To generate ideas, is one of the most useful skill.
We owe the evolution of our cultural and technical to ideas and intuition. Any progress is based on our imagination and creativity.
What can stop us from having idea?
Some people think that they are too old to do this creative effort. But a lot of well know people reached their peak of creative abilities at a later stage. Mark Twain had over 70 years when he created 3 more books, Goethe, Kant, Voltaire and a lot of great poets/philosophers had over 60 years whey they created new things.
Laziness, prejudgment, timidty, low energy and determination are obstacles that blocks our creativity that should help us to create a better future.
Some of it start when we were young. We can just say that at the age of 3 we were all entrepreneurs. We asked over 400 questions per day, we tested a lot of things and we did a lot of things.
What was the reaction of our parents ? They said: “You are not allowed to do this and that”. A 3 year old kid, is born to conquer the world, to grow in all direction, but he is forced to enter a convetional pattern. The moment the kid reaches the age of school, his thoughts do not have a freedom of his own, but followed an accepted path.
…and it continues as school…
The teaches do NOT accept a wrong answer. They react in a way that our mind becomes a street with only one way.
