For anyone who doesn’t dig the idea of structured journaling time, I submit to you “Brilliant Thoughts in a Box,” as described in this week’s Art Marketing Action newsletter. Here are the rules:
- You realize that you have a gift that you need to articulate to others. You recognize that you need words to do this.
- You capture your ideas as soon as you have them with whatever means (paper, computer, voice recorder) is available. That means you have to have at least one of these tools with you at all times. If you don’t do this, your ideas will end up sharing a space in history with 8-track tapes.
- Your Box isn’t sacred. It welcomes the imperfect into it. In fact, it is hungry for the imperfect. Feed it!
- You don’t edit. That’s for later. For now, you collect and everything is important.
- No one sees the box but you. It has to trust your secrecy.
- There are no rules.
Capturing your brilliant thoughts will help you with your statement and so much more for your marketing. How do you do this?
