About two weeks ago, I first heard of the book Become an Idea Machineby Claudia Azula Altucher, and immediately decided that I have to buy it. I have encountered the method in James Altucher’s writings, but Claudia’s list of ideas was something I felt I needed to get myself started. The basic idea is to come up with 10 ideas on a given topic, every day (the topic changes every day as well)
She includes the suggestion that if you feel you cannot come up with 10 ideas, come up with 20… I have also imposed a rule that I am not allowed to look ahead to the next topic, until I have finished the ideas for the day.
So, the first day, I felt I could not come up with 10 ideas… And the next… Eventually I just decided that I am going to stick with 20. I have been doing it for the past 12 days, and I really am enjoying it.
So, I have decided to start posting the ideas on my blog. I will post one set a day (so, ideally, they will be about 12 days behind my actual writing). I will post the first of the ideas after I post this.
