400 ways to get new ideas.
In today’s world being good is not good enough. If you are ambitious and want to make a mark in your field, you must think differently, get new ideas quickly, and do things better.
“INSANITY: Doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results.” That definition of Insanity is by Einstein.
Individuals and organisations who made a huge impact on the world knew how to think differently and do things better. However thinking differently does not seem to come easy for most of us, because of our habitual ways of thinking.
