Conventional Is Too Conventional
This article has been moved to the Creativity Archives.
Anticonventional Thinking and Inner Mind Creativity
I have decided to incorporate aspects of inner-mind creativity (also known as cosmic creativity) into anticonventional thinking (ACT) in order to provide one, integrated and powerful approach to creative thinking.
This brings to ACT the power of meditation, a new model for visualising your own mind and new ways of discovering and using unexpected insights.
If you are a regular reader of Report 103, you will know that I have been working on a book on inner-mind creativity and have published chapters of that book here in Report 103 as well as in the Creativity Archives on jpb.com. These chapters will be edited and incorporated into a book on ACT to be published later this year.
I have been delighted to discover that a growing number of facilitators and trainers are using ACT in their workshops and ideation events -- and, apparently, with great success.
Benefit from ACT
ACT is a great way to:
- Build creative visions.
- Devise new product concepts.
- Revitalise existing products.
- Redefine value.
- Solve complex problems for which conventional solutions do not exist or do not work.
- Plan promotions, campaigns and other communications actions.
- Discover opportunities.
- See your business from the eyes of others.
