5 Ways To Reframe Your Thinking To Be More Like Elon Musk

5 Ways To Reframe Your Thinking To Be More Like Elon Musk | Social Media, Design & Marketing | Scoop.it
How do innovative minds like Elon Musk and Steve Jobs come up with their groundbreaking ideas? Here's five ways they think differently.

Via Marty Koenig
Bettina Ascaino's insight:
[Marty Koenig's ]

The article says, "The idea here is that often an opportunity reveals itself to you because you see the interconnection of two things, the interdependence of things, that others cannot see."

 

So can this ability be taught? Is it genetic?

I have thought about this for a long time, too.

 

My youngest son and I both have an enhanced ability to connect things that aren't normally connected. To visualize patterns that other's likely haven't thought of. 

 

Here's one: I'm a CFO and a CMO. I've had both roles at the same company. More than once. Go figure. Not that I'm comparing myself to Musk and Jobs. 

 

There has been quite a bit of talk lately on how these two don't see eye-to-eye. One is left-brained, and te other is right-brained, never the two shall meet. 

 

I believe that when someone is super curious, they learn things that other's don't. When one that has explored work and life through a variety of glassese, instead of getting pigeon-holed in a career or doing one thing for a very long time, they can apply their whole mind to creative solutioning. 

 

If a structured way to increase this ability exists, or proves successful, that's awesome. In the end, I believe it's quite simple: Give kids and adults a way to easily build new mental models (ala Jean Piaget) or in other words, more neural connections not only between the left and right brain, but within sections of the whole brain. 

 

That's my two cents on it.

Like last year’s predictions deck, we’ve pulled together a select group of 70 top marketing minds who rock the digital trenches every day, to find out their vision for “What’s Next in 2017” in social media and content marketing. They live it, breathe it, and know what’s working today, so no doubt we’ll get a glimpse into the crystal ball and reveal key trends based on their insight and experience before they happen.It wouldn’t be the first time.

How to put more (and better) content into content marketing

How to put more (and better) content into content marketing | Social Media, Design & Marketing | Scoop.it

Content takes courage. Marketers are all-too familiar with elongated approval processes and revision demands that can sap vitality and originality from created content, leaving only pedestrian work in their wake. Compelling content, the kind that attracts and sustains audiences, often involves conflict and requires risk — attributes businesses (and their legal departments) are prone to avoiding.


How to solve the content problem


Thus, the business community faces a challenging circumstance. Companies believe in content marketing and want to do it well. But getting there almost always means overcoming institutionalized impediments. Here are four ways to get around these problems....
