Learn Through Collaboration

Learn Through Collaboration

The brain has an amazing way of connecting dots and ensuring we make the best use of all the knowledge we have. 

When you are out of ideas, expand your range of knowledge by speaking with others and reading extensively on other topics. 

This way, you give your brain more dots to connect and are more likely to come up with an idea.

Search Other Industries

Just because you are in a particular field, it does not mean you must source all your ideas from it. You could be an artist or banker both looking for ideas in the engineering industry. 

By diversifying the places you take ideas from you are more likely to come up with unique solutions as your brain connects the dots.

Use the Six Thinking Hats Technique

Use the Six Thinking Hats Technique

When you only look at a problem from one perspective you can only find a limited number of solutions. That is because your perspective is limiting you to seeing the situation in one way. 

By using the six thinking hats technique you can create six different perspectives to see the problem. For example: 

1. Facts

2. Opinions

3. Where things went wrong

4. Possibilities

5. Alternatives

6. New ideas

Look at the same problem through these different lenses and you will have better ideas.

Pick a Bad Idea

Sometimes, it is easier to work backwards than forwards. So, start with picking an idea that you think is bad and then work on how you would improve it.

You will start thinking of possible ways to improve your original idea, and this will lead to improved creativity.

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

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!

Giovanna Scalzone

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.

Ghazala Begum

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.
