- The Geography of Ideas
15th October 2014
One of the most important areas in any creative thinking process, and one often ignored in brainstorm sessions, is The Geography of Ideas.
A definition of Geography is – ‘ the nature and relative arrangement of people and places’. With regards to brainstorming, the relative arrangement of people and how they interact in a creative thinking session, is fundamental to its success.
- A Street Wisdom Adventure in Marylebone
9th Sept 2014
I ran a #street_wisdom adventure ( http://www.streetwisdom.org ) with the very wonderful people from Future Publishing, this week
We spent some relaxing and contemplative time in a few peaceful residential streets east of Marylebone station and west of Gloucester Place
We had a whole range of questions for the street, such as –
What can be my new hobby? Should I move into town or out to the country? How can I get out of the rat race and follow my passion? I’d like to move my family to a warm climate – how can I make this real? I’m stuck in a bit of a rut and would like to bring my dream to life? I’d like to get even more happiness in my life
