Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Any ideas? None

How is it possible that we have thousands of thoughts per minute and live moments where we search for an idea and none comes to mind? Why do we have mind blockage moments?

There are physical conditions which can lead to a mind block, but most of the time it is a lack of focus or purpose. The reason for thinking about this was the moment I lived while writing this post. I had several ideas I could write about, but none seemed to stick. However, it wasn’t a lack of focus or purpose, but an overdose of possibilities.

Too much hurts as much as too little. Eventually, to overcome the mind block I decided to think about it and this is the lesson I took today. When you block while writing, painting or doing anything creative, use the blockage as fuel to start the engine of creative flow.
