This has worked for me. 

1. passion: you need passion for something in the workplace where you are and what you use everyday as inspiration. 
2. bravery: desire to break fingers and toes not care so much what others think and be willing to break your own fingers and toes in the process. 
3. non-obvious practical application: towards a thought/tool that creates a solution for a gap that is "not-obvious". Something that could help you personally with your work that doesn't currently exist practically or conceptually.
4. Necessity: is prime. inventions that are bells and whistles don't really fly in the end. 
5. a nurturing environment: that can help further the nascent idea. If the company you work for is not privvy or caring (and most will not be), ignore them and go around them. Look for creation as an extension of yourself and drive it forth into the world regardless of the consequences.
6. keep it simple: complications ruin the greatest of invention births. 
7. envision it: draw it put., plans, schematics  flows. plans. 
8. share it with no one (the idea not the conversation) conversation is open to all. 
9. don't be a clone: strive to think different (New York is full of clones striving to sleep their way tot he middle --they will never be great).  Do something different once in a while you would not normally do. Go somewhere you don't normally go to look for inspiration. 
10. put momentum behind it and make it happen. get it noticed.

Hello All,
Merry Christmas!
I'm looking for inputs on idea generation ... i.e. conceptualization. (for the coming year :))
I know of build things that someone else wants .... but looking for inputs to decide on what to build.
Open ended question, but any thoughts from your own experiences on how you arrived and embarked on the idea would be a great start I guess.
