Meta Thinking

Innovation comes from connecting dots.

We need to get better at teaching how to think about thinking.

Create a shared brain to help take the right actions by recognising the right signals from establishing the optimum behaviours.

  1. Discipline to consume information
  2. Question the problem
  3. What can you establish as truths?
  4. Detach
  5. Capture connections to the subconscious to recieve new ideas

It is not what you think but how you think that matters most

Ways of Thinking

Escape dogma by exploring the matrices of your mind

Standard Linear

When someone thinks about point A, they go on to point B, then to point C, and so on.

Such as describing the recipe for making a sandwich.

You need to think about how each step leads to the next, keeping your ideas in a straight path while doing so.

Skip Thinking

When someone thinks in a straight line from point A to point C, they are known as skip thinkers.

Equivalent to jumping straight from the first to the last step of a math problem.

Not everyone thinks this way, yet it makes sense to some people they may vary approach depending on the situation.

Outside In

Work Backwards

Start from working through the dream flow if magic was possible.

Interrogate the final deliverables, then work backwards to identify the most valuable problem.
