Innovation Is A State Of Mind

You probably know the myth of innovation as a sudden flash of insight that comes from nowhere. We read about that "aha" moment, or that light bulb turning on in the mind of some inventor or innovator, and this is true to an extent. Einstein really did get flashes of insight while shaving in the morning. However, he was of course working on the particular problems he had insight into, and he didn't suddenly have ideas for new kitchen gadgets or movie plots.

A Wasteful Socialization

"This article was initiated while sitting in the library."

As a LLB student, translator, media liaison officer, freelance columnist for Search Newspaper (Cambodia) and expert author, librarying [the term I just coined, meaning doing research, thoroughly reading in the library] is my must and daily routine. From this librarying, time-wasting and unbeneficial-fatigued socialization committed by the university students have urged me to write this article: A Wasteful Socialization.

Innovation Goals and Original Ideas

Most people think that innovation is always free flowing and if you force the process you destroy creativity. In other words if you stress out over performance and deadlines you cannot remain creative. I completely disagree in that they also say that necessity is the Mother of Invention.

Few would disagree with that very profound statement which keeps getting repeated from politicians to academia; now there is something they can agree on? Now then consider a hardship, catastrophe or war

How to Innovate Faster than Anyone Else

Do you know how to innovate? Well it is not a secret really it merely takes a little out of the box thinking and therefore let me discuss a little theory and philosophy behind it.

A Creative Journey – Using a Magazine to Heighten Creativity and Learning

Read essays, articles, or books on creativity and you will more than once you will read that you can heighten your creativity and create new ideas by reading magazines that you wouldn't typically read. The suggestion is to go to your local newsstand and pick up magazines you wouldn't ever read and read them for ideas, connections and trends. This is an often repeated example of using outside stimulus as a way to jumpstart our creativity. I have read this suggestion many

Every Person is an Innovator

Humans are all somewhat capable of becoming great innovators. That is to say figuring out a way to do something once they intend to do it. Every person is born with this innovative spirit, sure some more than others, I am certain I got some innovator genes along the way. But even if you did not get an extra dose of innovator genes with a little work you can become a world-class innovator too.

We all agree that genetically speaking there is virtually no percentage difference between Sir

Inspiring Innovation and Creativity through Business Systems

Ok, I admit: "I am a big fan of systems, It's all about Systems." It could just be the Mechanical Engineer and Business Analyst coming out in me, but it goes much deeper than that. It is definitely grounded in my recent experiences with systems.

We are surrounded by systems, and our lives revolve around them and rely on them working infallibly. The cars (or motorbikes) we drive, the computers we use and the human bodies we live in, are all brilliantly refined and intricate systems that
