When No New Ideas Are Generated

How do you know when it’s time to unplug? What do you do to make it happen?

At times, our marketing strategies don’t yield the desired results, despite trying various approaches. The growth we seek seems elusive, making it necessary to reconsider our tactics, whether that’s adjusting pricing, devising a new strategy, experimenting with alternative marketing platforms, tweaking our messaging, targeting a different customer base, or even introducing new products. If these efforts still fall short, it may be time to take a step back, to decompress and regain perspective.

I often find solace in vacations, peaceful beach walks, or revisiting my passion for photography, perhaps even catching up on some movies. I might not be able to completely disconnect from the digital world as I value the ability to stay connected and enjoy using my favorite mobile apps.

Does this approach always work? Not necessarily. But it occasionally provides fresh insights into the challenges I’m facing, which is a valuable starting point for innovative ideas.

What about your experiences?

  1. I did quite like this little insight, I agree that travel is an amazing way to expand and learn, and yet it is still ahrd to disconnect in the world we live in, especially for those of us who make a passive income online. The need to take photos and document our days has trumped the need to immerse completely in the experience we are having. There is truly something to be said for fully disconnecting, because it lets us appreciate our surrounds, family and partners far more thoroughly.
    Well done Mazlan. You have reminded me again that we need the time to stop and smell the proverbial roses.
