Entrepreneur Jeff Hoffman (Priceline) spoke about how unsatisfying his one and only corporate job was. "They didn't appreciate my sense of sarcasm!" A sentiment I'm sure many of us can relate to.
His thoughts on harvesting ideas...
1. learn one new thing each day
2. follow your curiosity
3. write down one sentence about what you learned
4. assemble the pieces of the puzzle
5. study things going on in the world around you
It sounds almost Zen...be open to where you are, be here, listen...
