Every creative person needs to set aside time to brainstorm. It helps get your ideas out of your head and onto paper which is a MUST if you ever want to give life to your art. Once you have your ideas down, the next step usually involves action. I try to do this quarterly, sometimes more with all of my projects. Here are some of my favorite quotes on brainstorming.
It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all. – Edward de Bono
Curiosity is one of the most permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous mind. – Samuel Johnson
The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Don’t wallow in brainstorming. Time spent fiddling with a business plan or filling up whiteboards with ideas is time that you could spend actually launching your business and seeing if the idea floats. Launching gives you real, solid feedback, instead of the imaginary ‘what if’ scenarios dreamed up in a conference room. – Naveen Jaim
