Four Destructive Myths Most Companies Still Live By

Don't you ever get tired of listening to the same old speech?

   .: "Multitasking is critical in a world of infinite demand." - No. Do multitasking and you end up getting nothing done.

 

   .: "A little bit of anxiety helps us perform better." - Impossible. It just gets you out of focus. Concentration levels go down, how could performance go up?

 

   .: "Creativity is genetically inherited, and it's impossible to teach." - Everyone can be creative. And it can be taught. Being creative doesn't mean you are an artist, it means you are a problem solver and you are able to find the best solution.

 

   .: "The best way to get more work done is to work longer hours." - Is it? How far do you keep performing if you are just overloaded and tired? I believe in sustainable pace.

 

More detail on these in the article I publish here. Take a peak!

Failure As Compost

Failure As Compost | Innovatus | Scoop.it

Opposite to what you may think, compost is not just a piece of s#$t.

Even s#$t can have a useful destiny in life. Become compost! Make other things flourish and grow strong, healthy, solidly, where others once ended up dying.

Right?

So, that is the idea behind this small sketch.

8 Secrets To Creative Thinking (Hint: Steal From Others)

8 Secrets To Creative Thinking (Hint: Steal From Others) | Innovatus | Scoop.it

Oriental cultures have a higher tendency to use "copy from others" or "steal from others". Ocidental cultures think of this as an offense, while oriental ones see it as a way to honour their competitors. If we steal from you it is because you are doing something great.

And they also take the time to adjust to their own needs and make up their own improvements. Which means, stealing was a way to have a startup idea to begin with. And to do it following a good direction already.

This is the bright side. Of course there are fakers everywhere. I just showed you a different perspective I learnt with a friend whose origins and family roots are oriental.

 

Still, the principle as she explained to me is quite a valid one and it is part of what this article discusses. It is not the first time nor will it be the last where stealing an idea leads to innovation and thrive to grab wider audiences for your own work :)

They say an image is worth a thousand words.

The fact is, we are overloaded with information and some "silly" stuff like infographics currently are grabbing more and more of people's attention. Why not? They keep it simple!

I love the idea and I'm eagerly trying to get more experience and creativity following the visualization direction. What about you?

The Value of Data Visualization

Visualization is key.

Your knowledge is only as powerful and important as your ability to share it. And to be effective, you have to know how to capture your audiences's attention.

 

This video reminded me something very important today. Re-taught me, to tell you the truth. I always believed in the power of usability, visualization and aesthetics as means of communication.

 

You have doubts? Take a look. You can visualize how truthful my words are :)
