Divergent thinking

“Divergent thinking is the centre of human creativity”

Spend 70% of your time on core/foundational activities, 20% on improvement and 10% on innovation.  Innovation comes from “divergent thinking”. 

So what exactly is that?  

It’s looking at things in a slightly different way – and then coming up with a solution that sets you apart from others.

See it in action:  In art school, Phil Hansen developed an unruly tremor in his hand that kept him from creating the pointillist drawings he loved. Hansen was devastated, floating without a sense of purpose. Until a neurologist made a simple suggestion: embrace this limitation … and transcend it.

Taking a cue from his own artistic journey, Phil Hansen challenges us to spark our creativity by thinking inside the box.
