From the former partner of Jim Simmons Rennaisance Technologies Leonard E. Baum (1931-2017) who co developed the Baum-Welch Algorithm said:
"Bad ideas are good, good ideas are terrific, and no ideas is terrible."
So come up with ideas and eventually one or two may be a good one that works. Whether it's in science, business, or life. Try and test out ideas. Have that scientist and experiment mentality and you will be successful in real life.
