How do I use a Random Word Generator for Brainstorming?

It is actually pretty easy.  When you feel like you have run out of ideas toward your goal, just grab a random word and figure out an angle or way that the word might be related to your goal.

It could be a characteristic of the word, the opposite of the word or just simple “word association“.  What does the word make you think about?  How can that be tied to your goal?

Random Word Generator:

Simply click on the “Random Word” button and a random word will be generated for you. This is done via javascript so if it does not work, you may want to update the java version on your computer.


Brainstorming Rule # 1:

Remember, there are no wrong answers when you are brainstorming. The value of an idea or action step will be evaluated later. The goal of brainstorming is to come up with as many answers as possible so you have more options to choose from.

A Random Word Generator is a great tool to spark your creativity and can be used either by yourself or with a partner or group. The more people who are involved, the more associations you will find for each word and the more ideas you will generate for your project.
