SUBSTITUTE

May 4, 2012 § Leave a comment

Can you substitute something? Can you substitute an idea, things, places, people, pieces, emotions or new ways of thinking.  Replace one thing over another until you find a new idea by trail and error.

Think about Richard Branson, he has substituted nearly every idea, he has challenged ideas, and ways to do things.

SO now it is your turn to substitute something – any thing even if it is just a limiting thought. Just substitute..try out some new way of looking at something. Try it today…I would love to hear what you come up with…

Wow…I wanted to share images on new art… but when I looked up new art under google images what I saw shocked me…It looked like death, decaying flesh, scaling skin, odd…..What do you see….I would love your perceptions of what the google images look like to you under a  new art google search.

Combining…A new creative thinking exercise for the weekend…

Combining is a bit like playing with Mr Potato head-you combine different facial features and add them to a plastic potato. You combine different foods to make a beautiful meal.  But what I want you to try is mixing things up a bit.  Try combining unusual things together and see what you get. Like mixing natural perfumes to get a beautiful smell out of odd combinations.  Who knows the world is your oyster. Tell me what you cam up with..

I just love Paul Smith. His twisted and humorous takes on the classics…So when I heard he was coming out with a second book due out in the states in June I hoped on it. Available on Amazon is where I found it.

Creative thinking game….

April 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

Okay lets play the game of Combining..

This is how you play.

FIrst pick an item…any old item.

Okay I picked a spoon….Now if We could combine it what would we combine it with? Okay you got 1 minute….

A bowl, a tray, a saucer, a cup, a fork, spagetti……Come n keep going you have one minture…come up with all the things you can combine it with in one minute….how can you multiply the purpose of the spoon? I know you can do it…Your goal is to come up with as many things as you can possibly combine a  spoon with….come on you can do it.

Okay what did you get?

if you scored over 6 items good, over 10 better….over 20 you are something!! Great work.

What is PMI? A list that Edward D Bono has come up with to help us get out of automatic. How often have you made an emotional decision just like I did a minute ago while purchasing about 6 design books…..without even thinking. Now, if I had used PMI, I might not have purchased the books so fast and furiously…So what is PMI?

Plus

Minus

Interesting.

You make up your question. List all of the pluses, then all of the minuses….then what interesting facts you have stumbled upon, or interesting observations you have had regarding the question.

PMI is great for slowing you down to look at a question critically. To stop you in your tracks so that you can get a better read on any situation…unlike me when I bought the 6 design books..As I write this I am now reminded to do PMI with every question and purchase I make. It will sure help me to examine what I am doing before I do it and possibly make a mistake. I would love to hear from you how you might use, or if you are using PMI, how you use it. PMI, a critcal thinking skill…..

Where Am I?
