Edward Lewellen Your is most important on this list. In my mid-twenties is when I finally was able to answer this question for myself. After this, the other 3 steps you listed naturally fell into place. This is a great buzz.

Really love this post Edward Lewellen I love the importance of understanding when to ask the why and when to ask the how. Like Dr. Anani said it offers me new insights because why is the question I kept asking as well. And I'm already seeing how answering many questions. Thank you for this positive post :) Great Testimony as well. Keep changing lives and shine on :)

Brainstorming: Less Storm and More Brain

Brainstorming: Less Storm and More Brain

Many innovation drives are centered on the process of brainstorming. The technique was originally developed and propagated by Alex Osborn in 1953 in his book Applied Imagination. In essence brainstorming is where a group of people come together and...

Good post Gert Scholtz. I was lucky in my advertising career to have only ever had to get involved in a few of these things. Creative people are hired because they are self-contained brainstorming sessions. The most people I ever brainstormed with was one. My partner, and even then not always. The few that I did attend were exercises in futility, or designed to involve the client and keep them happy. Thank God there were goodies on the table. The best clients I ever had where the ones who always said these four words...."You're the creative expert".

Phil Friedman Thank you Phil. I take note of your insightful comment: The research cited overlooks a critical component of successful "brainstorming" sessions: There must be a moderator who takes the ideas mentioned and makes them his or her own pro tem. He or she then pushes the "envelope" with those ideas, calling for more and more outrageous support and accepts the open criticism as a lightning rod invites lightning strikes. It is only when a solution or solutions emerge from the freewheeling discussion and are brought to some level of maturity that the moderator returns ownership of them to their originators. This is the only way to work around the natural inhibitions present in group effort.

Gert Scholtz High Five and hurray. We are super happy to have thoroughly enjoyed and are each time nourished with your posts. Your posts are a breath of fresh air and most of the amazing writers you've mentioned above, kindle learning filled with curiosity or humour and unparalleled knowledge through their writing. I've learnt so much from each one of you and I don't know if thank you would suffice, as like yourself I celebrated my second anniversary this month joining bebee April 2016. Published my first immature blog on the 18th April 2016. I've come a long way and I guess we have miles to go before we sleep :) I echo your words on writing, "I write for myself first. To clarify my thoughts or distill my knowledge on a topic and more importantly to learn from the experience and interactions" It's a pleasant journey so far and looking forward to many many more years of interacting with each one of you. Hope to visit South Africa and see some of my favorite bees in the near future :)

Dave Worthen - it's all too easy to get discouraged by other people - especially when you are young! I once got told in my late teens that with my writing and poetry I strived too hard for impact and laid my pen down for years! Great post!
