14 Ways

A new ChangeThis Manifesto: 14 Ways to Get Breakthrough Ideas. "...It begins with the awareness of where ideas come from in the first place."

14. Suspend Logic
Perhaps einstein said it best when he declared “not everything that can be counted counts; and not everything that counts can be counted.” He was referring, of course, to the part of the human being that knows intuitively, the part that is tuned in, connected, and innately creative.
kids live in this place. the rest of us just visit, preferring the left-brained world of rationality, logic, linearity, and analysis. on some primal level, we’re all from missouri. we need proof. and while there is nothing inherently wrong with gathering data, the addiction to it subverts our ability to originate breakthrough ideas.
