“Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.” – Charles Mingus
Below are some ideas on how you can develop an eye for greatness. Great things are all around you, you just need to train your self to see it.
1. Try and think about new things everyday, things that will fully engage the use and stimulation of your senses.
- Music, movies, people, philosophy, food, travel, communication, technology, sports, etc.
2. Keep a Journal, name it your book of “Thoughts and Ideas”. Each day write down everything you did.What music did you listen too? Book you read? What did you learn? What would you like to implement? What random thoughts did you ponder over?
Overtime your book can become an amazing record keeper of your mental progression. It makes a great way of sparking ideas that have been brewing in your consciousness from days to months. By constantly reviewing your book your mind will construct patterns (associations) that can spark a new great idea from all the randomness.
3. Learn to see everything that is going on around you. You can do this by not focusing your field of vision on anything in particular. Learn to simply see with your eyes and using your whole field of vision by not fixating on one single point.
When you begin to think in terms of change you will constantly see opportunities and eventually create an opportunity that was never there.
Learn to observe how your friends analyze their surroundings. You might be able to come up with a brilliant idea by observing how your friends react to their surroundings. Look close enough and you will discover a need that is currently not being satisfied.
