Week 11 - Decisions, Creativity, & Innovation

03/31/2019 13:42

Creativity is the nature of creating something new, either a new idea, concept or method. Innovation is using creativity to enhance performance of a process, person, team or organization.

This is an exciting week as we continue our exploration of the “art of deciding.” We’ll see how it relates to creativity, innovation, and transformation. This art strongly correlates to the opportunities we see – and I have exercises to prove it.

We’ll learn about the incredible power of the FIRST CHOICE we make all day, every day (and no- it’s not our attitude, though that is definitely one of them.)

Our orientation to our decisions helps us determine the paths to take in life. We’re fortunate in the depth and breadth of our capacity to decide, to choose, to create, to innovate solutions.

Also, related to our discussion last week, here’s something to which I referred that you might find helpful, when choosing what to worry about.
