    1. Be appreciative of other good ideas. Be a fan of quality so you can recognize it, when you arrive at it yourself.

    2. Free your mind, be yourself - No fear, no self-judgment, no taboos, no dogma, no such thing as a wrong notion, clear the way for your brain to make innovative connections without fear that it will be judged. Examine your wildest ideas for secret usable solutions hidden within the craziness.
    At least Icarus tried!

    At least 5 thumbnails of ideas per day, every day.

    I am reminded of the bit in Art & Fear where one group of ceramics students gets an A if they create just one perfect pot in the whole semester. The other group gets an A if they produce a large enough number of pots in the semester. Apparently the students in the first group were largely frustrated and few got an A. In the second group there was much less frustration, many more got an A, and counter-intuitively the best pots in the class were from this group of students.

    In my experience, generating ideas has not been so different.

    hey guys, a little update. thanks for all the great posts. i started to follow your hints and it really helps.

    -> Quantity over Quality
    -> Combine unrelated things
    -> Analyzing other Ideas and think about how they may have come together
    -> sketching a LOT
    -> if I don't have a problem to solve, I make one up
    -> allowing myself some 'empty' time, without iphone, music, reading, occupying my mind however
    -> catch the information life throws at you and make informationade

    To be continued..
