Left Brain Right Brain

Friday, 16 November 2012   |   Creativity Challenges

Dual-N-BackThe way our mind works is quite interesting.  It's divided into two halves and those halves handle different things.  For instance the left brain deals with logic and details whilst the right brain deals with feelings and the big picture.  Our left brain controls the right side of our body and vice versa for our right brain.  Interestingly, this also occurs with our vision.  It is not split per eye but by things to the lef and right of us.  Our left brain processes things seen to the righ of us and vice versa for the right.  Here is a nice explanation.

A Better Wheel

Friday, 19 October 2012   |   Creativity Challenges

ChoiceThe basic design for a wheel on a bike has not changed in quite a while.  Essentially we have spokes that hold the hub in place.  Then we have a rubber tyre covering an innertube that contains air at pressure to provide shock absorption.  It is a simple construction but it is one for which I think we can do better.  As creative people, we should always be looking for opportunities like this.  Areas which are ripe for new ideas, creative ideas that can make the world a better place.  You're about to come up with the best thing since the invention on the wheel.

Creative Meditation

Friday, 28 September 2012   |   Creativity Challenges

ThinkingMeditation is great for reducing stress.  But it can also be great for creativity.  Meditation puts you into a very relaxed state.  Your mind slowed down.  The fast paced world around you put on hold for a bit.  Time for your conscious mind to pause for a while.  Time for your subconscious to play.  Exactly what we need for creative thinking.  People often think of meditation as something that takes hours of time and extreme self control but it doesn't have to be.  Let's check out a simple technique that is quite effective.

 

Global Tic Tac Toe

Friday, 21 September 2012   |   Creativity Challenges

Global Tic Tac ToeJoin us on a global game of Tic Tac Toe.  Ok, it's not really Tic Tac Toe but the aim is to get 3 in a row, and did we mention it's on a global scale?  We are fortunate to live in a world where we are provided with some phenomenal tools, and more imortantly, they are largely free.  I also believe we are only just scratching the surface of what we can do with them.  This challenge is just a bit of fun but remember, games are often inspiration for bigger things.  Let's dive in and get started.
