How to Get Inspiration Instantly

The building block of any form of creative thinking endeavour that you may undertake is ideas. The problem is, where do you get ideas? Ideas are everywhere. You just need to get the right amount and right kind of inspiration to get started. Here are some deadly simple tips for you to get inspiration instantly.

Gather New Stimuli
Engage your different senses–all six of them – sight, sound, taste, smell, touch and intuition to get ideas. The foundation of all ideas and idea-generating systems is stimuli. The more things in your environment that you absorb through as many of your senses as possible, the more ideas you will get.

Visit New Cities
Go to a travel booking app or visit your local travel agency to book tickets to other cities. Or if you like road trips, pack your things and ride across other states and cities in your country and neighbouring countries. When you are at these new cities, try their local dishes whether at halal restaurants in London, sumptuous food joints in New York, street food in Southeast Asia cities, or more. Gain inspiration and discover how the dishes are prepared, and the distinct flavours the food brings to your taste buds. Also don’t forget to visit the cities’ monuments, historical sites, museums, parks, nature reserves, and places of interests. Better still, if these cities are near nature, flora, and natural habitats, then be sure to explore them and gain immense inspiration, peace and serenity.

Read New Books
Read new books that you have never read before. Bore yourself to death by reading books you used to be bored with and actually pretend that you enjoy reading them. Read books on how to get instant inspiration and ideas. Some recommendations include The Einstein Factor, Jump Start Your Brain, Jump Start Your Business Brain. You can look up these titles on Amazon or your local bookstore.

Watch New Channels
Watch new television, streaming and cable channels that you’ve never seen before. Just don’t get carried away and allow television time to eat up your goal achieving time (unless, of course, it is your life dream and big goal to watch as much television as possible your whole life).

Install Facebook App
Install the Facebook App on your laptop and smartphone. Then search and come upon the millions of pages in their network and see if the next page relates to what you are working on. You can get it from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Visit Blogs and Websites
Login to your laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet, and visit random blogs and websites, or those that are related to what you are working on. For example, if you are interested in everything Halal, then visit an online Halal guide like to find out more Halal food and Muslim friendly accommodations, places and amenities. When you are on these websites and blogs, peruse through their content, and see which ones are relevant to you, and can give you inspiration. If there are comment sections or forums, then engage in healthy and friendly conversations with like minded individuals.
