In my quest to explore new media, I have downloaded and posted to Anchor. Anchor is a social audio service that acts as a radio. It will even take what you’ve posted as audio and automatically create a podcast for you.
The audio length is 5 minutes, which is plenty for a radio format. I am going to post daily and my theme is ten ideas per day. That’s it. It’s based on the book Become an Idea Machine by Claudia Azula Altucher.
If you can come up with ten ideas per day, every day, you will strengthen your “idea muscle” making it possible for you to accomplish anything you want, get out of or into any circumstances you can think of.
Lost your job? Write down ten ideas you can do today to find a new one.
Want to write a book? Write down ten ideas for things you could write about.
Need a break from routine? Write down ten ideas for activities you could try in your local area.
If you can’t think of ten, think of twenty.
The reason I love that advice is because it makes you stop qualifying each idea. You just go with it. Some will be bad. No, most will be bad. But that’s not the point. Some will be good and 1 or 2 will be GREAT.
I used this very practice for almost a year daily and I have used it to find our new house, to make extra income, to buy a rental property and many, many more things.
I have called this project Idea Burst Radio to try and capture the essence of becoming an idea machine.
