“There’s so many good ideas out there in the world and it’s a shame that not more people realize the power of picking up ideas from other people regardless of which country, which continent or which culture these particular ideas or these particular people live in. So for the sake of your own creativity, think beyond borders.” he says.

All ideas are just recombinations of already existing ideas.”
