1. I go on walks without a phone or headphones. While I walk outdoors, I get new ideas.
  2. I read a lot of old school classics. Read Ancient Greek philosophy for the best ideas — to steal and repurpose these ancient ideas in a modern context.
  3. Lift weights or workout. Hormonal rush from exercise gives birth to new ideas.
  4. Read poetry or listen to music.
  5. Play with kids, or have a deep philosophical discussion with an adult.
  6. Observe nature.
  7. Shoot photos. While shooting photos or videos I come up with ideas.
  8. Drink a lot of black coffee.
  9. Intermittent fasting during the day to keep your mind sharp.
  10. No email, social media, phone, or news to crowd out your thoughts. Quit the news and quit social media.
  11. Get to bed early (7:30pm, 8pm, 9pm). Good sleep leads to better ideas. Don’t drink alcohol or smoke weed — it messes up your sleep.
