At the last Council Blogs we took a chapter from the Breakfast Blogging Club in Oakland CA (land of warm weather). To help plan the topics for 2011 we went through the brainstorming exercise. We added the power of the group by sharing our 4 minute brainstorm with each other. We found that by sharing the ideas with each other we DOUBLED, yes, DOUBLED the ideas we had individually. Other thoughts that surfaced, “Stay Focussed” and “Have Idea sounds.” Someone’s email announcment sound is the “Jetson doorbell”. That’s a stimulus for some people.
