Looking for a Place that Inspires You
I’ve occasionally mentioned the necessity of finding a space where you can pull away just to think. Think thoughts of inspiration, vision and outside-the-box ideas.
For some people this means finding a quiet place where all they can hear are their own thoughts. For others, it might be a cocktail lounge or coffee shop, where there’s a lot going on.
I am finding that some of my clients are just discovering the skill of pulling away to do some deep thinking. They feel guilty if they are not doing task at their desk.
But the habit of pulling away for a certain amount of time on a day that works best for you can be the perfect recipe for coming up with something truly inspirational.
It may be a new program that you’ve always wanted to do and have never thought it all the way through so that it could be tried.
Or maybe it’s a revenue idea that just flew in your head that you need time to hatch so that it can be successful.
Now let’s go back to where YOU should do your thinking. There is no correct answer. It’s what ever inspires you. If you go for the quiet place, there are few rules to guide you. Just start thinking.
If you choose a business or noisier place, position yourself where you will not be easily distracted.
Also, if you use ear buds to listen to music during this process, make sure that you choose music with no words, so that you can “hear” your own thoughts running through your head. After all...that’s where the brilliance and inspiration is.
