How to recognize and overcome limiting beliefs
We have a tendency to want to work with friends, but it turns out that this inhibits creativity. We need new people in the team as well.
It is unlikely that a team that has worked together for a long time will come up with something really original.
So add some diversity. If you want your team to be agile and innovative then do not recruit new players who will ‘fit in’; choose people who will challenge the group’s thinking.
During the 1920s most of the musicals developed by great names like Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein were flops. The problem was that these artists got into the habit of collaborating only with friends. The repeat relationships stifled creativity.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
