There are as many ways to find a project as there are people. But, from what you described as your process of casting about society for break points, maybe you might try looking within.

For example, look at your hobbies, work flow, interests, fears, and dreams. The trick here is to look at your Self as another person. Try interviewing your Self and inspecting your life. All the while you are looking for ways to help your Self. The idea being, your life and systems are not perfect - nobody's are - and along the way you'll find something interesting. And, since you are bound to be like others (aka a market segment) you might have found a project!

Cooincidentally, this is also a great way to improve your life in general. A good self-inspection once in a while is worth the effort.

Another, more practical, tip is to always have something to write / record with. And use it a few times with ideas that don't matter. It's a pipeline thing. Think of the source of your project ideas as coming from a muse - if you don't listen they don't speak. So, write everything down and listen hard.

And, of course, have fun!

There are actually 2 types of potential candidates for successful startup ideas. The first one, as you mention is to find a solution to a problem; the second one is to improve the experience of a service that solves the first option, in other words, take their business model and make it better, you can do this by making a product cheaper, easier to use, etc.

Notice that you don't necessarily have to be the one to come up with an idea, there are people who already have an idea looking for co-founders

Most people think it's all about the idea. It's not. Everyone has ideas. The had part is to execute on the idea.. :)
