If you want to increase your creativity, then it’s actually a good thing to learn speed thinking. The more ideas that you come up with, the more your creative mechanism begins to work. It’s similar to the muscles in your body: those that you build up and develop give you strength; those that you neglect or don’t use lie dormant.
In my book “Breakthrough Ideas, I give you tools and techniques that you can use to speed up your personal idea generation process. One of these tools is a simple list but with a twist (after you have completed this exercise you will come up with ideas and instantly recognise how powerful your creative mind is). One of the main things that this technique teaches is that by accelerating your thinking and generating more ideas, you simply have more options at your disposal.
How often have you been involved in so-called “brainstorming” sessions and you get the distinct feeling that you and others could come up with a lot more ideas but you just haven’t taken it far enough? This is because there are deliberate processes and frameworks that can help you to widen your opportunity consciousness if you learn to know how.
