Whack Your Head Wednesday

Let Your Mind Wander

#15 Much of our thinking is associative: one idea makes you think of another -- no matter how logical the connection. Use this ability to generate new ideas. Look at something and make associations based on whatever you can think of: function, location, size, shape, sound, personal, opposite, weird, etc..Example-- work: play: actor: star: sun: light: bulb: tulips: kiss: love: tennis: net: profit: prophet: oracle: aruicle: heart: life. What things does your idea remind you of? What do each of these remind you of? How can you use this cluster of associations to develop your idea?
