Well, I'm glad you asked!
I've used a bunch of tools for generating inspiration. One of my favorites is the process of examining where I'm not being as effective as I'd like to be; looking boldly at what I'm believing is The Truth about the situation, myself, or others; examining it for truth; getting present to what I'm creating for myself and others out of that belief; and looking to see what would inspire me if I weren't believing that old, outdated belief. That's one of the processes I do in my coaching, and it's especially powerful when you examine beliefs about yourself at the level of your identity.
Another tool is to simply look at what you could let go of that you don't need anymore, and to generate something that would make a difference if you were to generate it.
For example, let's say you're facing a task that you've hated since childhood, like: doing the dishes. You could:
Let go of your resistance to it and Just Do It; and
Generate the sense of momentum that comes with completing tasks.
(ANY completion generates energy, and if you get yourself on a roll of completions, the work can be energized and even inspired. You start with one spoon and then it's easier to do one fork, and then you'll want to do one plate, etc. to the bottom of the sink. Completions generate energy.)
Let go of some old gunky thought you've been thinking (e.g., dishwashing is grunt work; you can't tell me what to do; only girls are supposed to do dishes; etc.) and
Generate something that works better (e.g., I'm creating a peaceful environment for myself; I'm expertly freeing up flow; wouldn't it be fun to sing "Madame Butterfly" at the top of my lungs while I clean the kitchen?)
I could go on and on.
