Exploiting Breakthrough Thoughts
We’ve all heard of writer’s block, but what happens when your creative team gets stuck? Because freedom is an essential component of creativity, we recommend taking a break to make space for original thought. And when that singular moment of clarity hits and the feeling of being stuck lifts, act on it immediately. Cause a steady stream of fresh ideas by following these holistic steps:
Change the Scenery, change the thinking. Venture out of your workspace. Take a walk, sing a song, or do whatever it takes to clear your mind.
Capture AHA moments that occur when you least expect them. Keep paper with you or use a mobile device to document those revelations right away.
Visualize the ideas in context. Sketch out how you plan to incorporate the new brainstorm into your creative deliverable or solution.
What if you could cause AHA moments? We suggest scheduling a specific time each day to embrace silence to allow for unfettered thinking. Keep a journal of what comes to mind when your thoughts roam free before that next distraction pushes the best and brightest ideas away. At Xavier, we harness those fleeting AHA moments by pairing a stimulating environment with a focus on inner tranquility. To access bold and evocative originality, trust your creative needs to our constantly evolving team.
