Where do good ideas come from? Here’s my process…
First, spend a great deal of time—as I do—watching and listening. Take in everything you can, some focused on your profession and some not. Read books. Engage in meaningful conversations with everyone you encounter. Dive into the internet, letting curiosity be your guide.
Then… once your head is filled with a rich mix of facts, images, theories, stories and background noise… shut it all off. Step away from all the chatter and stimulation, so you can mentally relax and simply think.
I’ve discovered a great way to flip the switch. When you have a few free moments, with no patients to see, no staff members to meet with, and no other business to attend to, leave the building. Go outside (do NOT take that smartphone with you!) and just stand there looking at the sky. Aside from the occasional bird or plane and the passing clouds, it represents a blank slate… one that will draw out new ideas based on all that “input” you’ve taken in.
Where do ideas come from? For me, they come out of the blue—sky blue.
