Kirby Ferguson, creator of “Everything Is a Remix offers helpful advice for formulating ideas using four-step process based upon the book A Technique for Producing Ideas by author and ad-man James Webb Young.
Step 1, create boundaries …Step 2, consume everything you can within these boundaries …Step 3, digest the research. Step 4, Drop it. Yes, move on take a vacation, go out with family and friends take a nap, clean the house, do some gardening, whatever. Then after a while your subconscious mind will complete its work and an idea will pop up. Or maybe multiple ideas will pop up, so be ready to capture them.
