In the midst of any situation, silence can be a POWERFUL tool. When used effectively, it can lead to the unlocking of some of the richest ideas imaginable. Try this: take some time today to sit in quiet reflection. Find a private area you can go to for twenty minutes or more. Turn your phone off, and just sit quietly. This is not a time for napping, so during this time, make sure you are thoroughly rested and alert.

You could also do a variation of this during your daily drive to and from work. Just turn your radio OFF. Ideas will probably start flowing heavily, so when you get to where you’re going, take out a pen and some paper. Write down every idea that comes to mind. After about a week, you will likely discover some new things about yourself!

“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.” (Mark 1:35 NIV)

God Bless You!
