Start Dreaming

Hello everyone! It's me, Debbie, from Minutes Matter. Who has time to daydream? If you have not practiced the art of planned daydreaming you should give it some thoughtful consideration. You can daydream about what you want out of life, a design issue, an installation problem, marketing concepts, or where you want your business to go, then come up with solutions on how you can accomplish any task or reach any goal.

Taking time to be quiet opens up your creativity. We all know creativity comes from the right side of the brain and logical thinking comes from the left side. Many of us have the ability to use both sides; however, if we spend too much time on the logical side, it has a tendency to stifle the creative side. Daydreaming is a way to release your creative side. Other factors that could block a person's creativity are a very busy lifestyle, anger, or bitterness. Taking a vacation is one of the best things you can do for yourself, your family, and your business. After a vacation your mind is rested, provided that you don't plan a jammed-packed, fun-filled trip with little or no time to just relax and enjoy the scenery. There is an art to planned daydreaming; it is a bit like meditation. So, if you are not in the habit of taking regular daydreaming breaks, it may take some effort to get your mind to settle down.

Here is how to get off to a great start. Make sure you are in a quiet place with a cup of coffee or hot tea and cast your gaze on something that is peaceful. Spend about 15 - 30 minutes daydreaming. As your mind relaxes, start to ponder on an opportunity or a problem that needs more thought. New ideas, concepts or a different perception will start to gather and arise.

Our industry is full of creative minds and creative minds need rest in order to operate at optimal performance. So don't feel guilty or think that you are wasting time when you allow your mind to wander off into a daydream. Try it! You'll love the peaceful experience and the results are incredibly powerful.
