Framework First

Sometimes when I sit down to write a message, I already have kind of an outline I’ve created.  I’ve noticed that when I’ve already organized my thoughts, I am WAY more productive and creative as I write.

Sometimes when our Creative Team sits down to plan out a series, we already have some ideas on paper to guide the direction we’re gonna go in.  And I’ve noticed that when we have that, we’re WAY more productive and creative as we plan.

So … I’ve changed my approach.  I will write out the sequence of ideas for my message before I ever sit down to write the message.  And we will brainstorm ideas for our creative meeting before we ever start really brainstorming creative ideas for a series.

I wonder if there’s some way you can apply this to your life and your creative endeavors?
