We Ask, You Answer: Productivity Books
Question Mark

    This week sees the launch of a new series at lifehack.org: We Ask, You Answer. Every Monday I will post a question for the lifehack.org community for you to answer. The following Monday, I will post my answer along with a selection (depending on how many there are) of your responses. The idea is to give you a chance to share your knowledge with the rest of the lifehack.org community — and to give you the opportunity to see what your fellow lifehack.org readers are doing!

    Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

    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

    Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
