Where good ideas come from

Some people think that the ability to consistently generate good ideas comes down to being innately intelligent or creative, but that’s simply not true. This course will teach you about the most fruitful environments where good ideas thrive and how to create these environments in your life. Over ten lessons, you’ll learn how to nourish hunches, promote serendipity, observe mindfully, find spare parts for your ideas, and much more.
