These are the illuminating views of Doug Hall, described by Dateline NBC as "an eccentric entrepeneur".

Newspapers, magazines, and radio and TV news outlets open your mind through current events and trends, through the eyes of the media.
Method: Just browse through a heap of magazines and newspapers and allow your mind to fill with images, statements, thoughts. The jumbled result can produce brand new connections.
Use magazines with lots of photographs and which are at least tied in to a limited extent with your task in hand.
Write captions, titles, names, brief descriptions as they begin to flow from your brain. Attach sticky notes to the various magazine photos, or newspaper captions, as the ideas come to you, spread them across the floor and start borrowing and swapping even more ideas.
This tool for creative thinking involves hitchhiking on other people's ideas and imaginations.
Find ordinary, commonsense people who are unaware of the preconceptions, laws, and facts surrounding your problem.
Ask for an off-the-top-of-the-head commonsense answer.
People you could approach include the waitress, taxi driver, barber, in fact, anyone you come in contact with in daily life who is in touch with the real world!
