Where Good Ideas Come From

I recently read Steven Johnson’s “Where Good Ideas Come From”.   It had some good ideas, even if the biological analogies were a stretch.   The basic ideas are summed up at the end:

  • Go for walks
  • Get some sleep (it wasn’t mentioned in this book, but probably splitting up your night’s sleep would be good)
  • Make Mistakes
  • Have Hobbies
  • Talk to strangers
  • Mix ideas together
  • Take good notes
  • Live in or near a city
