Where do great ideas come from? Other ideas, some great, some not so great. They also come from how we interact with those ideas.
That may sound simple, yet it is very often the case. Pondering a word, a subject, a piece of artwork or listening to music can often inspire us. That inspiration produces the spark of an idea, which can develop into an even better idea.
Seeing something new is often the result of seeing something old and asking what would happen if we tweaked this or that.
Look around at the world, listen to other people talk about their lives, ask questions, be interested in what's going on around you. The result is often fresh inspiration.
Interact with those new ideas by taking notes, writing about them, reading related articles and books, watching videos and listening to speeches. Learn to develop your own system and you'll seldom be at a loss for what to create.
