L-Creativity: Top 10 Creative Rules of Thumb

Filed under: education — texased @ 2:53 pm
  1. The best way to get great ideas is to get lots of ideas and throw the bad ones away.
  2. Create ideas that are 15 minutes ahead of their time…not light years ahead.
  3. Always look for a second right answer.
  4. If at first you don’t succeed, take a break.
  5. Write down your ideas before you forget them.
  6. If everyone says you are wrong, you’re one step ahead. If everyone laughs at you, you’re two steps ahead.
  7. The answer to your problem “pre-exists.” You need to ask the right question to reveal the answer.
  8. When you ask a dumb question, you get a smart answer.
  9. Never solve a problem from its original perspective.
  10. Visualize your problem as solved before solving it.”
