Both in quantity and quality
I'm going to get philosophical and practical in this one.
There's never been a better time to create
But, there's also never been an easier time to consume
but lacking REAL connection.
We live the longest lives, but the shortest "PRESENT"s.
We have all the outward trappings, but none of the inner
Be conscious of what you consume
Fill your mind with wealth.
Good inputs lead to good outputs.
What you put into your brain and body consciously or subconsciously will manifest itself in your life.
But, who are adult children
Some are obvious:
Take a shower
Go for a walk
Be in nature
Learn to be with yourself
This will improve the quality of your thoughts and ideas
As a bonus you will be happier
It is mental masturbation
Think of your own problems
Solving your own problem or scratching your own itch is how many multi-billion dollar businesses have been created.
What are things that you deal with that frustrate you or waste your time unneccesarily
Write those down.
If it's a business helping real estate agents
Talk to real estate agents
Talk to their customers
Gain their perspective
Understand their problems, their challenges
And much easier to see the problems of others
Therefore it could be easier to come up with solutions
Before his crypto-fame @jaltucher talked alot about being an ideas machine
He suggests carrying a note pad, he carries a waiters note pad. I personally have a moleskin ;)
And jot down as many ideas as possible throughout the day
If you think "I'm not creative" it's because the muscle has atrophied.
Think of how creative every child is.
You were born to be creative.
Do this everyday and the quality and quantity of your ideas will improve.
We are created in the image of God and the godliest act is the act of creation.
You haven't had to be resourceful.
You haven't truly struggled.
The modern world is too easy
You need to purposefully make it harder.
Experience new things.
Go and do the things you have always have wanted to try but never had the courage.
Take a risk to be a beginner again
And look at the world again with new ideas.
The whole world becomes clearer
You begin to recognize patterns
The entire world becomes a beautiful canvas
Dip in and pour out your own version.
The best artists steal.
I love this idea because we should do more of it.
The world would be a better place.
We spend all of our lives thinking about our own problems, not realizing that the person across from us is suffering as well.
This is the first part of a 4 part series of tweet storms:

Have fun. :)
You will come up with better ideas and enjoy yourself
