How to Get More Great Ideas


I think we all feel a little uninspired at times.

I know I do.

That’s why I LOVE this Ted talk by author Elizabeth Gilbert.

(she wrote Eat Pray Love!)

Liz talks about Inspiration coming to us from some divine, other world source.

Not from us.

Whether you are spiritual or not, this is a concept I think we can all benefit from in our creativity.


Stop feeling like YOU have to come up with the ideas.

Relax and trust that something or someone will deliver an idea to you when the time is right.

You don’t have ideas, you get them.

When I adopted this mindset I immediately felt less stressed.

It wasn’t up to me to have the next great idea, I just had to chill and wait for a cracker to be delivered to me.

And guess what?

More great ideas have come to me in the last 6 weeks than I think I had in the previous 6 months!


Why not give it a go?

See if a simple shift in mindset can unlock your inspiration and welcome in all those great ideas!


PS: If you like this Ted Talk, you’ll love her book Big Magic.

PPS: My new book, How to Draw Inky Wonderlands is the perfect place to invite all those great news ideas to take residence!

Buy the Book.
