How to Brainstorm Better?
Whether you are a student, a professional or run a business, brainstorming is one of the most important activities that you must be doing regularly.
Brainstorming accounts for all the long hours you spend thinking, and planning, and contemplating.
These you do in order to find better solutions to your problems or to plan or the times ahead.
However, more often than not, our brainstorming sessions prove to be of little use.
This is because we often lose concentration and find ourselves lost in our own thoughts!
Here are 3 best ways to improve your brainstorming, and get better results:
1. Define your problem/situation/purpose
One of the key issues faced while brainstorming is the lack of crystal clear purpose or the definition of the problem you may be trying to solve.
Unless you are specific about and understand what you want to do, you will find yourself wandering away from time and again.
Therefore, it is important to define things, to begin with!
2. Consider all that you can!
When you start off with brainstorming, there are certain points that come naturally to your mind.
When you start exploring these points, you miss out on a lot of other possibilities and elements that need to be considered for a holistic view of the problem.
So, consider stopping for a while and see if you have covered almost everything important?
3. Do a feasibility study
When you brainstorm, your thoughts may go wild and stray many times.
In such situations, you may start delivering solutions that are hypothetical and practically not feasible.
Such scenarios may ruin the whole purpose!
Therefore remember to keep giving yourself a kick on the back every now and then, and staying practical in terms of your solutions.
Remember to remember these points the next time you brainstorm, and Happy Brainstorming!
