I'm a person who needs thinking, processing, and reflection time. If proposed an idea, I sometimes like to ponder and let it simmer for a bit rather than immediately answering. After letting multiple thoughts and ideas simmer, I will find my moments of clarity, which I like to call my lightbulb moments. These lightbulb moments provide the spark to get ideas moving forward.
Do all of my lightbulb moments come to fruition? No, not always. Those moments get written down so they won't be forgotten, because sometimes they will support or jump start the next lightbulb moment. This is where ideas are curated. It's amazing when you are able to synthesize multiple pieces of thoughts or ideas and make all the dots connect.
How do your ideas come to light?
