I am an idea person. I know this and I'm told this often. But, here's the really good news.
YOU are also an idea person.
I've always thought and taught that the process of generating ideas is available to anyone who is willing to practice a little curiosity and observation—to anyone who is drawn to novelty and allows moments of mindlessness along with their mindfulness.
If you're reluctant to believe me then I hope you'll watch this TEDx Talk by Laurie Smithwick ...
I LOVE that Laurie challenges and resists the long held and iconic symbol of a light bulb as an effective representation of ideas and (wait for it) suggests and promotes as a better option, the kaleidoscope.
Have a listen and tell me what YOU hear.
