Since I talked about ideas yesterday, I thought a post on Ideas for Generating Ideas written by Nate Williams was appropriate. Here are a couple of points that stuck with me:
- "Record and retrieve inspirational moments and ideas – The best ideas usually come at inconvenient times, such as, walking the dog, taking a shower, waiting in line at the supermarket, etc. The key is to record these ideas and moments of inspiration so you can later develop them into something great when you are in the right place and have the time."
- "Find patterns in good ideas – By looking at various ideas we can classify them into idea categories. We then can use these categories as a framework to help explore any particular subject."
