Editor's Notes

  1. Dove evolution
  2. Dove evolution
  3. Creativity = “Divergent thinking” (Joy Paul Guilford)
  4. Elaboration - The ability to iron out the details and make a reality
  5. Image by Mercedes Benz Is the right brain vs. left brain a myth? Yes! So what does have an effect…?
  6. Individuals vs. groups It is good to think of ideas by yourself – individual for breadth, group for depth.
  7. A new study published in Psychological Science (August 2013) suggests that a messy desk is good thing to have at the beginning of a project – encourages createive thinking However, a tidy desk is better for elaborating a project and bringing it home to completion in an organised way
  8. Richard Wiseman: embrace nature by putting a potted plant on your desk. (Check 59 seconds) Ruth Ann Atchly, professor at University of Kansas said that a team of backpackers were 50% more creative after spending time on the trail
  9. Best time of day to create Lifehacker says that the creative mind gets up early: Cindi May says that your ‘non-peak’ time is the best time for creating
  10. Info we trust …actually, whatever rocks your socks.
  11. Professor Lorenza Colzato of Leiden University discovered that people who exercised regulary (more than 4x a week) were better at divergent and convergent thinking. For those who aren’t gym bunnies, this could just mean taking a brisk walk at lunch or incorporating exercise into your commute (e.g. cycling to work)
  12. Getting things done – writing things down allows to you come up with more ideas Writing, not typing, boosts memory Some fun writing games – pick a word, any word Dump everything you know about the company onto one sheet and make weird connections
