Everything in the world can be viewed as offering a possible solution for a challenge at hand. Use the grid below to stimulate your creative thinking! To generate a new possibility, select an item or two from the grid, and consider its attributes, characteristics, associations, etc. Force connections back to your challenge, until new solutions emerge. Or, use the bubble to add builds and twists to ideas you've already generated.
