Are you up for a challenge? Josh Linkner in a recent Fast Company blog post, “The 5% Creativity Challenge”, challenges each of us to schedule two one-hour thinking sessions each week. Linkner is the author of Disciplined Dreaming - A Proven System to Drive Breakthrough Creativity and CEO and Managing Partner of Detroit Venture Partners.
He suggests getting away from your desk to a place of inspiration. Turn off your phone. Show up, treating this time as your most important meeting of the day. Let your imagination soar. Linkner says that those who try this approach see no drop in personal productivity and get a personal flood of new ideas and fresh thinking.
So, give it a real try. Two hours, unplugged, in a place where you can explore.
Let me know the results. . . . jim
