There might be one idea you're searching for BUT it might be 100 ideas away. How do you get there? Keep the ideas coming!
Divergent thinking is a specific method of generating a large quantity of ideas on one subject in a short period of time. This process allows you to push past the mundane and delve into the dynamic.
Think of it as idea riffing - an addictive and amazingly productive process for any field.
"I ran out of ideas" won't be a roadblock after this session. With collaborative learning and discussions, you'll feel how contagious and effortless divergent thinking can be.
Creativity is absolutely recession proof. It just takes prompts, practice and play.
