Take an Idea to Bed With You

 We are such stuff as dreams are made of, and our little life is rounded with sleep.- William Shakespeare

Have you ever had a problem with your business that you just couldn't figure out?

7 Steps to Solve Nagging Business Problems:

1. Read about your last project 20-30 minutes before you go to sleep.
2.Turn off the TV and Internet.
3.Don't talk about anything serious before you go to sleep! You don't want to mull that over in your dreams at night.  Keep it light!
4. Put a notepad and a pen or pencil next to your nightstand.
5.Once you hit the bed relax your mind. While you are asleep let your mind do the work.
