A Technique for Producing Ideas by James Webb Young

A Technique for Producing Ideas

This book reveals the process your brain goes through when it comes up with ideas. It makes it tangible and teaches you to take control of the process. Being only 48 pages long, It’s a very quick read. It actually feels more like an article or a long blog post than a book, but in those 48 James Webb Young manages to concise idea-creation into a conscious 5-step process.

The 5 steps of idea generation

  1. Gathering of materials and information
  2. Working over those materials in your head trying to combine bits of information into a new idea
  3. Giving up, putting it aside and letting your subconscious work on it while you stimulate your consciousness with something completely different. Be it a movie, a book or anything else as long as it keeps your mind active.
  4. The idea pops into your head at any random time. Often while half-asleep or in the shower
  5. Shaping and developing the idea. Sharing it with others and applying the feedback.

I greatly enjoyed reading through this one, so for your own sake, please go pick up a copy :)

You can browse the book and check reviews on Amazon.

    I like this book and the review is precise, I guess. If you are interested, try this website me and my friends have been working on.
    As James Webb says, combining inspirations is essential, which is the concept of the website. We are trying to create a database of ideas/inspirations everybody can refer to, so that it helps us to create new ideas.
    The website has only a few posts at the moment however, it will be a great help to people wanting to be even creative.
