Evolutionary Innovation

The human body is an amazing machine. If you consider only the bottom line knowing nothing about the process that got us to this point, you would probably say its design is innovative. And yet, we all know we are the result of millions of years of evolution — a long and tedious process with ups and downs. Sure, there were some breakthroughs along the way, but they are just minor events compared to the infinite number of nature‘s trials and errors.

Open Space

Are you working in an open space? No, I don’t mean the physical cubicles. Are you working in an open environment? Do you have the space to be creative, to take risks, and to fail?

The Creative Butterfly Effect

One of the coolest things about the creative “process” is its randomness. Regardless of the many attempts to capture creativity as a process, I find it more effective to think of it as quite a random mess.

To Infinity and Beyond

Until a few years ago, whenever I’ve heard a statement like “anything is possible,” or “the sky is the limit,” or something along these lines, I felt uncomfortable. Of course, many things are possible. Of course, theoretically, the sky is the limit. But what does that have to do with the concrete problem I should solve now, with these specific constraints which block so many theoretically possible solutions? How can someone seriously claim the sky is the limit when my problem seems to be closed in a few square meters with a concrete ceiling just above head level? Such statements seemed to me mocking, condescending, or just naive. But of course, it all comes down to how you interpret such statements and, more importantly, what you are going to do with them. Here are three aspects in which adopting such “an infinity mindset” is not only far from being naive – it could even help us find a creative solution.
