I was flipping through some old idea journals and I found this little diagram I drew, arrogantly titled, “David’s Guide To Cultivating Ideas”

I’ll scan it in, but it was 5 circles: Live/Observe, Wonder, Tinker, Learn, and Build with various arrows connecting them and the arrows were labeled “Share.”

You can draw it yourself:

Live/Observe points to Wonder
Wonder Points to Tinker
Wonder Points to Learn
Tinker Points to Learn
Learn Points to Tinker
Learn Points to Build
Build Points to Live/Observe

As I stared at the diagram, I had this odd thought, “What an incredibly interesting way to tag blog entries.”
