This Can Change Your Life and Those Around You
“We now live in the Conceptual Age,” says Daniel Pink, author of the book, A Whole New Mind.
In an article written in the Charleston Regional Business Journal, David Rawle writes, “ Pink’s overarching thesis is that we moved from the Industrial Age to the Information—now to the Conceptual Age. “The future, according to Pink, “belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind—creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers, and meaning makers.”
In other words, innovation can change your life and the lives of those in your sphere of influence.
I am a Concrete Thinker, which means that I have a strong preference for Structural and Social Thinking.
I am 3% Conceptual. Twenty-three percent or greater is a strength. Therefore, ideas have never come freely to me, until now.
Over the last six months, I have been on a quest to be more innovative. I have studied some of the most creative people on the planet—Steven Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, and not to mention the countless co-workers and friends that I know who have a preference for Conceptual Thinking.
If you are ready to be more innovative, I encourage you to read the article, Spur Your Brain to Innovate, in Inc.com by Dr. Geil Browning, Founder, Emergenetics international.
