Brainstorming Ideas

To become a successful Internet Marketer, all you need is one good idea, and the drive to make your idea work. It doesn’t matter how many times you come up with a potentially good idea and fail, because all that matters at the end of the day is that you can make one good idea work at least once. Nobody is going to care about your failures; because all that people will ever know about is your successful ventures.

As a poker affiliate, we can always be thinking of lots of possible ventures or niches that we could pursue. We may think up better ventures than others at times, but it’s the constant thought processes that provide us with the opportunity to come up with that one idea that will make us successful as an online poker affiliate. But how do we come up with these ideas?

Everyone is different, and so everyone has different ways of brainstorming and thinking up new possible ventures for the future. What might work for some, may not work for others, so there aren’t really any set ways that you can help make your brainstorming sessions more productive; you just have to do what works best for you. For example, some of my best ideas have come from the strangest times as you will find out soon, so it doesn’t matter how or where you get your ideas from, just as long as you can form them somehow you will be on the right track.

Some of my greatest ideas have come into my mind whilst in the shower. I’m not totally sure why, but I think that the enclosed atmosphere with little disturbance allows me to open up the creative side of my brain and picture things that I might not be able to picture in an everyday environment. I’m not sure if taking a shower would work as well for others as it has done for me; but even if you don’t think of anything groundbreaking, at least you are clean at the end of it. So although this may sound pretty strange, I’m not going to complain if it allows me to see things from different angles from time to time.

Similarly, I also find that I can brainstorm pretty well whilst I’m in bed before I get to sleep. It’s at the point in the day where I am winding down and any stress from the afternoon is put at the back of my mind, and I can let my mind wander and think about anything I like, including ideas for new poker websites or existing ones. The only problem with this is that I am liable to forget everything by the morning if I fall asleep, so I like to keep a small notepad and pen to jot down ideas so that they will be there in the morning when I wake up.

There are other times when I brainstorm throughout the day, but I would say that this is mainly due to procrastination rather than actual ‘brainstorming time’ that I would set aside. I have a slinky toy on my desk that I will occasionally play with whilst I sit back in my chair and read a few articles and blogs. I think I have probably thought up a few small ideas during these times, but considering the amount of time I spend thinking when I could be working, I would probably say it’s more of a waste of time than anything. Still, it’s good to have a break and every now and then, and if I can think up some ideas in the process then I’m not going to complain too much.

I have found that the key to brainstorming quality ideas is to think outside of the box. This is a completely overused saying, but it really does apply here. You have to take a step back and look at the poker affiliating world as a whole, and come at it from different angles. The more ways you can view the poker world, the more unique ideas you will be able to come up with. But obviously, this is always easier said than done.

I’m not sure how useful this article will prove to be for many of you… in fact you may be reading this as a way to pass the time in between writing articles or developing your sites, so you’re probably in some sort of procrastinate/think up new ideas situation that I often find myself in!

Nonetheless, I think if you take anything away from this article, it should be that you should open up your mind from time to time and allow yourself to sit back and think up new ideas for the future. All it takes is one great idea; so don’t underestimate the power of brainstorming, no matter how you may go about it. Whether its in your free time staring out the window, or in the shower like a cool cat like me, give yourself the opportunity to find that one great idea. Just make sure that you can draw the line between too much procrastination and brainstorming, and get down to work when you need to.
