Creative Brainstorming

We apologize for the late post.  Today we spent the day in a creative brainstorming session! Putting together a proposal for a potential new client required our "beyond the box" thinking. Working in a not so traditional office setting gave us the opportunity to let the creative ideas flow.  Something that working in a cubicle can stifle.  

If you work in an office setting and frequently suffer from cubicleitis - the stifling of creative ideas -  we recommend temporarily changing the work environment.  Go to a coffee shop, a park, clear your head and take a walk, or if you are as lucky as we are, work from home.  It's amazing how the creative ideas return once you're in a new setting.

And if you can't get out of the office, the internet can be a great tool for creative inspiration. If I am struggling to think of something fresh, I simply google phrases that pertain to my work. For instance, if I am working on a grant proposal for a computer donation project, I google "donated computers" or "computers and underserved populations." Not only do I peruse the different search results, but I also check out the google images. And if that doesn't work, than I google something totally outlandish like "help me, I can't think" - it's fun to see what pops up!
