004: The Closed World Principle of Creativity

Have you ever experienced coming out of brainstorming sessions getting all frustrated because you and your colleagues are always coming up with those same old, crappy ideas?


Good thing I’ve found a great way to generate new ideas and become more creative through the SIT method, which stands for Systematic Inventive Thinking.

Think about how you can be more successful in what you do every day just by being able to generate high-quality ideas in a systematic way – at any time. It’s definitely a great way to boost your value, especially within your organization. 

Today, I’m going to talk about the Closed World Principle of Creativity, which is one of the most important principles of the SIT method. 

 

In this episode you’ll hear:

  1. What is the Closed World Principle?
  2. Why it’s one of the most important principles of the SIT method
  3. How does applying the closed world principle boost creativity?
  4. The inverse relationship between the proximity of the problem to the solution and the level of creativity 
  5. Imagining an imaginary boundary
  6. How you can change the definition of your closed world
