How do you generate new and creative DIY ideas?
I was reading a great book on creativity called Thinkertoys by Michael Michalko, and I came up with my own aid for generating new ideas for my projects. I guess you would call it an acrostic.
Combine, Replace, Adapt, Find other uses, Time travel, Eliminate, Rearrange, Size. I try to apply these different operations to existing projects and come up with new variations.
What are some ways you like to generate new ideas for you DIY projects?
