Dedicated to “Thinking-Out-of-The-Box” Spirit Of Team RFCL

Slide 2: 

THINK Outside the Box!

Slide 3: 

There is ONE THING that distinguishes human beings from the so-called “lower animal forms.” No, not skateboarding. Not stock options. Not the invention of the disco ball.

Slide 4: 


Slide 5: 

Like the opposable thumb, it comes with the territory of being human.

Slide 6: 

Think about it. We’re thinking almost all the time. In the shower. On our feet. In our dreams. Even at the office. But just because we think, it doesn’t mean we’re coming up with anything very extraordinary. For that, something else is required.

Slide 7: 

Creative Thinking

Slide 8: 

It’s what Einstein did. It’s what Picasso did. And it’s what YOU do… That is, when you are “out of the box.”

Slide 9: 

Ah! The box! THE BOX! That much talked about, habit-forming, mind-crunching, option-limiting, six-sided, culturally repressive thing that keeps the genius within you imprisoned.

Slide 10: 

Why all this fuss about a box? Boxes aren’t bad. Are they? Chocolates come in boxes. So do birthday gifts. And Scrabble. And diamond rings.

Slide 11: 

Boxes protect. Boxes contain. Boxes convey.

Slide 12: 

True… But they also confine, constrain, separate, and limit. (Especially when what’s contained within them doesn’t want to be there.)

Slide 13: 

Think cubicle. Think prison cell. Think coffin. Think the closed mind of the person at work who is almost always shut down to your new ideas

Slide 14: 

Which leads us to the inevitable, existential, frequently asked QUESTION – (one you will need to answer if you ever expect to get out.) What is this so-called “box” actually made of?

Slide 15: 

Opinions, vary of course. But it is made of something. And so, to get the conversation rolling, we’ll suggest 6 things we think it is made of – four for the sides and one each for the top and bottom.) (If you don’t agree, you’ll get your chance to name the sides in a moment.)

Slide 16: 

Ready for the first time deconstruction of the mythical box? (The mythical box)

Slide 17: 

Limiting Assumptions • False conclusions • Questionable hypotheses • Misinterpretation of data • Artificial lines drawn in the sand “640 K ought to be enough for anyone.” – Bill Gates #1

Slide 18: 

Addiction to the Status Quo • Fear of change • Conventionality • Playing it safe • Defaulting to “the way it’s always been.” #2 “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got.”

Slide 19: 

Hyper-Rationality • Over-dependence on the left brain • Analysis paralysis • Excessive use of logic and linearity • Premature evaluation #3 “Not everything that counts can be counted; and not everything that can be counted counts.” - Albert Einstein

Slide 20: 

Tunnel Vision • Narrow mindedness • Inability to see new connections • Mental isolationism • Silo-itis #4 “Discovery consists of looking at the same thing as everyone else and seeing something different.” – Albert Szent Gyorgi

Slide 21: 

Intolerance for Ambiguity • Settling for the first ‘right’ idea • Excessive need for certainty • Impatience with “process” • Discomfort with transition and chaos #5 “Now that we have met with paradox, we have some hope of making progress.” – Niels Bohr

Slide 22: 

No Intrinsic Motivation • Out of touch with your own fascination • Lack of inspiration • Inertia and lethargy • Good soldier-itus #6 “I will act as if what I do will make a difference.” – William James

Slide 23: 

Oh, by the way, Bell Labs did a study some time back in order to find out why some of their research scientists were “creative” and others weren’t. After six months of intensive data collection, interviewing, and interpretation do you know what they discovered? The scientists who thought they were creative were creative. The scientists who thought they weren’t creative, weren’t creative. A total self-fulfilling prophecy.

Slide 24: 

OK. Now you know the names of the six sides of the box. But maybe you see them differently. If you do, how would you name them?

Slide 25: 

Of course, no matter how you describe the box, the challenge remains: getting out.

Slide 26: 

And so, to get you going, choose the one side that bugs you the most and commit to one thing you will do to go beyond it. 1. Limiting assumptions 2. Addiction to the status quo 3. Hyper-rationality 4. Tunnel vision 5. Intolerance for ambiguity 6. No intrinsic motivation To make this even more real, apply your “out of the box” insight to your hottest, new project.

Slide 27: 

Next, take a cue from the following six creative thinkers who, by hook or by crook, succeeded in finding their way out of the box.

Slide 28: 

“Intuition will tell the thinking mind where to look next.” – Jonas Salk What is your intuition telling you about next steps with your hottest new project?

Slide 29: 

“Money never started an idea. It’s the idea that starts the money.” – William Cameron What can you do this week to communicate your hottest new idea to your most likely money source?

Slide 30: 

“If you have always done it that way, it is probably wrong.” – Charles Kettering In what ways can you proceed differently than you normally would with your hottest new project?

Slide 31: 

“Do not fear mistakes. There are none.” – Miles Davis What is your biggest fear about your biggest creative pursuit? And what can you do to go beyond it?

Slide 32: 

“The new idea either finds a champion or it dies. No ordinary involvement with a new idea provides the energy required to cope with the indifference and resistance that change provokes.” – Tom Peters What is it going to take in order for you to really champion your most inspired new idea?

Slide 33: 

“If you do not express your own original ideas, if you do not listen to your own being, you will have betrayed yourself. Also, you will have betrayed your community in failing to make your contribution to the whole.” – Rollo May Which original idea of yours do you need to honor and express with more boldness and commitment?
