Ran into this article while on CNBC for a class: http://www.cnbc.com/id/35928512/Why_Your_Best_Ideas_Don_t_Happen_At_Work After some discussion around the dorms I figured it might be good here too. For me, I get my best ideas/solutions right before I go to bed. I take a bit of time to fall asleep, and for some reason I always come up with a good idea or plan on how to get something done. I really should put a pen and paper on the nightstand. As for the article, I think it has a point. I'll worry about something for a while and think I have no way out, but lone behold a little time after moving on it'll come back up somehow. Focus: Where/When do you get your best ideas? Focus #2: Comment on the article.
