– Change your surroundings. Get out of the office, go to events, bring things into your office, expose yourself to media (blogs and podcasts!). Keep your surroundings fresh.
– Surround yourself with a variety of people. If you work in a team, interact frequently with the rest of the company. Participate in online groups and conversations (Twitter! Facebook! Blog Talk Radio!). The more people, the more potential ideas.
– Give to get. Unblock your mind by helping others. Sometimes we get great ideas through solving someone else’s problem.
