10 Ways to Get Inspired by the World Around You

PP sent this interesting link to me about seeing and doing things in new ways.
One quote:
"How many times have you heard someone say that there are no new ideas? While that may not be exactly true, you can learn a lot by "borrowing" ideas from the world around you. Are we condoning plagiarism? No way. Serendipitous inspiration? Absolutely."
And their 'Ten commandments':

1. Be a Borrower
2. Explore the Masters for Material
3. Enjoy the Art of Imitation
4. Look at Other Businesses
5. Observe and Take Note
6. Borrow From the Past
7. Don't be a NIHilist
8. Open Your Mind
9. Pick up the Trash
10. Stay Where You Are

How about you? Have you made had any innovative, fun ideas recently?
