Creative thinking is the lifeblood of your business. It is so easy to get bogged down with daily tasks and meetings and other brain-drain activities. I challenge you to try this simple experiment: For the next month set aside one hour per week to just think creatively about your business.

Where is your industry going? What moves your customers? How can you compete better?

Don’t let yourself get mentally bogged down with “we cannot” thinking. Just let your mind wander without limitations. My bet is that you will come up with at least one usable—potentially brilliant—idea for your business.
