..just a thought

... while I was skiing with my family on the sunny slopes of Italian Dolomites, a thought occurred to me: “Innovation is really just one of the physical manifestations of creativity, design could be another, and more…”... therefore, in order to ensure an innovative society (which is probably just a transition stage towards a »self sustained« one), we need to systematically tackle the creativity issue... in schools and kinder gardens first, than at work, and in everyday social life, as well... since the acknowledgment of creativity is directly related to our respect towards human being and nature overall, the innovation society could be a larger challenge that it appeared at the beginning .... as I said, just a thought, but definitely worth exploring further...at least for me...

As Hamlet said »…ay, there’s the rub!…”
I think we must start to change mental models. It is the easiest in kinder garden, schools and not so easy later. We all have creative power, we just have to overcome inhibitors. However I believe that it is not enough to unleash creative power, we have to develop new models, we have to be organized in a way that will enable that unleashed creative power to materialize. How to do it with obsolete mental models??? I believe that we have to start with ourselves. I believe that few individuals must play Don Kihote role and start to network, to be connected, to work on issue and when enough energy is gathered, it will burst. The rest will follow…..So let start Don Kihotes !!!!!

your comments are leading straight to the point… creativity is just a powerful source of vital forces… however, it has to be unleashed by new models (mental, business, social)… let’s start the journey…V.
