How a “Braindump” Board in Trello Will Make You More Creative

If you're a content creator, you'll love the technique I'm sharing with you today.

Whether it's writing blog posts, creating videos, hosting webinars and livestreams or creating podcast episodes, content creators all face the same problem: you have to keep coming up with new ideas. You have to keep producing content and keep it fresh and interesting.

In today's video, we'll look at a setup I create in Trello, which solves this problem. It may seem strange, but setting up this system actually makes you more creative and makes it easier to produce more ideas.


Personal Productivity + Braindump?

The method I show here can work by itself. It can also work within some other system of note taking or task management, although I think Trello is really ideally suited for it.

If you've followed my previous videos on how to use Trello and you've set up a personal productivity board, the braindump board can be used in addition to it. In fact, I recommend it, because the braindump board helps you keep your main productivity board clean and organized.
