Notice things.

If you want to keep your idea bank full, schedule time to notice things.

#1 — You’ll turn your critical filter off.

Ever tell your dream to a friend and have them say, “Yeah, that’ll never work.”

  • “Why write that? It’s been written 10 million times already.”
  • “Nobody cares what you think. Go watch TV.”
  • James Baldwin’s Giovanni’s Room was called “hopelessly bad.”
  • Louisa May Alcott, author of Little Women, was told to stick to teaching.

#2 — You’ll access your gut level thinking.

What do you really feel?

You might not write well every day, but you can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.

So what should you leave in and what should you edit out?

#3 — You’ll harness the power of raw emotions.

You feel powerful when your emotions run high.
