Now, while putting sports and business together is a fairly common comparison, for this Creativity Jolt, I’d love to encourage you to “look outside the box” and see where you can find inspiration.
Is it nature? Is it another industry that has nothing to do with you? Is it a hobby? Is it politics? Is it a movie or a television show? Or maybe even something you saw on YouTube?
In fact, I’d love to encourage you to look at something you think is exactly the opposite of what you’re trying to find inspiration for. Something so bizarre — maybe it’s competitive eating or a documentary on the Bible, that you feel has nothing to do with your business or your creative project, and see if you can find some way it relates to that.
You might be really surprised at what idea DOES get dislodged when you do that. (Some of the most powerful ideas in history were born because someone took 2 completely disparate notions and put them together.)
Would love to hear your thoughts and how this works out for you.
