Try new things with what you already have.
In 2006 I wrote a post about taking full advantage of the things you already own. Knowing every feature of your SLR or Bluray player or getting to know the features of your most-used software.
In this post I want to encourage you to try something completely new with something you use regularly. Experiment. Push. Flip over. Pull. Spin. Tilt.
Experimentation has led to some game-changing discoveries. Heat. Gmail. Electricity.
Take something you use every day. Take a good long look at it. Now, try something completely different with it. It might be fun. And, maybe, just maybe, it might be useful.
