There are thousands of thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up the pen and writes.
–William Makepeace Thackeray
It’s crazy how many thoughts can whip around in these brains of ours – especially in this modern age of all things digital, all things super fast.
Take a moment to put pen to paper. Yes, pen to paper – forgo your keyboard for just this exercise.
Now write. Clean, careful and cohesive work is not required.
Just write whatever comes to mind, stream of consciousness-style.
What was the result? Were you surprised at the ideas that spilled on the page?
