Steal these ideas…consider them yours.
But before I share these multi-million dollar (or these “fall-flat-on-your-face-and-don’t-tell-anyone-you-got-the-idea-from-me”) ideas, here’s why I’m sharing…
- I have a list of too many and by sharing them, I’ve narrowed down my list. So thank you.
- I need to see if I’ve done anything on my ‘ideas’ list.
- Sharing is better than hoarding.
- You only get to keep what you give away. Marinate on that one.
So here goes.
- Short book: “I Don’t Know How to Use a Semicolon” and other things writers fear.
- Blog post: Intelligent contact lenses and other distractions that will plague us in the next ten years.
Short book: write an ebook based on my10 Commandments for Creatives blog post. (Done! Yes, making an ideas list helps!)
- Article/blog post: teen in Cupertino possibly finds cure for cancer. A very cool article and story.
- Fun titles…
- Creativity for Wimps
- Idea Starters for Losers
- Creative Thinking for Boring People (very rude titles–glad I didn’t use these, but they’re catchy)
- Blogging did seriously help me lose weight because I got some disciple back into my life.
- Blogging also helped me do something creative nearly everyday, even if my day job wasn’t always creatively fulfilling.
I love ideas and ideation. Ideas are powerful, dangerous and even scary to some of us.
When creatives get a new idea, we sometimes hear a voice of resistance whisper…
“But what if I fail.”
Then you failed trying.
“Maybe it’s won’t go anywhere and I’ll hit roadblocks.”
Making one new creative path always makes many more new paths–never roadblocks. (Tweet this)
“But what if I get made fun of by one of those…whatchu call ’em…haters?”
Take some advice from design-guy Dustin Stout…
Let me know if you use any of the ideas and I’ll be glad to give you a shout-out right here on Creatives.
