I don’t get million dollar ideas when I’m sitting at my computer.
I get my best ideas while I’m jogging, cycling, relaxing in my favorite chair, traveling to a new place (even if it’s somewhere right in my hometown), or staring at a beautiful view (trees, hiking trail, city skyline) with an empty mind, doing basically nothing.
When I step away from my desk, and take a break, that’s when the golden ideas pour in. That’s the money zone.
And then I go back to my desk to nail down the plan, fire off some emails, send instructions to my team, and put things into motion. My desk is for implementation, not inspiration.
I bet the same is true for you.
