60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey: A Technique for Producing Ideas.
by Diane Wyzga | September 15, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Warwick, Rhode Island!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
Like me I bet you recognize that it takes imagination and experience to produce the *right* idea. Some days I could really use a “problem-solving content collaborator” until I realize I am one, but still need help to guide myself out of confusion to the right idea. My solution: a 5-part technique I borrowed from James Webb Young.
1. Gather all the raw materials for your immediate problem and from your storehouse of lived experience
2. Work all the materials over in your mind
3. Invite your imagination, dream world, and subconscious mind to begin synthesizing what you gathered and worked over
4. When the idea appears embrace it with a resounding “Ah Ha! – I’ve got it!”
5. Shape and develop the idea to your practical outcome
Question: What unexpectedly brilliant idea and practical outcome did you produce?
