I was reminded of one of the optimal ways I can get myself to that place where not only do I have the ideas flowing, I also have the motivation to carry me through the activity (however many of them).
Surprisingly, it’s using a REALLY old tablet (until I figure out how to root it so I can ‘up’ the system storage), which due to its age…I only am able to keep a limited amount of apps. One I use often is Opera Mini (somehow even less resource exhaustive than the native browser app) to collect posts that would remind me when it is time to create content (either for public consumption — or for clients).
Maybe it’s while having a meal (I’m okay eating near phones or tablets — but not a laptop of desktop…) or while cooking.
Does one activity come to mind that just gets you there?
- “You can’t get in the flow if your attention is on what you need to do rather than what you’re actually doing now.” – Jessica Stillman (Inc)
- In the zone when writing fiction
- “Don’t try and transition from filing your taxes (or hanging out on twitter) direct to working on some creative project.”– Peter Shallard

Was it was an action!?
Better do that first before sending me that note!
