Nouns in math are the Arabic numerals, fractions, variables, expressions, figures, infinity, Pi and imaginary numbers like i.
The verbs of math are equalities and inequalities, addition, subtraction, division, multiplication and many other operatives like Sin, Cos, Tan etc.
The rules of mathematics, like syntax and grammar, are international, with the same structure used universally. Greek and Latin languages are used to denote the various symbols.
A lower idea-flow is this sense that you don't have as many ideas as you used to. Reading more encourages ideas to flow.
You can't create time, you can only re-allocate it. To find the time for improving your idea-flow means that you have to find ways to cut back on other things.
One way to improve ideas is to think of sources of information as being in memetic buckets. If your idea inputs come from the same memetic bucket, your outputs will replicate the same concepts in that bucket. Your thoughts won't be new or particularly interesting.
To combat this:
When you catch yourself thinking "that's crazy," try to figure out why someone would believe that idea.
People are mostly logical, their starting point is just different. When you try to see if you can find the premises for someone's beliefs and ideas, their conclusions will make more sense. Even if you disagree, understanding where they are coming from will help you better understand your own ideas.
Cut your sources of information so you don't hear the same thing in five different ways.
Realize when you should let go of certain inputs, even if you enjoy them.
Developing good ideas is an active process. The ideas that are starting to form should be coaxed out of you.
When it comes to setting strategy, there are benefits to both popular and loner strategies.

When we need to make a decision, we tend to ask "What should we do?" However, it narrows our thinking to one right decision.
If we ask the question: "What could we do?" it broadens our decision-making frame, because we can consider multiple futures. Could ask what if, what else, and why not.
For example: Ask what would be the equivalent in your industry of something that’s working well in another.
Strategy development and internal reviews often center on precedents, trends, and due diligence. They address"what will happen." Change the question to "what may happen" :
Contrary to popular belief, daydreaming is actually an evolutionary trait specific to human beings which harnesses our creative power and enables us to function in an effective manner.
Research shows that a creative distraction like daydreams loosens us form our never-ending stream of thoughts and provides possible solutions to our problems, while enhancing our sense of identity.
Our brains have many regions, like the prefrontal cortex, medial temporal lobes and the parietal cortex cluster, allowing us to imagine and visualize complex scenarios and their possible outcomes inside our minds.
This makes daydreaming a complex and rich phenomenon which we take for granted.
