I visited a favorite blog of the famous Stuart Danker. While I was being entertained by his post, reading it was a painful delight at the same time. It was like shafts of hard truth were being thrown at me. But then again, I asked myself – do I have to generate content easy or hard?

Trying it easy – a concept opposite the conventional approach to doing things with 110% of your effort, can help you generate your best ideas for content writing.

I came across a preview of a book, Accidental Genius by Mark Andrew Levy. With the two secrets revealed in generating one’s best ideas, Mr. Levy has persuaded me already to buy his book online. The table of content shows an engaging list to go through.

I can’t help but agree with what Mr. Levy thinks of mental coach Robert Kriegel’s thought that says:

“Trying easy will help you in any area of your life.”

– Robert Kriegel

Mark Andrew Levy agreed by saying,

“Rather than approach your writing with your teeth gritted, demanding instant virtuoso solutions from yourself, LOOSEN UP and ease it into your best 90 percent effort.”

This method of ‘trying it easy’ applies to whatever content you write – articles, blog posts, tweets, emails, product descriptions, etc. Ironically, it is the easiest method to spawn ideas for your content.

The book listed some ways how to do it. Have you initially thought about how you will do it?

Somehow this method is related to breaking through writer’s block, as I have written in this post.

“Allow yourself time. Do not force yourself to break through the block. Instead, stop writing, relax, and do not think of anything – perfection, rejection, and all the things that break the rhythm of writing.

Try doing the things that make you happy – drink coffee, eat a slice of cake, or gobble a plate of your mom’s spaghetti – anything that relaxes your mind for a little while.

At the same time, try to think of the topic for your content. You will discover that ideas flow because you can focus. You conceive ideas easily because you are not pushing yourself.”

Don’t be hard on yourself, okay? Take it easy while you generate ideas for your content.


  1. I like trying easy. I had a plan and a goal for this month. But, when I caught COVID, everything changed, and I had to let go of the plan and the goal. And that was okay.


    1. Hugs to you, Alice. Our family had a bout with COVID in November, 2020. It changed our way of life.

      Hoping you’ll get the best of care and recover from the disease.


  2. Some days are tougher than others to come up with ideas, that’s for sure. I find that getting a good sleep and taking regular breaks at the desk help a lot.


  3. Lovely post. And I’m honoured by the mention, Bing! It’s so cool how discussions can continue sparking throughout the blogosphere, and who knows which of you readers will continue this subject in their own blogs? I might need to check out Mister Levy’s book now. Thanks for this!


    1. You’re welcome, Stuart! You deserve such honor. 🙂 Every time I visit your blog, I feel refreshed for some reason. You weave words beautifully. Very creative. It’s seldom one stumbles upon beautifully written blogs.
