Where do good ideas come from? If you're like most people, you want to know.
Here's one perspective from brilliant inventor Albert Einstein:
"I know quite certainly that I myself have no special talents. Curiosity, obsession and dogged endurance, combined with self-criticism, have brought me to my ideas."
What have you done lately that prompted you to look differently at a situation, challenge or task? How can you get a fresh perspective on life and get out of the daily grind that many people find themselves in? Try something new -- take a class, drive a different way to work each day, eat new foods, listen to a funky radio station. Look upward instead of inward. Follow some of the ideas on this website. Spend more time watching your children play and approach life with their amazing sense of wonder and openness.
