Planet of Unconscious Thinkers

What do you do on your best days, when you have a great idea? If you knew, wouldn't you do it all the time to improve your hit rate?

Is it something that you don't do on those days when you have a great idea? Are you at all aware of what you don't do on those good days?

Is it what you don't do on the bad days? Perhaps it's what you do on the bad days that's getting in the way.

Practice Doesn't Make Perfect

Practice Doesn't Make Perfect

If you're not particularly conscious of your creative thinking abilities, you're not a freak. Most people aren't very aware when it comes to thinking. Most people simply don't think about how they think.

We all have good days; we all have bad days. The good days feel so good. "Yes!" "A great idea!" "A solution to a problem!" There's nothing quite like it.

And then there are the bad days. "Oh no, it's not coming." "Oh, this isn't any good." Or worse yet, sometimes it feels like a great idea— "Yes!" And a few days later. . . . "What was I thinking?"

We're so inexact.

Why the inconsistency? Because, for the most part, we're unaware of what we do when we come up with great ideas, and we're unaware of what we do when we don't come up with great ideas or when we come up with less-than-great or even absolutely horrible ideas. We're simply unconscious thinkers.
