Default Re: How to get new ideas...

Since you started this thread I've created a number of "10" idea lists, at least one list for every day, and sometimes 2 or 3. As always, it's been the easy 5 or 6 and the not-so-easy remaining ones.

One day I had "10 Reasons to pick up that scrap of paper in the hallway of my apartment complex." Not really ground-breaking or earth shattering ideas necessarily, but later in the day I found myself picking up a scrap piece of paper that was laying in the hallway because of one of the reasons I wrote down: "because no one else will". I couldn't be a hypocrite and not pick it up!

I actually have to create a list of 100 topics so that I don't have to spend time wondering what I'll write about today...

Here were some of my topics:
10 Reasons to Enjoy a Dreary Day
10 Reasons You should walk to the Store at Night
10 Reasons to Work from Home
10 Reasons NOT to Work from Home
10 Ways Businesses Can Get More Customers

With that last one I actually emailed some local businesses with five of those reasons. I didn't just write a bullet sentence, but a small paragraph about the bullet. No responses and I really don't even know if anybody opened them up.

All in all, it's a good mind exercise.
