How? Asking others, looking around, watching clips on the Internet, exploring a museum, walking in a park, reading a book (eBook or a paper one), using a tablet and third-party software, etc. Open yourself in a big way, look around and pay attention with a focus.

Curiosity is the key to creativity.
