Here's a solid list of 100 strategies, mindsets, points to ponder, tools (with embedded links) to help you find something new. It's a varied enough list that you're sure to find something both productive and novel to try.
Confession: I was contacted by someone who works on this blog, who recommended that I cross-post a link to this article. The site hosting the blog is commercial, offering to guide you to online colleges.
