What’s life without a little challenge? — Boring that’s what!
Challenge: Start Carrying an Idea Notebook
This week’s challenge is simple enough. You’ve heard it before, but if you aren’t carrying a notebook around with you, you’re missing out on potential ideas that might pop up.
Ideas can come from anywhere,
so it’s a great idea to carry a pen and notebook (or in my case multiple!) around with you to capture the moment.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had ideas on the go which leads to some of my best work. And – to look at the opposite side of the spectrum – how many ideas I’ve forgotten because I didn’t take the time to write them down.
This doesn’t have to be weird — you don’t have to carry a notebook the size of a small dog around — just grab something small, and throw it in your pocket or purse.
If you already carry a notebook, your challenge is to challenge someone else!
In fact, even how we express our bodies changes how we think and feel.
‘Our bodies speak to us. they tell us how and what to feel. They change what goes on inside our endocrine systems, our autonomic nervous system, our brains, and our minds without our being conscious of a thing. How you carry yourself — your facial expressions, your postures, your breathing — all clearly affect the way you think, feel and behave.’
