The way to have good ideas is to get close to killing yourself.

The Ultimate Guide for Becoming an Idea Machine

It’s like weightlifting. When you lift slightly more than you can handle, you get stronger. In life, when the gun is to your head, you either figure it out, or you die. When you cut yourself open, you bleed ideas. If you’re broke and close to death, you have to start coming up with ideas. If you destroy your life, you need to come up with ideas to rebuild it. The only time I’ve been FORCED to have good ideas is when I was up against the wall. At an airport when I realized a business I had been working on for four years was worthless.

Or when I was sitting in the dark at three in the morning in the living room of the house I was going bankrupt and losing my home, my brain figuring out how to die without anyone knowing it was planned. Développer sa créativité grace aux neurosciences. Développer sa créativité.

Many experts argue that creative thinking requires people to challenge their preconceptions and assumptions about the way the world works.

A Cognitive Trick for Solving Problems Creatively

One common claim, for example, is that the mental shortcuts we all rely on to solve problems get in the way of creative thinking. How can you innovate if your thinking is anchored in past experience? But I’m not sure that questioning biases from your past experience and assumptions is the best path to creative problem solving — it simply does not seem to fit well with how the mind actually works. The role of thinking processes in decision making was made prominent by Daniel Kahneman and the late Amos Tversky, whose Nobel Prize–winning research argues that economic decision makers are subject to deeply held cognitive biases. Anchoring, in which people address new problems by applying decisions they have made on similar problems in the past, explains the irrationality of much economic decision making.

Appreciative inquiry

It was developed at Case Western Reserve University's department of organizational behavior, starting with a 1987 article by David Cooperrider and Suresh Srivastva. They felt that the overuse of "problem solving" as a model often held back analysis and understanding, focusing on problems and limiting discussion of new organizational models.[1] History[edit] Cooperrider and Srivastva took a social constructionist approach, arguing that organizations are created, maintained and changed by conversations, and claiming that methods of organizing were only limited by people's imaginations and the agreements among them.[2] In 1990, Cooperrider and Diana Whitney published an article outlining the five principles of AI.[3] On May 8, 2010, Suresh Srivastva died.[6] Basis and principles[edit] AI's uses[edit]
