One thing that was a constant lesson from being back in school is the necessity to create on a constant basis. School forces you to crank out ideas and concepts without all the inspiration and research that goes into a design project in the real world. The only way you can really be creative in these circumstances is to spew ideas without restriction. All those little thoughts that pop in your head that you think are ridiculous or will never work? Write them down, sketch them out and flesh them out! You will be surprised at how some of them come together.
