Eggs don't hatch where scarcity-thinking roosts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Scarcity-thinking stifles curiosity and creativity and when curiosity and creativity are stifled success is elusive.

It is clear, some people fully disagree with these views...they continue to think and talk scarcity...and many people do nothing to correct that problem.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

P=2S+O...for every Problem [P], think of at least 2 Solutions [2S] and keep your eyes peeled for Opportunities [O].

Taking a P=2S+O approach to problems: that's a proven way to invent, discover, and stumble upon innovation.

And - Curiosity is the root of Innovation.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Creativity is one of the most threatening commodities. As a rule, when people observe it happening around them they feel threatened. This causes them to construct opinions and express them. When you show people your creativity the amount of advice you receive is sure to increase...

But A BIG OUCH on the quality of that advice should you choose to heed it.

Communication tip: If you want people to buy into your ideas then you must 'pre-communicate'…and over-communicate.

The Thinking Behind the Tweet

  1. Experts have been studying people connections, networks, and hubs for over 40 years. Experts concluded weak links, including the most casual interactions with people we only know briefly or through friends-of-friends, often provide the greatest rewards, including access to innovation
  2. Far too many businesses operate like sheep following the herd in their business sector. Even casual connections with people outside your business sector can open doors to tremendous innovations.

If you can not come up with a new idea then figure out a new way to use an old one.

In fact, many experts report this is the key to innovation.

A few years ago, I bought a book on this topic titled ‘Borrowing Brilliance – The Six Steps To Business Innovation’. Here is a link to the book www.borrowingbrilliance.com
