Brainstorming was something I never enjoyed doing, until this semester. I felt once I had an idea why do I need to explore more? I constantly refused to explore further ideas since I was so set on my first one I didn’t ever see the point. In fact, I always thought to my self “what a waste of time.”
It wasn’t until this semester my professor for one of my classes really insisted we brainstorm and right down every single idea that comes to our head. We had a set class to literally brainstorm and explore and think above and beyond. There is no limit so why are we limiting our selves? She always mentioned that so much can come out of our first idea-heck, something greater can be created. My professor is extremely passionate about this and has our class always doing constant workshops that will encourage us to develop ideas and be limitless.
In class we talk about the process, that being our brainstorming ideas, sticky notes, writing how we feel, researching, inspirations, colour, and images, this my friends is what the process is all about. It is a journal that consists all my thoughts and changes throughout my journey of developing my final project. Indeed, it is a journey. We collect our ideas and build off of what we initially started with. I learned to love this process as it really did lead me to the greatest final projects. I enjoy writing sticky notes, exploring how I feel, receiving feedback and changing my ideas (I know, I ENJOY it!).
Learn to love the process.
