Take some time to consider each word individually and in combination. Be sure to WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING that comes into your mind no matter how silly or irrelevant they may seem at first
Congratulations! You have just expanded your perceptions of your subject far beyond your normal patterns of thinking in ways you would not have otherwise considered.
After a number of new associations have been generated, perhaps several dozen, you can begin to explore and discover ways to apply your associations to the matter at hand. Applying random meaning to a subject suggests ways of looking at the subject in a different context from which the subject is normally viewed. Discovering new ways to look at your subject will start to generate new ideas automatically.
ALWAYS RECORD EVERYTHING for later review. Optimal ideas often need time to gel. The old saying - "sleep on it and things will look different in the morning" is a very reliable piece of ancient wisdom. A consistent routine of short relaxed sessions is generally the best strategy for success. Regular practice of 10 - 15 minutes per day can produce astonishing results.
The article is focused on amplifying your creativity to generate new original ideas. Evaluating your new ideas to discern the optimal methods of implementing them in the real world requires critical thinking. Critical thinking is an esoteric blend of logic and creativity which is too involved a subject for this type of article format.
Just remember that generating new ideas is about quantity rather than quality. It's like drilling for oil. You will often drill many dry holes before you finally hit the gusher that brings the fortunes of success.
Keep in mind that due to our education, and the many other influences in our world, most of us lean toward Left-Brain thinking. Random Word Stimulation is by nature a decidedly Right-Brain activity. Depending on your current brain state balance you may find Random Word Stimulation awkward to use at first. This is why it is highly recommend to limit your initial sessions to 10 - 15 minutes to avoid frustration.
The brain can take a few days or more to restructure its neural network to accommodate this new type of thinking. If you are having trouble getting started don't worry about it. Just keep trying short relaxed sessions until you acquire the habit of producing results. Remember it's the effort of trying that triggers the brain to adjust and it WILL adjust if you give it the time and patience it needs.
