Create a New Idea Every Day: People will say that ideas are a dime a dozen, but I think they’re wrong: I think the first 10 might be worth a dime, but the last two could be worth their weight in gold. I would suggest that the designer without an idea isn’t a designer. Record them, capture them, and go back to them.
I wish I started jotting down ideas early in my career. So many half-baked ideas turn to real start-ups. Coulda, woulda, shoulda.
