#1. There is no one right answer.
#2. The virtue is the thinking and free-associating.
#3. Whole brain means WHOLE brain creativity - always harness the power of your whole (not half) brain.
#4. Suspend judgment - especially during the idea generation phase.
#5. Let there be FUN!
#6. Learning is most fundamentally a MENTAL process.
#7. If at first you can't think of it, think again. And again. And again.
#8. The best way to get good ideas is to have lots of them.
#9. Involve as many senses as possible.
#10. For sense of security of completeness, most people need things to have a beginning, a middle, and an end.
