Default How to get new ideas...

Hi Gordon,

Well... I agree... It's said that original ideas don't really exist!

My old Ph.D. advisor was a bit of a "renaissance man"... Not only was he a professor in physics... He also had a psychology practice on weekends. In his younger days, he was in a band, and they even had a single!

Anyway, he once told me that there's an easy way to get new ideas... You just take one idea, put it together with another idea, and Bam! A new idea!

* Cassette player + miniaturization = Walkman

* TV + online streaming = Netflix

* Hat + toilet paper = this invention!

Okay... maybe it doesn't always work well...

Another way is to take one process from one industry, and apply it to another industry...

For example: assembly line (from the car industry) + food = McDonald's!

So... I think there's something to it!

Best wishes,
