“In a group, vary the environment. Break the routine. Brainstorm with people outside your industry. Outsiders will ask questions from an ‘unlocked’ and varying perspective.
Plus, listen to everyone – not matter the source. My son asked me just last week why there is no TiVo for radio!
Finally, I run – everyday. Without headphones. It frees my brain to drill deeper into questions or solutions. My most creative ideas have grown from the isolation.”
