There is something magical about creating something new, but it may not be easy. Sometimes you can think up ideas on your own. You may need quiet time to meditate or get in your zone to be in the right frame of mind to focus or think differently. Other times you may want to brainstorm with others. If the problem is more complex or you need a wider range of experience than you have, other people can bring different perspectives to the table that are catalysts for new thought. Sometimes the ideas can be impromptu without a dedicated scheduled time. Whatever the case, brainstorming with yourself or others is a great way to ignite new thinking.
