Subscribe The Simple Daily Practice and How It Saved My Life In AA: One person describes how she jumped out of a four story building and hit some sort of deck on the way down, bounced, and when she landed she was not dead obviously but had broken every bone in her body. Another person took pills. Went into a coma for two months. Is still alive obviously. Nothing like that has ever happened to me.

When you lift slightly more than you can handle, you get stronger. In life, when the gun is to your head, you either figure it out, or you die. When you cut yourself open, you bleed ideas.
If you destroy your life, you need to come up with ideas to rebuild it. Or my kids would hate me. Or my friends would be disgusted by me. States of panic are special and have to be revered. This post is about HOW. Because all of your billions of thoughts have led you to right there. They came, they saw, they lost. You have to come up with a new way of thinking. A new way of having ideas. A new ways of interacting with the outside universe.
Time to change. Or sneakers. And you need that second wind in both cases or you DIE. The same thing happens in the brain. When you are about to die, a second wind kicks in.
Unless you are already able to run long distances. How long does it take this muscle to atrophy? The same as any other muscle in your body: just two weeks without having any ideas.
Many people need idea therapy. Not so that they can come up with great ideas right this second although maybe you will but so that people can come up with ideas when they need them: when their car is stuck, when their house blows up, when they are fired from their job, when their spouse betrays them, when they go bankrupt or lose a big customer, or lose a client, or go out of business, or get sick.
Not money. Money gets depleted until you go broke. But good ideas buy you good experiences, buy you better ideas, buy you better experiences, buy you more time, save your life. That was a big intro. Every day I have to check the box on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. And I get a lot of questions about it so I will try and answer them here.
If you have more questions, ask in the comments and I will answer. The below is what I do and what works for me. You will be like a superhero. Every situation you are in, you will have a ton of ideas. After I started exercising the idea muscle, it was like a magic power had unleashed inside of me. Try it for yourself. I have no reason for you to try this.
I just want to share my exerience. From where? But I use it. I was fulltime either trying to find a girlfriend or I was trying to start a business or both.
This is before I went paleo no waffles! And you know what? It worked. B How do I start exercising the idea muscle? Go to a local cafe. Then start writing down ideas. Hold on a second. The key here is, write ten ideas. You broke the ice and you stand out. D Why ten ideas? I can write down four or five right now.
But at six it starts to get hard. The same thing happens with the idea muscle. Break through this. Come up with ten ideas. For the obvious reason. You are putting too much pressure on yourself. Perfectionism is your brain trying to protect you from harm. From coming up with an idea that is embarrassing and stupid and could cause you to suffer pain. We like the brain. But you have to shut the brain off to come up with ideas. The way you shut the brain off is by forcing it to come up with bad ideas.
And now you are stuck. Instead, he offers her a job to be a high frequency trader instead. What a bad idea! OK, now go onto the next 15 ideas. G How do I know if an idea is a good idea? Maybe more if you are trying to do 20 ideas a day. The key right now is just to have good ideas. But practice makes permanent. So that later on when you do need good ideas to save your life, you know you will be a fountain of them.
H How do I execute on my idea? I divide my paper into two columns. On one column is the list of ideas. Remember, only the first step. Because you have no idea where that first step will take you. Imagine you are driving miles to your home late at night. You turn on your headlights so you can see in front of you. Activating the idea machine is how you turn the lights on so you can get home. How the heck can a magazine publisher start an airline from scratch with no money?
His first step. He called Boeing to see if they had an airplane he could lease. If the first step seems to hard, make it simpler. This is all practice. My first step: I would buy a bunch of books on how to do brain surgery. Did I just say I would be a brain surgeon without a medical degree? A real life example: In I had ten ideas for websites I wanted to build.
So my first step was to find a site like Elance and then put the spec up and find programmers in India who could make the websites for me. Nine of the ten ideas were BAD. But you only need one. A company called Odeo was a software company to help people set up podcasts. Since I do a podcast now this seems like a great idea to me.
So they raised a ton of money from professional venture capitalists. Then one of their programmers started working on a side project. The side project got a little traction but not much. But the CEO of Odeo decided to switch strategies and go full force into the side project without having a clue if it would work.
Now, Ev Williams, the founder of Twitter which was the side project , is a billionaire as a result. Nobody knew. Nobody knows.

Because I get it. And I want to tell you how I freed myself so maybe you can start to free yourself, too. I had made myself a lot of money so I bought the biggest apartment in NYC. I needed a ladder to get to my comic books.

Love was the most disgusting thing in the world to me. What the hell was he talking about? Love was living in another neighborhood at that time. Or another planet. Or finding a quarter on the ground.

Kagalkis For yet anothersome of the elements of a good daily practice can cultivate skills and business ideas. Those happen to just be the things that I personally do. Which makes me eat like crap for the rest of the day since I already cheated. I strive to spend thirty minutes each day on the class, listening to the lectures, taking notes, and pausing things when I want to think or look other things up.
