Zen is you – Be.

don’t read this

Posted in Uncategorized by dave225 on October 7, 2011

If you’re reading this, you don’t follow directions well. Good for you.

This is hasty – because it’s 4am and because details don’t matter …

I’m looking for a few people – around 5 of them, maybe more, to form a group. For lack of a better term, I call it “Innovation Calisthenics.”

Every other week (or maybe more|less often) we get together to expand our thinking. How we do that will evolve. Not important how, and if this is something you dig, then you get why.

But what might that be? Maybe it’s word association games, field trips, table topics, collaborative art projects, .. there are lots of ways to practice innovation – let’s not get hung up on that.

What it won’t be:
-Talking about why innovation is important or how great it is to be innovative
-Talking about how to be innovative or who’s really good at it
-Self-congratulatory
-Other meta topics

The point is not to *be* innovative – it’s to stretch and exercise. Consider this part of your personal “forget the task list, sort things out” time. .. or a social muse.(?) And that feeds your everyday work|creativity|problems|opportunities. ….Nor is the intention to find ways to save the world, but it’s not off limits.

Here are your questions:
-Do you see it? / Do you want to?
-Can you commit to it regularly?

    I think it’s a great idea and would love to… but I think I have committed myself to over-capacity already. Would love to hear how the group progresses though.
