Examine your sources of information. If you find anything with "it's obvious, everybody knows this", you have hit a rich vein of unchecked assumptions. If you take your time to actually confirm them, you are likely to find some that are not quite true, and also some that are true but never before occured to you. Both give you a tremendous advantage.

Every time you fix something, it becomes a little bit better, a little bit more unique, a little bit more yours, and a little bit more valuable (to you). Whenever something breaks, there is an opportunity to improve it and put some character into it. Don't replace it with a new, generic, lifeless object.
