Revealing Inner Creativity
How do you stay ahead of the curve? How do you guarantee you are providing your customers with the next big thing? How do you present your offer in a way that is still intriguing to distracted customers?
The answer is creativity.
One way to get the attention of customers overwhelmed by choices is to step outside the predictable. Surprise is interesting. A new way of looking at something catches attention.
For many, creativity does not come easily. However, there are a few easy ways to boost your creativity throughout the day:
1. Change locations. Oftentimes, a new location will inspire a new way of thinking. Take a break and go outside for lunch instead of eating at your desk. You might see something that sparks an idea.
2. Change your routine. Instead of following the same pattern each day, make slight adjustments that will force you to pay attention to your new surroundings and may expose you to something inspiring.
3. Don’t say “no.” For the time being, allow yourself to say “yes” to every thought without considering the reasons it won’t work. It can be those impractical ideas that lead to the next really great one.
4. Step out of your box. Meet a new person every day. Try a new food. Memorize facts, even if you cannot use them directly in your work. This will change the ways your brain thinks and will open new pathways for your thoughts.
