Generate Ideas, Think Differently

July 12, 2012 by Bruce Jones, Senior Programming Director, Disney Institute

Ideas are fleeting, passive and sometimes downright hidden. Just as important as the idea may be the process by which it is discovered. The energetic and enthusiastic Jason Silva, a TED talk staple and self-proclaimed “performance philosopher” has several ways he suggests to get your creative juices flowing:

Tell a Story: A good story captivates an audience and allows them to think differently about what was perhaps an otherwise familiar topic. Ideas can do the same. Challenge yourself to express your idea as a narrative. Expand it, be mindful of its presentation and be passionate about it.

    I completely agree! And thanks, really, for the reminder. I used to take a new road every week and it was exhilarating. Another thing I enjoy is to simply take a few minutes to walk around a craft store or DIY store - LOTS of multi-sensory inspiration there. And other times all it takes is just slowing down and enjoying a sunset from a swing. Thanks again for this post!
