Ideaflow and How to Use It in Your Private Practice

As a private practice owner, one of the most important things you can do is to be creative. After all, being creative is what will help you beat the competition, stand out from the crowd, and attract new clients/patients. But how do you know if you're being creative? One measure of creativity is ideaflow.


According to Jeremy Utley, ideaflow is the "process of having multiple ideas and then selecting the best one." It's important to let the creativity come and to embrace the flow of multiple ideas. I am of the mindset that there is always a solution to any problem that I am faced with. This is how my grit and determination have allowed me to build a successful private practice.


When you're in ideaflow, you're coming up with new ideas constantly. And not just any old ideas, but good ideas. Ideas that are worth pursuing. So how do you know if you're in ideaflow? Here are three signs:

  • You're constantly coming up with new ideas.

  • You're not afraid to experiment or try new things.

  • You're open to feedback and willing to revise your ideas based on feedback

If you're not in ideaflow, don't worry. There are things you can do to get into it.

  • The first step is to simply start brainstorming. Set a timer for 10 minutes and write down every single idea that comes into your head, no matter how crazy it might seem. Once the timer goes off, look at your list and see if there are any ideas worth pursuing. If not, don't worry; just keep brainstorming until you find an idea that's worth pursuing.

  • Another way to get into ideaflow is to experiment with different brainstorming techniques.

    • One popular technique is called "braindump." To do a braindump, simply set a timer for 5 minutes and write down everything that's on your mind, no matter what it is. This can be a great way to get all of the scrambled thoughts out of your head so that you can focus on generating new ideas.

Being creative doesn't mean that you have to reinvent the wheel; it simply means that you need to be open to new ideas and willing to think outside the box. One of the best ways to be more creative is to constantly seek out new information and inspiration. I like to read books, listen to podcasts, and attend conferences related to my industry so that I can always be learning and growing.


Another way to boost your creativity is by taking some time for yourself every day. This can be something as simple as going for a walk or spending some time in nature. I find that when I take some time for myself, I'm able to think more clearly and come up with new ideas more easily.

If you're looking to build a successful private practice, it's important that you focus on being creative. By thinking outside the box and constantly seeking out new information, you'll be able position yourself ahead of the competition. Remember, ideaflow is your measure of creativity; embrace it and let it flow!
