CREATIVE THINKING

HAVING A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE IN AN AI WORLD

THE CREATIVE THINKING-CRITICAL THINKING CONUNDRUM:

  • Critical Thinking is usually defined as a logical, sequential approach to analyzing something
  • In 2020, with programs such as Deep Mind, Formal Critical Thinking can be coded, and applied by an AI.  Examples include Facebook’s new ‘quality control’ bots [patrolling the site to evaluate and remove fake news, spam, etc.]
  • Creative Thinking can be defined as looking at things-situations from a different perspective
  • Creative Thinking emphasized intuition and leaps between apparently unrelated items.  For the near future, Creative Thinking is not feasible to code, so is AI proof.

 

CREATIVE THINKING PROCESS:

FIRST, you need to create a comfort zone with minimal distractions [use what you are most comfortable with], THEN:

Do a Meditation session to remove you from immediate distractions, THEN:

Place an object in your view, examine it in detail, THEN:

Develop a story-scenario involving that object

Take approximately 5 minutes to build the story-scenario

Go into as much detail and make it as complete as possible

CREATIVE THINKING EXERCISE 1:

1) Go to YouTube and load up https://youtu.be/sAUpfYsrSb4?t=2 [Professor Einstein] but don’t watch it yet.

2) Get comfortable and go into meditation mode, meditate for 1 minute or so

3) now run the YouTube ‘Professor Einstein’ video

4) Take 2-3 minutes and build a story-scenario involving the Professor Einstein robot—it can be anything you come up with

4a) Make it as detailed as possible

  • Just as a note, if interested you can see one of the Einstein’s in my office

FREQUENCY–HOW OFTEN?

Creative Thinking requires exercise and practice.  You want to get to the point that you can trigger it on demand.  You want to make it intentional.

Do this exercise above several times a day.

Practice by observing people and situations around you and building them into scenarios in your mind.

Note—Being stuck in a queue is a great place to practice this technique.
