    Author, Gail Blanke recalls a trip to an important publisher. This was a big deal and she wasn’t feeling quite up to it while walking on Third Avenue in New York City to meet the editor. But then Gail found her song…

    That did it, all right. I was no longer walking; I was strutting, I was smiling, I was bursting with energy. I was unstoppable. About 20 minutes into our meeting, that editor said, “You know what, Gail? We really want to buy your book. We love your energy!” Now I sing my song every time I walk into a challenging, ego-on-the-line situation. And it always works. Oh, I don’t mean I always make the sale. But I always bring my best self into the room — whether it’s an interview, a presentation, or a cocktail party filled with people I don’t know.

    It’s worth noting that Gail actually sings the song. It makes a big difference, I think, making the words and melody come out of your mouth.

    According to Patricia Preston-Roberts, a board-certified music therapist in New York City, singing can lower heart rate and decrease blood pressure. Medically speaking, it’s an instant stress-reliever of sorts.

    You may have a tune that immediately springs to mind. Likewise, you may have a little library of do-or-die tracks that can get you through anything. What are they?

    Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

    Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

    • Gather new material, both specific and general.
    • The Mental Digestive Process
    • Drop it
    • Poof, the idea appears
    • Work it

    Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
