...you need to radically change your surroundings.
Have you ever felt that once you set your mind to a problem or once you ask yourself a question, you start coming across all kinds of stuff related to that?
That's what happened yesterday. Before I got to putting together a list of books that I want to read before I start my challenge, I found this interesting video on one of my favorite online resources, the Harvard Business Review website.
Any ways you choose to look at it, it makes sense. Creativity leads to innovation, but sometimes, oh what the hell....most times, you need a (really good) push to go beyond what you know and beyond already established patterns to bring about something completely different.
And for that, you do need a challenge... :)
P.S. - Be sure to check out the video (click on the link, it's not available for embedding), I have at least 10 times already ;)
