The creative process is the act of making new connections between old ideas or recognizing relationships between concepts. Creative thinking is not about generating something new from a blank slate, but rather about taking what is already present and combining those bits and pieces in a way that has not been done previously.

At first, you learn. During this stage you focus on 1) learning specific material directly related to your task and 2) learning general material by becoming fascinated with a wide range of concepts.

Examine what you have learned by looking at the facts from different angles and experimenting with fitting various ideas together.

I like very much the thought of leveraging on established ideas , rather than starting from scratch. Why reinvent the wheel when we can stand on the shoulders of giants?
