The Monday Morning WHIP // 146

When it comes to coming up with ideas, sometimes trying too hard can be the worst way to handle it.

Ever had one of those days when the ideas don’t come?

Not absolutely no ideas, obviously, but no good ones.

Well don’t worry. It happens to all of us. Honest!

So what to do when the ideas don’t come.

I’ll be honest with you and say I don’t have a definitive answer.

But the one thing you should never do it get all hot ‘n bothered.

Because the harder you try, the less chance you have.

I don’t know why. The human brain just seems to work that way.

What I generally do is put the project I’m working on to one side and go do something else.

That can be going for a coffee, going for a walk or even wasting time on Facebook and Twitter.

But chances are, when you least expect it, an idea will dislodge itself from your subconscious mind and make its way out of your head and onto a piece of paper.

This may not happen in an instant, but it will happen.

You just have to be patient and believe in yourself.
