I get a lot of ideas on my way to the office, while on my motorbike. Perhaps Dublin’s traffic and pollution is good for my brain. Or maybe not. At one of our daily standup meetings this week, someone suggested that I should try wearing gloves and helmet at my desk 😀
How do you get your ideas?

I get my best ideas in the shower, when I am trying to sleep or while I am walking (anywhere). I guess things like that somehow makes the brain more relaxed and creative.
David, you are absolutely right. Often our brain just needs a bit of relaxation. On the other extreme, when I’m under pressure and I need to “force” ideas, I routinely make the most of the technique of mind mapping. People who knows me is aware that I’m probably as fanatic as Tony Buzan on its use 😉
Like David I also get my best Ideas when I’m walking, normally when I’m returning at home from Work, in the train or on the street.
Obviously, I need to listen iPod Blink 182 songs, or Metal one, to take the ‘EUREKA’
