I work at home, alone for the most part, which means I rarely have the opportunity to be involved in a good brainstorming session. That's a shame because I absolutely love the process. One idea leads to another one and suddenly the room is filled with amazing creative energy and things "to do."
So, as you can imagine, I thought it was cool to see this list come up in my feed, design firm IDEO's seven "Brainstorming Rules":
