Ideas come from everywhere. They come from past experiences, conversations, something we’ve read or heard about, or something we would like to know about. But the best ideas often seem to come out of nowhere. I seem to get my best ideas when I’m:
- taking long walks;
- sitting on the bus, or on a park bench;
- people watching and eavesdropping in cafes and coffee shops;
- being around water: swimming and taking baths;
Regardless of where you get your ideas, make sure you write them down before you forget them. You never know, they might just turn into your next great piece.
