Diving and swimming

  • Letting go completely while you process that information (actually walking away from it), to allow good ideas to bubble up from the subconscious and into clear view.

Exaptation

Exaptation

This is the ability to reach beyond a specific field of expertise and create new uses for an older thing. It’s about taking one thing and using it for a different purpose than intended.

Fill the well

Fill the well

This well is the place you take all your ideas (no matter how abstract they are) and get them stored as actual information, so they can be used. 

Get your ideas into a recorded state. Doing this over time means your idea well becomes both parts of your brain and a physical extension of it. Use a notepad, Pinterest or any place you find suitable.
