Creativity First, Innovation Will Follow

Dear Reader,

I found this eye-opener of a post on my LinkedIn feed, and I thought you’d like to know : The Rule to Mastering Anything.

The Office Blend

I am officially obsessing about creativity.

This has everything to do with all of the interest in innovation.

Discussions about innovation seem to be everywhere — yet, we don’t to fully understanding how to cultivate it. Yes, innovation is a critical concept in today’s workplaces. However, I can’t help but think that we might be putting the cart before the horse. Which leads me to one crux of the innovation dilemma. When it comes to innovation — don’t we need creativity to be there first to pave the road?

Where creativity is concerned it is wise to learn from the masters. I’ve just listened to HBR’s interview with Ed Catmull, President of Pixar Animation Studios. Undeniably, the folks at Pixar seem to have a handle on the creativity realm, and the innovative results which follow. Catmull explains that the dynamic they have built at his studio isn’t perfect. However, the…

Not Just Empty Words

Hi!

This is an answer to the Question of the Day post here. Without any further ado, viola, the question.

What sentences (about anything) have stopped you in your tracks and changed your life?

“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.”

Elizabeth Bennet, Pride and Prejudice

“The true voyage of discovery consists not of going to new places, but of having a new pair of eyes.”

“”This is for you,” he said, holding one of the parts out to the monk. “It’s for your generosity to the pilgrims.”
“But, this payment goes well beyond my generosity,” the monk responded.
“Don’t say that again. Life might be listening, and give you less the next time.””

The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

There was also the title of an article : “How Perfectionists Can Get Out of Their Own Way”.

 

How would you  answer the question? Post on the comments or on your own blog and let’s give people things to think about.

Love,

Priya

 

Judge Me by My Playlist

Hi y’all!

(Yeah, Chandler Bing moving to Tulsa is rubbing off on me [The One with Rachel’s Other Sister Season 9 Episode 8])

So, I bring to you this post about ten songs which appeared on the Rhythmbox Music Player (I use Ubuntu) via the Shuffle setting. It is inspired by my friend’s post.

Printed Pages and “What do they do to me, man, hypnotism?”

Hi Readers!

I am back with a new short post (which, again, I started writing three days ago, but, the margin’s closer than the previous post‘s).

This one is a celebration of sorts.

😀

I just finished reading my 100th book since I discovered Goodreads!

Celebrating Unproductivity

Hi Reader!

Happy weekend to all of you out there! It’s Saturday morning and I am very much awake already (surprise!).

I wanted to celebrate the spectacular failure of my W-Log posts today. It seems like none of my task-logging mechanisms work. This is getting insane. I don’t seem to follow my diet and/or workout plans either. And I wanted to enjoy the undisciplined whim my soul has taken upon itself.

Kattappa’s Defence

Hi everyone!

I’ve been working on my novels, as promised. So, I hadn’t much time or content to write because I’d also simultaneously working on my next book idea (which is very damaging to the current book, if you ask me). So really, I hadn’t much to report except hush-hush information for which blogging about would be the bad option. But, I recently found a post so remarkably stupid, that I had to land here and defend what is probably my most favourite movie saga ever, the Bāhubali Saga.
