Our day to day idea creation encounters
Ideas are created from the mind, we visualize and concept them to bring a better view to help us work with it. Especially, when you are able to concept these into something meaningful which can be classified as a project or business.
Scientist say the mind is able to concept and generate 50,000 to 70,000 ideas per day and 600,000 ideas per month. Whooh, this is huge, meaning, we generate both the positive and negative at the same time. If the brain is able to introduce all these number into our thought system, then it means we have wasted a lot of ideas in our heads. Whiles we use others, the rest we declutter them out of our system. Some ideas come as problems whilst others comes as opportunities. Even with that, we have to cut across two sides thus, turn the challenges or negative into positive or opportunities and opportunities or positive into threat or negative. We can only identify that, when we are able to use the power of visualization and notetaking our ideas for records. Discover why you need to write down your ideas in a notebook here.
