Flex Shares How to Inspire Innovation
Innovativity is a quality that separates the greatest from average minds. It’s a method and strategy that if used correctly can help accomplish various things. It’ll help create and develop different aspects of your career or personal goals. “Often the best of us get put into a creative rut. We have a hard time being vibrant with our ideas and we claim that we’re not good with creativity. Rather than thinking this way, we believe that everyone can be creative and inspire innovativity. The best way is to broaden your horizon and go beyond the box,” says Flex CEO, Sean. At Flex, we admire individuals that utilize the most of any innovative factor they have, even if it is very small. There are various ways to unlock your mind and use ideas. Here are some that we’ve come up with:
Critical Thinking Skills
Puzzles, crosswords and chess are good games to get your mind active and going. Your mind is a muscle, and it needs to be trained like you train at the gym. Imagine different ways to create and communicate. To really utilize your innovativity, try taking away something that you use a lot and see what you can do without it. This will help you create new ways to do things and new ways to think.
Turn off all the external noise. Your phone, laptop, TV, internet. Just use your mind and a pen with paper with jot down ideas and see what flows to you. Our world is filled with noise, toning that noise down helps to understand where your mind can really go. “When you remove external factors, you can then tap into your own innovative mindset and come up with valuable ideas,” says Sean Mies of Flex.
New People, New Convos
Speaking to different kinds of people helps you see perspectives and understand different ways everyone does things. “Strategy such as this is helpful because you can help yourself by learning as well implementing different ideas you’ve never thought of before,” mentions Flex CEO.
