Stuck on a creative project, marketing or otherwise?  Try some of these tactics…

– Remind yourself of your main goal.
– Boil your message down to just six words.
– What would you do if you had half the current budget?
– What would you do if you had an unlimited budget?
– What would your solution be if you could create a technology that doesn’t currently exist?
– What’s the most laughably awful solution you could come up with?
– Give yourself ten minutes to come up with as many ideas as possible – no stopping, no editing.
– What would the absolutely easiest/simplest (not necessarily the best) solution look like?
– Picture the leading expert in this field. How would she handle this?
– Have an idea you’re not sure will work? Write it down completely, giving yourself permission to come back later to edit as needed or throw it out entirely.
– Clear your head for ten minutes — take a walk, a drive, a shower, or a swim.
– Remind yourself of your main goal.
