Default Where do you come up with great ideas?

I have great ideas when I am not distracted by the TV or computer. Usually that's in the car or shower.

Where are you when your best ideas come to you?

In the early morning the quiet time when I am enjoying my cup of coffee. It seems to get the creative juices flowing.

I keep a notepad and tape recorder on my nightstand. I oftentimes wake up in the middle of the night with a solution or idea that I need to document for later. Sometimes it is just a dream that may lead to an idea for writing.

Default Great Ideas.

I always get great ideas while I am meditating! And if I go for the idea I always get success in that!

Smile Shopping and Driving in the Car

Many of my great ideas come from shopping, when I lookings for something new to do I often walk around Gift Shops, Home Decor and Hobby Shops. Since they have a variety of items using different techiques, themes, phrases, etc. I just walk around and look at combining ideas and see what pops into my head, then expand on it... how can I make it better!

Also, when I was in Architecture school (and gainfully employed in the Architecture field) I had a relatively long commute, I would use the drive time to think about where I wanted to take my next design turn and the best way to approach it!

Thanks,
Ashley

Usually when I lie down to sleep. Lots of ideas start popping into my head. Its a good idea to keep a pen and pad by the bedside to jot the real good ones down!

Usually in Russia. Occasionally in Latvia or Finland, but only very rarely in Bulgaria. Ok, so I travel, sometimes. "Best ideas" can come to me anywhere, really, but only if I maintain my regular pattern of prayer and meditation - without those, I have no ideas at all. Really.

When I am reading in bed at night or driving by myself. Sometimes when sitting at the computer and looking out at the view of the hills out our living room window, an idea will suddenly come.
