something you end up with nothing short of major frustration.
So, as the expression goes “chill out”, have a break and sleep on it. You may be surprised at how successful switching off can be.

9. Alter Your Routine Regularly.

Have you ever noticed how easily we accumulate habits. Many habits can actually stifle your creativity. If you are someone who:
  • ‘travels the same route each day’
  • ‘work at the same desk and task day in day out’
  • ‘mix with the same people regularly’
  • ‘take your annual holidays to the same destination each year’
To continue generating healthy ideas to better our work, our surroundings, our family etc we must continually be looking for “newness”. Familiarity is very good in that it makes us feel very very secure. It is this very security that closes our mind to change and restricts our creative abilities.
Take the bus or the train across town or maybe even just a different route from time to time, broaden your job responsibilities, take on another sport or leisure activity and meet some different people with a different outlook.
You will be quietly surprised at how much positive energy you will get from doing things as small as that outlined above.

10. Carry a Notepad.

I always have a notepad with me. I am now at the point where I can’t live without one of the most simple devices known to man, which has probably been around almost since the days of the “Cave Man”.
A pen with a pocket size pad is brilliant as you can capture every idea that comes to you. It’s absolutely useless to say “I’ll write it down later” as the chances are very slim that you will in fact do that at all.
They will be your ideas. Capture them, preserve them, apply them.

Kata untuk Sahabat

T E M A N………
kata sederhana yang tidak mudah ditemukan dalam kenyataan

tak semua yang dekat bisa berlabelkannya

ada kerinduan untuk selalu dapat bertemu dengan sosok sepertinya

Pernahkah kau temukan seseorang yang
senantiasa setia di sisimu
kala kau jatuh dan hilang asa.

Pernahkah kau dapati sesosok makhluk
yang selalu tahan mendengar kisahmu
kala angin membawa berita-berita busuk tentangmu.

Pernahkah handphone berdering di tengah malam,
hanya untuk sebuah kalimat pendek
“Apa Kabar Imanmu Malam ini ?”

Pernahkah kau tangkap butiran air mata
yang disembunyikan, sehabis doa panjang
yang padanya terselip namamu.

Dialah teman sejatimu
salam cinta

frente bizarre love triangle

Every time I think of you
I get a shot right through
Into a bolt of blue
It's no problem of mine
But it's a problem I find
Living the life that I can't leave behind
There's no sense in telling me
The wisdom of a fool won't set you free
But that's the way that it goes
And it's what nobody knows
And every day my confusion grows
Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for the final moment
You say the words that I can't say
I feel fine and I feel good
I feel like I never should
Whenever I get this way
I just don't know what to say
Why can't we be ourselves like we were yesterday
I'm not sure what this could mean
I don't think you're what you seem
I do admit to myself
That if I hurt someone else
Then I'll never see just what we're meant to be
Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for the final moment
You'll say the words that I can't say
Every time I see you falling
I'll get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for the final moment
You'll say the words that I can't say
