    Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

    • Gather new material, both specific and general.
    • The Mental Digestive Process
    • Drop it
    • Poof, the idea appears
    • Work it

After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
