Being creative can be very difficult!
Here's some "top-drawer" info to help you out:


Getting started is always the hardest part. Don't place restrictions on yourself! We always begin our creative thinking with a "SKYhook Phase"

SKYhook [skahy-hook] -noun
an imaginary hook mounted in the sky to be used to hold anything up without an actual tether.

We are BIG fans of the SKYhook! If you employ this device into your initial creative thinking you can remove the need to figure out HOW everything works and just be creative! You will worry about how to make it function later and get all the good ideas down first!

Other methods to help your creative thinking/planning:

  • Bad Ideas Are Good - when confronted with a bad idea think of its opposite & you may find a good one!
  • Draw! - it doesn't matter if you are an artist, just draw it! The process gets ideas out of your head and into the world making them much more tangible.

  • Sounding Board - if you are in a group or working solo you still need to throw the ideas out to others... your ideas will generate ideas - guaranteed!

  • Shake it UP - get out of your normal space! Try having a creative session in a new location - it always helps!

  • Be BOLD - share everything!! All your ideas will spawn other ideas! If they are bad... see the 1st method!

Contact us today if you would like us to help you with any of your creative sessions - we have many other proven methods to be more creative!
