We sometimes fall into the trap of thinking about ourselves that we are going to get better, we are going to change, we are going to not be late at our meetings, and these types of wishful attributes that we want to have.

Best selling author, Seth Godin in a podcast interview in the Tim Feriss Show recently was asked to give suggestions about getting good ideas. He said that it simply does not happen to come at a great idea regularly, but you keep writing about a lot of ideas on a consistent basis and then, after a lot of bad ideas have been written down, you then are able to come across to a good idea. He mentioned a time when he and one of his friend used to generate hundred of business ideas on a weekly meeting. This practice was done as they felt it as a helpful strategy for their future intended careers.  Continue reading
