Unlocking Idea Flow: 5 Ways To Fuel A Constant State Of Innovation

Innovation means different things to different people

1. Read, watch, listen, observe, and gain exposure to new ideas.

There’s a great Fast Company piece titled, “Want to be unstoppable? Work at an intersection.”

2. Change your environment, and see how it impacts your creative output.

Not all environments are created equal.

3. Check in with yourself: how often do you challenge yourself to innovate?

Every week, or every month, or even every couple of months, do a quick self-assessment.

  • Where did it come from?
  • What fueled it?
  • Where were you?
  • Who around you do you find inspiring?
  • What gets you in the creative flow?

4. It’s all about openness.

Creativity is an emotional process.

5. Guts and bravery

Building on the above, bravery is a big part of innovation.
