Author of the Idea Book, Fredrik Haren was my guest today on Your Life, Unlimited on CJOB. His website, www.interesting.org, is the hub for his worldwide activities to help increase creativity in our world.
Fredrik says ideas are an improvement of life and that all ideas are a combination of other previously known ideas. He challenged us to sit down for 15 minutes and write down the 5 best ideas we’ve ever had. Think about where you were when those ideas came to you. It’s rare that they came to you in the boardroom. Most likely it was the bus or the bathroom or bar or maybe even in bed! Get yourself into a space, emotionally, intellectually and physically that allows those ideas to flow.
Fear and competency are creativity killers – so if you are ready to move from the status quo listen in to the whole show here:Your Life, Unlimited with Stephanie Staples and Fredrik Haren
