One strategy to help in the deliberate practice of idea generation is to impose different constraints or scenarios that allow us to look at the problem from different angles.

Here is a list of constraints you could use to spark ideas. Which one of these would you start with?

C. Think of ideas that would be very expensive, and others that would cost nothing.
D. Something else not mentioned here
