"This comes from a former Nike engineer, Tiffany beers, one time beers and her team were working on a new shoe and they were on the brink of burnout. So she gave a unique assignment to one of the makers on the shoot team. She had him make a shoe. Do they could survive a five mile run using only materials found at Home Depot? The maker nailed the project and got his groove back to help finish off the shoe project. They'd originally been working on. So this life heck says that when you're stuck in a rut change, one element of the thing, you're working on that you would never think to question or change in the shoe example, the maker was probably just considering the design and look of the shoe and had the materials already set in mind, you can play this advice to just about anything. If you're at a blank canvas with a paintbrush, and you're trying to think of something to create maybe try replacing your paintbrush with sponge, if your decorating a cake, and you're not sure which color of ICU should use ditch the icing all together in try using something that's not even edible like fresh flowers. If you're working on a new creative essay, and no topics coming to mind, try thinking of what you shouldn't write about and write about only that get back in the game by flipping it keep it fresh. And who knows what you can"
