Concentration, in chemistry is defined as the abundance of a constituent divided by the total volume of a mixture. The term can be applied to any kind of chemical mixture, but most frequently it refers to solutes in solutions.

So, the seven steps to having ideas are:
1- Information Material:
Information is the raw material from which ideas are born. There are two types of relevant information, specific and general.
2- Sift the information:
Work over the information, turning it over and around until you see how it all fits together. A direct pursuit of ‘meaning’ might be counterproductive. You may need to try a subtle approach, and sneak up on the topic, looking at things from various angles.
If small snippets of ideas start coming to you at this stage, write them down, even if they seem crazy.
The more you turn and sift the information, the better you understand it, the easier it will be to see and really understand the relationships. And the more ideas you will have.
3- Let the information bubble:
The next stage is to let the information bubble away for a while, keep it on simmer in your mind. You need to let your unconscious mind work on it for a time. It’s a good idea to do something else for a while, to stimulate your imagination and emotions. Try reading, listening to music, meditate, go for a walk, while your mind digests the facts. Or you could try the traditional approach – take a warm bath and wait for the eureka moment.
4- Let the ideas flow:
It’s at this stage that ideas should start to appear, as if from ‘nowhere’. This is where you hope for a ‘Eureka’ moment. The answer to your problem may appear to leap into your mind for no apparent reason.
But what if it doesn’t come? You keep going, writing down the best ideas you can come up with. If your ideas aren’t strong enough yet, don’t panic, because you’ll get to have another go at this part of the process. So take the very best ideas you can come up with, and move on to step five.
5- Develop your idea :
Now your idea needs to be shaped and moulded, turned into something real. This where your writing skills come to the fore.
6- Share your idea:
Now show your idea to others and see what they think. They may be able to add to it and make it better. That may spark new ideas, and so the process becomes ever more creative.
7- Repeat Tasks:
- Gather the information
- Sift it
- Let it percolate
- Let the ideas flow
- Shape and mold the ideas
- Share them with others
- Put the feedback into the loop; and repeat the process to strengthen your ideas.
