Running out of ideas? Try Elon Musk's goofy approach
So your brain is stuck.
Thoughts spin in circle.
Nothing new coming in the system.
Nada. Niente. Nix.
Well, maybe you have been taking things too seriously.
Maybe you have cut off that creative flow, which so often looks a bit goofy, a little silly.
Maybe you have been too judgemental in your head, giving labels to your thoughts and ideas.
“This is stupid, this is boring and what is my boss gonna think about that?”
The bad news is that is going to keep happening. Avoiding to look silly and get ridiculed is part of our nature.
The good news is you don’t have to look far to see that many people are successful exactly because they have “unorthodox“ ideas.
Take Elon Musk for example.
He has a parody twitter account where he posts futuristic / unrealistic thoughts about different things: https://twitter.com/BoredElonMusk
Is that stupid? Maybe. Is that funny? Yes. Is it creative? Absolutely. Does it help his brain stay sharp and think originally? You bet.
The thing is, no one cares if your ideas are “goofy”, they only care if they work.
So how do you get more ideas? How do you get better ideas?
Do what Elon does - goof around.
