Same thing can happen when writing a speech. How do we overcome it? Here is what I have found helpful.
Read for 10 minutes on the subject at hand.
Fresh ideas will usually get the juices flowing. Read an article or two online. Caution: Set a timer so the Internet does not suck you into a two hour detour of wasted time.
Stand up and start delivering your speech.
Running through what I have out loud almost always helps the ideas to start coming. If I have nothing yet, I’ll just start talking.
Table the speech till your next optimum work time.
Everyone has a time of day when they are the most alert and productive. Mine is anywhere between 5:00 and 11:00 A.M. That is 2-3 times more productive than 7:00 to Midnight.
