      Personally I look at how other people have solved other similar problems elsewhere and use that knowledge with my own to solve a problem.

      By coming up with lots and lots of ideas, most of them are bad or dull but a couple here and there are clever. Parts can generally go through 50-80 different sketches and models and ideas before we find the “right” one. It’s remembering that the bad ideas aren’t failures, they’re just part of the path to the good ideas.
