#sparkchamber 051517 Andy Bombick 

Today we welcome Andy Bombick to the #sparkchamber. Andy is a benefits guy and an autism Dad. He thought he would spend his life thinking Big Thoughts and not sweating life’s minutiae. Instead, he finds that his life is the minutiae.

1.] Where do ideas come from?

Everything we think and believe is a combination of information we’ve come in contact with in our lives. Ideas are just bits of that information, combining in a novel way. Or, at least, a way that’s novel to you.

2.] What is the itch you are scratching?

I’m not really scratching anything right now. I have itches, but they are sort of hanging out in the background.

3.] Early bird or night owl, tortoise or hare?

I’m definitely an early bird. I don’t really sleep much, so I guess I’m a night owl, too, but my brain definitely works better in the morning. And I’m probably a hare in tortoise’s clothing.

4.] How do you know when you are done?

You’re done when you decide to be done, right? You can be not done forever, if you let yourself.
