This week’s prompt, you have our permission to take a TV break!

What is your favorite TV commercial? Make a list of the qualities that make it great. Now do the same for your least favorite commercial: make a list of what makes it awful.
Now, think about how you can apply this to your own marketing?

This week, pull out your journal and answer the following prompt (or just think about it in your mind palace):

If you were going to include a product you make in a time capsule to be preserved for future humans, which product would you include? How would you describe its importance for the purpose of its inclusion in the time capsule?
Now … how can you apply that to the story you tell about your product – in your item descriptions, your listings, and your marketing?

With this week’s prompt,¬†it’s time to use your creativity to work through your frustrations!

Think of something that really irritates you: it could be a problem you frequently encounter, or a situation that always puts you in a bad mood whenever it comes up. Now, take out your notebook and list 10 ways you could combat that frustration. Think outside the box! If you have bees hanging out by your front door, maybe you can take up beekeeping or build them a bee palace further out in your yard. If you’ve been fighting with your spouse about who’s going to take out the trash, maybe you can hire a housekeeper to do just that chore, or build a robot that will take out the trash for you!
You never know where these creative exercises might lead – some of the world’s greatest discoveries were made by working through a frustrating situation. (Darn this mold on my experiment! Oh, hey, it’s penicillin!) You may just come up with a brand new invention – and at the very least, you’ll learn that there are ways to get around your frustrations.

For this week’s prompt, get out a piece of paper or your journal.
Write down something you’re learning right now – maybe it’s something you recently read in a business book, or you’re teaching yourself how to crochet, or you’re learning the best ways to pay your taxes, even! Write it down now, and get in the habit of repeating this prompt whenever you learn something new so you can remember what you learned long into the future.
