Who will save Creativity?


Listen


SaveCreativity
Creativity is expected to save us, but who will save creativity,
when so few are willing to give it a go?
We take too much for granted, when the fact is that
we can change more than we imagine.

The value of creativity is indeed in the eye of the beholder and under the microscope, provided they can appreciate and adopt a perspective in tune with a better reality. Open to evaluate and consider the unknown beyond any conception of today's reality.
Confabulation must be widespread when so many are caught in a distorted reality. Poor assumptions, unreasonable expectations and blind understandings of profits, systems, processes, and decisions tend to lead to significant loss of value. This can inhibit and cloud judgements and the initial purpose or cause, e.g. caught endlessly fundraising without real results or the prospect to change.
To give a new idea a go, the value proposition must be realised with a better appreciation of the challenges involved. It helps to understand the vision and how it is likely to evolve, overcome barriers and bridge differences. The many systems fixated on more ideas need better implementation strategies to overcome the critical challenges with sustainable solutions that everyone may appreciate and benefit.
In the age of convenience the quest for instant gratification comes at a price, when creativity is lost or forsaken with many values and principals. A flexible adaptive mindset is needed for a broader perspective to imagine what is not only possible, but the drive, support and energy to make it happen.
Consider the measures discussed further in this article to turn risk into opportunity, find value in new ideas and how to engage and proceed with so many innovations in synch:

  • Overcome unconscious biases
  • Adjust expectations
  • Restore hope and trust.
  • Results build momentum
  • Bridge the unknown

CanDo
A can do attitude helps overcome many reservations to creatively
transform and manage any challenge. Viva la revolution!

Grooming ourselves to reach the desired goals needs more than conventional education, vocational development and key skills allows.
Everyone can help raise the standards to predict and thrive for what the future demands. Develop that insight, vision, and sense of urgency to make it happen rather rely on false expectations. Don't fall into traps with 5, 10 or extended plans with poor results, based on misguided assumptions.
Why accept a comfort zone that inhibits our true potential?
Instead live life to its fullest and explore, engage and achieve to learn more and grow.
Everyone tends to undervalue themselves, their potential capabilities or their drive. Don't wait for opportunities or tomorrow, instead learn to recognise and create them. Revolutionise those antiquated systems and improve the quality of life with each challenge; an enduring quality.
Decide now to embrace that potential instead of the usual age of convenience traps that makes us all victim to society's ill-conceived systems. Valuable strategies to bridge any gap tend to shift the wasted energy dedicated to fears, self-imposed inhibitions, drive and doubts. Consider the following sections of this article as the initial guide:

  • Get the bigger picture
  • Lift those analytical skills
  • Creative steps to a broader vision
  • Set the plan into action with immediate results

Business rules!


Listen


BusinessRules
Tradition is still more comfortable than the truth as
Business continues to dictate our beliefs and direction.

Businesses continue the struggle of Principals above personal gain.
Yet, many businesses that forged their place on the mantle of Giants have played a part to distort humanities grasp of reality.
The age of comfort was born from the ignorance of products that we do not need to a legacy of many of today's chronic conditions.
We should know better now, in the information age. Instead addictions, deceptions, illusions, false hype, distorted values and obscure beliefs prevail. It's probably all part of popular dominant marketing tactics and unnecessary risks. Simply, those that cheat only cheat themselves.
Modern Businesses that want to change these traditions to respect enlightened consumers, can offer a vision, transparency, real value, and the capability to deliver as promised. This can be a more sustainable model that shares the challenges and the rewards to shape a future we can all appreciate. To free humanity from the rat race chaos and restore a better grasp of reality, purpose and direction.
To curve this trend, consider some thoughts pertinent to these challenges, so hope and trust can be restored. This can build a network of collaboration between likeminded individuals and organisations, as discussed in the following sections of this article:

  • Awaken the competitive mentality
  • Recognise and appreciate strategies
  • Shared legacy
  • Sustainability

Build bridges


Listen


BridgeGaps
To build and cross cultural bridges takes the
courage, wisdom and strength of our convictions.
Miracles are not only possible, but well deserved
with a little faith, drive, and understanding.

There is so much that divides us, when it could be so easy to bridge those gaps with a little wisdom, foresight and creativity that goes a long way to each miracle. "Magic may be easy, but miracles take time".
The norm maybe the level of distrust in Business to Business relations, combative, siloed or the unrest with Government standards, signs of corruption and key challenges degrading our societies. No doubt, there are not enough people willing to take the risk with the desperately needed steps to build cultural bridges that can solve most issues.
Everyone wants solutions, but it's easier to remain impartial and let things stand or hope that someone is willing to do what's needed.
To consider the risk or be willing to give it a go starts an adventure that can close many gaps. It builds respect, kills segregation and merges the best of all worlds. The benefits greatly outweigh the risks, reciprocated with each commitment.
Why remain cautious, risk adverse or in siloes when an enormous potential could be unleashed in our networks with a few easy steps as discussed further within the following sections of this article:

  • Appreciate the potential benefits
  • Navigate the barriers, stigmas and challenges
  • Do it better with power
  • Adapt to the new realities

Eureka!


Listen


Eureka
When was our last Eureka moment?
When nothing is ventured, nothing is gained
in so many dimensions!

Some of the best ideas and strategies are conceived during those
Eureka moments, when everything makes sense. A perfect fit to lots of hard work, or an overwhelming challenge that ends with a flash of insight. An experience no one should miss, or be deprived.
Many such insights are already evident, but remain dormant when old practices and ideas are still mistaken as the best, or too heavily invested to consider a change. It's never too late to consider an awakening to more Eureka moments that leads to a transformation with life, business, and industry altering ideas.
Everyone should experience a Eureka moment as they deserve their miracle. The challenge might be to respect our own instincts or the prospect to develop wisdom beyond our own imagination. Trust, also comes hard, when caught in a world of routine and conditioned to ignore the possibilities and how to achieve better prospects.
Today's limitations still dictate to most, while few strive to pioneer ahead with one Eureka moment after another.
Why not make that most experiencing valuable insight with a mind-set that makes it possible?
Take the critical steps, as discussed further in this article to experience a life changing Eureka moment :

  • The awakening
  • Super intelligence
  • Divergent thinking
  • From Big to MASSIVE
  • Eureka's next generation

More reasons to collaborate


Listen


Coll

Collaboration brings the world closer
to make significant progress in every space.
It raises our creative IQ, harnesses unfathomed powers,
closes the gaps to the unknown,
addresses challenges in the status quo and realises disruptive prospects.
To achieve something incredible, it starts by considering
the prospects to collaborate!

To survive the most difficult challenges still needs an edge that is made possible with the right type of collaboration. Even the most mundane challenges can do with a little help to break bad cycles, discover new prospects and overcome any barrier. This is also an opportunity to explore beyond the superficial.
The benefits and opportunities to collaborate are restricted by our own imaginations. Broader visions, added security, support, shared risks, extended capabilities and trust that only raises our potential to do the extraordinary. The inspiration to build momentum also adds value.
Beyond the obvious benefits that are typical in any joint effort, mergers, partnerships, marriages or team dynamics there are added synergies with each unique challenge and journey. To leverage on combined strengths, share insights and resources creates more opportunities.
Too much is left to poor assumptions. My initial comment would be " you are doing it wrong, making life harder for yourself and getting little for the effort, e.g. Brainstorming for mediocre ideas. "
Consider how some added benefits can be instigated and harnessed with a little imagination and effort as discussed further in this article:

  • Genuine Relationships
  • Levels of Trust
  • Real value
  • Ground rules
  • Win-win
  • Cultivate creative alliances

Run with it!


Listen


R2I

Why not transform a good idea to a brilliant one and run with it?
Dare to surprise everyone and exceed all expectations!

Don't let patents sit idle, shelf ideas, or waist any potential to consider how it can be converted to a brilliant idea with the thrust to run with it.
The blue ocean strategy picked a space that was not saturated with competition, positioned to stand alone and make the competition redundant. Why not take it further with your own Space, or a vibrant space with room to expand, ready and waiting for a touch of brilliance.
Brilliant ideas can be born
from the creativity that designs better strategies and leverages on our best kept secrets. Reinvigorate the old, or do something different. Sprout genuine value with the recipe to inspire a convincing pitch and commitment.
We know all the secrets, hidden strategies and tactics most CEO's deploy on the cutting edge. Some play with risks or let others take the risk. They are always vigilant of higher market prospects, potential turbulence and the competition to adapt as needed. There are always frontiers to pioneer the unknown for the brave and skilled.
Some of these secrets can make a difference to reduce each challenge in this pursuit, which is discussed further in this article:

  • Everything is not what it seems
  • Talent and Capabilities
  • Emotions
  • Knowledge
  • Rules
  • Principles and Responsibilities

Reinvention


Listen


RI

Post any awakening, post mortem, post analysis
can set the incentive for the next transformation.
So what makes our next reinvention a success
when
Business models can cave
more rapidly to the pace of change?

When beliefs are shaken to its core it’s time to consider a transformation that is more likely to succeed, mitigate any unforseen risk and become more robust and sustainable in the process.
Like most transformations, unless the key issues are resolved it might become another band aid solution, if not another smokescreen that masks more serious risks. Innovations may not be enough when the world innovates further ahead and builds more capabilities.
Does the current business model fit the inevitable future?
When the current thinking that Business models will last 3 to 5 years becomes out dated and even the biggest organisations can fold within a year, it's time to rethink and reinvent the business again.
Like the banks that think they are invincible with the best and fastest computers; that may not be enough, if they cannot adapt fast enough to change. Welcome to the fickle world that may blindside many industries. Start-ups should hold their ground, not to be bought up by the big organisations, when their ideas could make a difference. Let's face it, when the business is part of the problem change in never enough.
Consider the thoughts and concepts that can help the next reinvention of your business, as discussed further in this article:

  • Enhanced awareness
  • Broaden horizons and pace
  • Jugaad
  • Adventurous
  • Reimagine what's possible

Rethink reality!


Listen


BR

We don't have to imagine the worst to find a significant contrast to reality.
Western logic, dialectical reasoning and the confines of global isolation impose their own
limitations to influence our decision making and development prospects.
Let's expand our minds eye and take a quantum leap into reality!

In an age when we have the most knowledge, scientist, engineers and technologies at our grasp, it's a wonder why progress is stifled.
With endless claims from studies in health, wealth and education, if reputations were held accountable, this practice might change. Real progress continues to take a back seat to these claims. It is probably more hype to attract funding, interest or prospective clients. Most surveys are not interested in change, when they only support their own conclusions and products. Complacency only breeds contempt and more illusions. This is when assumptions have drastic consequences.
Our unconscious biases have become a vital tool for politicians and businesses as more data is sought to exploit by manipulating reality.
How susceptible are we to social influence?
Unfortunately, this deception extends into many fundamental beliefs that influence our decisions on a daily basis. Succumbing to what's convenient probably nourishes more unconscious biases that restrict and diminish our abilities to analyse effectively, and hamper our potential to develop. Where are all the independent assessments?
Consider how to find reality and build better habits while aligning our thoughts with the concepts discussed in the rest of this article:

  • False assumptions {Face the harsh reality}
  • Conclusions
  • Challenges
  • Drive
  • Mental agility
