We’ve all had that “ah-ha” moment. Maybe you figure out a solution to a problem at work, and you save the company a bunch of money. Or maybe, you have a great idea for a business pitch, and you can just see it unfolding perfectly in your mind.
Usually, these kinds of great ideas don’t happen everyday. They come around every once in a while but are few and far between.
Did you know that actually doing more of “nothing” can make you have better ideas? If you take just 30 minutes a day of non-screen time or take a brisk walk, your mind can think much more clearly.
For this Five Minute Friday episode, I’d like to share an interview clip with my friend Dorie Clark who argues for the importance of reflection in daily life in order to think clearer and have great ideas.
