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 :)
