When was the last time you shook things up? We like comfortable and contentment, which sometimes get us into a rut. I feel like I am in a bit of a rut so I am ready to shake things up, are you on board? Shaking things up does not have to be radical, it can simply mean doing things differently. How can you shake things up at work? What process can you do differently?
James Webb Young in his book A Technique for Producing Great Ideas says that:
- An idea is a new combination of old elements
- The capacity to combine old elements into something new is dependent on the ability to see relationships
Here is what I am going to do, it may be simple for some folks but right now I do not have a clue how to do it. I am going to convert a slideshow to a YouTube video and then embed it into a PowerPoint Presentation. I will let you know how it turns out. What are two or more old elements that you can combine to get something new? What are you going to do a bit differently? Or what are you going to do that is new to you? Let us keep the conversation going, please leave me a comment.
