    It s true All kids are creative, but we are very specific about which adults we label as creative It got me thinking and I realized there s hardly any escaping As a child, you re told to go, and have fun , you re encouraged to explore, to fail, to get better, to try again, and again and again The bumps and bruises aren t a bad thing, they re your badge of honour you ve tried, you ve persevered And then you hit a certain adult age and you re told to be careful, to study work hard and to do your best Notice the difference In a way, this book is about that difference If you want to be creative, you have to play and experiment It should not feel like Work , like something you have to succeed at Instead, give yourself the permission to fail A widely held myth suggests that creative geniuses rarely fail Yet, the opposite is actually true Creative geniuses are quite prolific when it comes to failure they just don t let that stop them Research has found that creative people simply do experiments Creativity isn t only for those who aspire to be featured in a Taschen bo...

    A bit of a disappointment, as much because of my expectations as the book itself I was hoping unleashing the creative potential within all of us would have a lot application to education than business but it was rather relentlessly corporate in its viewpoint So in that respect it has a lot of case studies where this CEO and that company employee prove that thinking outside of the rhombus pays off.Much of the material is familiar Be open minded Be willing to take chances Carry paper for ideas Do not fear failure, embrace it I find it too fat to get my arms around Doodle Use whiteboards Use blackboards Use Sticky Notes especially Work alone Work together Play Do not dismiss out of hand any idea.It wasn t until I got to a lonely back of the book chapter, Move Creative Confidence To Go, that my buck was walking the 29 walk Here the Kelley Bros offer concrete activities sort of what I hoped the whole ...

    I liked this book How could I not, it s exactly my kind of thing design, education, problem solving, creativity That sums up some of my favorite topics pretty neatly I am between rating the book a 3 and a 4, because it was indeed inspiring and thought provokingbut I just have a particular idea of how perfect the book SHOULD be, and it isn t quite.To give props where they are due there are lots of great stories in this book IDEO success stories, D School success stories, IDEO influenced success stories, D School inspired success stories, andrepeat I mean, it s cool The stories are cool They are just very Let s talk about how awesome we are Indeed, they are awesome There are few things I wouldn t do to be part of IDEO, or to take classes at the D School Buuut, no matter how fantastic they are, I get pretty tired of people talking about themselves.The Kelleys revealed at the end of the book that the way they outlined the book was using a hub and spoke mindweb and when they said it, I just thought Ohhhh Cause really, that s how the book felt Here is a core idea build a strong team Now here are 5 stories or examples that vaguely demonstrate the importance of teams, and are oth...

    Creative confidence is the difference between daily office spine bender and big league creative inventors that is thesis of this simple, structured book No unexpected findings, a few stories and a handful of excersises, it does exactly what it says on the cover Good as a reminder of important points, quite average as a fresh outlook generator.A few random takeaways When teaching creativity, Tina Seelig asks her students to write Failure resume that highlights their biggest fuck ups and fails Much useful and thought provoking than boasting about successes When looking for creative spark get into traveller mode , gazing upon the known with first timer s eyes Five whys is a method to get to the bottom of things when searching for an insight Ask why after every answer For five rounds A Nobel laureate Linus Pauling said If you want a good idea, start with lots of ideas Keep a constantly updated bug list The things that bug you are likely to spark an idea how to solve them FF ...

    A book is good when it is well written and offers insight But a book is amazing when it can actually make a difference to your life, to who you are as an individual I would put this book in the latter category I picked it up to get some background on a design thinking role I was hoping to apply for Amidst these job applications, it s easy for anyone to feel jaded I was in fact quite morose and skeptical of the value my higher education has created in my life But the I read this book, the excited I felt about finding opportunities around me The Kelley brothers write very simplistically and this is a quick read They discuss many examples of the difference that design thinking has made to people s lives One thing that stuck with me was the curse of competence that they mention It is the idea that when you are academically smart, the excessive pragmatism of external influences pushes you in the generic directions most people take in life For instance, if you re good at sciences then you should go into engineering or medicine But ever so often your heart will not be in it Essentially, failure is not only good but a necessary stepping stone to success This book has helped me in deriving a sense of comfort from failure so that I ll be less afraid to try new things Historically, all innovators experienced multiple failures till they...

    I loved this book Although, in full disclosure, perhaps it was the context in which I read it First, I am embarking on a year of self discovery action i.e rather than always thinking I wish I could or I would like to , I m acting on those things Second, I m currently engrossed in a year long leadership development program for work in which innovation is at the core Nonetheless, this is a fantastic primer on the concept of design thinking and nurturing your creative self Everyone is creative or, perhaps I should say, everyone is still creative since, as the authors note, most children are considered inherently creative It is only as we go through life and gain a few battle scars read judgment criticism etc that suddenly the concept of creativity becomes something that we begin to believe is inherent genetic rather than somethi...
