I would like to conduct a study which takes about 2 weeks to be completed. Prior the 2 weeks, Participants are introduced to the concept of ideation or generation of ideas, then they are asked to come up with at least 10 ideas a day. These daily 10 ideas are supposed to be in one category (For example: 10 ideas about how I can be more productive today, 10 ideas about how to solve a certain problem and etc.) .
They complete tests of creativity, subjective well-being and some other tests before the completion of 2 weeks and after 2 weeks to see if coming up with 10 ideas a day makes any changes in the results of those tests. As research indicates, creativity correlates with subjective well-being *. But is it creativity to come up with 10 ideas a day?
I am asking to please reflect on my hypothesis, as I feel something is missing, or the hypothesis can not be studied.
I also would like to ask what psychological concepts do you think may correlate with creativity or idea machine?

Towards the projected 100,000 jobs expected to be created by Berlin's Tech Start-Up Ecosystem by the year 2020, I am undertaking meta analysis of primary empirical data of what the critcal success factors for Berlin's tech start-ups could be.
Generally, 9 out 10 start-ups fail; The same failure rates also apply to new tech ventures in Berlin.
With Berlin's already conducive atmosphere for tech entrepreneurship, a decrease in failure rates could springboard the 100,000 jobs creation before or in 2020.
I would be grateful if anyone could assist with or point to any scientific literature on performance/success factors for tech start-ups in the global ecosytem, Europe and/or Berlin.
