Everything begins with an idea.
We need a constant supply of ideas in our day to day life to execute things or to win more often; they are our most fundamental currency.
So, what is an idea? According to James Webb Young, ‘An idea is nothing more or less than a new combination of old elements.’ Further, to combine old elements into new, Young tells us that the capacity to bring old elements into new combinations depends largely on the ability to see relationships; he says it’s a habit of mind which ‘can be cultivated’.
Here I mention a few ways how to cultivate that habit or how to keep ‘Ideas Flowing’.
It’s simple, change the scenery, get out, take a bus, go for a walk or travel place and just observe. Observe the things, people, the setting of the place. It sorts out mind and brings new ideas while you get acquainted with new scenarios.
