Next time you just can't think of a new way to solve a problem, try these tips:
- Think like a child. Remember, childhood is the breeding ground of creative thinking.
- Pay attention! Great ideas are all around you. Don't hesitate to steal a solution from others and tailor that idea to your needs.
- Ask everyone you know for input. You never know who or what can spark your creativity.
- Don't force your ideas. If your mind is truly blank, take a break. Do something else--or do nothing at all. Getting a fresh perspective may be all you need to get you going.
