Creative Thinking Exercise - 3 Steps to Take Away Expectations

Creative Thinking Exercise - 3 Steps to Take Away Expectations | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Expectations are great when they help you think about what you want to accomplish. Expectations can also help you envision opportunities and problems you could face before they actually develop.

Expectations can also force you, however, to do things that aren’t good for you or even relevant to what you’re trying to make happen.

When expectations keep you clinging to the same old ideas or stuck in the same old ways, you have to do something to deal with them. We have a creative thinking exercise that can help.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

This is a great coaching exercise.

 

"No expectations on my part about you using this creative thinking exercise, but I think you’ll be more creative and happier if you do use it…frequently". – Mike Brown

Ariana Amorim's insight:

From the site: "With placebos (“I will please” in Latin), the mere expectation that treatment will help brings a diminution of symptoms, even if the patient is given a sugar pill. With nocebos (“I will harm”), dark expectations breed dark realities. In clinical drug trials, people often report the side effects they were warned about, even if they are taking a placebo".
