IN THIS EPISODE
0:21 Do you ever find yourself in a creative slump, feeling stagnant and on a hamster wheel unsure of where to start. You also might find yourself wanting to learn something new.
1:14 Jeff Hoffman is one of the original founders of Priceline.com. He shared with a mastermind I was a part of how he does info spunging. He spends 20 minutes a day learning and checking in on things happening in the world outside of his business industry. He then looks at the list and looks to see what he can learn and apply from the list. If he can’t apply anything, he files it away for later notice. Once you take in information, it’s stored in your memory and subconscious.
3:13 When you learn about it, file it away and you do this enough, you’ll find that you actually start connecting the dots of what you’ve learned. Jeff has a Ted Talk on and part of it shares this technique. When you info sponge, you’ll find that you will be inspired and you’ll actually start taking notes and you’re mind mapping and it will get you out of your slump.
Boredom is an emotion and if you check out the emotional scale from episode 50 and the simple art of immersing yourself into someone else’s business, it will help you move into a higher emotional scale. We all get into those times when we’re not creating, but as entrepreneurs, you are an innovative creator and that is what you do best.
5:47 Something else I love to do is to read on things that apply not just to my field of mindset but into other realms like business. One of the books I just read was The Art of Mental Training and how a coach uses it for his athletes. Even though it was in the sports realm, it was still mindset. What I find is that when I learn more about mindset and relationships, I can bring it back to business and apply it to the work I do with clients.
7:57 I would love for you to spend time learning about other industries, what you’re going to find is some sparks clicking and creativity returning.
8:30 Spend some time and info sponge it girl. See what you can come up with and create something new and beautiful for the world because we love you and we need you.
