Streams of consciousness

Last Friday I experienced a facilitated workshop where I had to write all the things that popped into my head. We weren’t allowed to stop for 5 minutes.

There were two remarkable steps to this process:

1. Getting all of my worries on paper

2. Having creative breakthroughs that were hiding beneath those worries

Both results felt amazing and the treatment was quite simple: just keep writing. Don’t pass judgment. Just write your thoughts.

Truth be told, I’ve done it again since then because it was so helpful. So next time you’re feeling overwhelmed, or you’re stuck on a project, just keep writing. Don’t stop until you’ve emptied your idea bucket and filled up a new one.
