Do you ever get stuck on a creative problem?
Trying to come up with the next brilliant business idea that's going to change the world? Blah.
Want to put your personal spin on an existing idea so that you can make it fresh and new? Ick.
Writing ANOTHER article? Booooo.
It sucks. It's hard. It drives you mad. It makes you want to quit.
Honestly... There are so many problems to solve and things to do, that you just want to take a nap. It would be so much easier to fall asleep and let all of your worries drift away.
But, when you wake up... Your creative problems are still there. Unsolved. Unanswered. Staring menacingly at your face and laughing at your creative incompetence.
How do we solve our creative problems? How do we come up with "the BIG Idea"? And how do we get past our mental blocks?
Whenever I get stuck, I remind myself of the story behind Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich.
