  • Think like a 7-year-old.The world was magical when we were young. The good news is that, even though we’ve grown up, the world hasn’t changed all that much. Observe your surroundings with curiosity and you will unveil new possibilities.

Once you learn how to consider different scenarios, you will be brave enough to suggest a crazy idea that just might be the right solution.
  • When coming up with ideas, take some time to reflect on what you’re thinking about. Keeping a journal is a great way to note potentially useful ideas or to capture thoughts when inspiration hits. Creating a mind map is also a good way to elaborate on what you already know to see if there is something you missed.
