Episode 044: The Most Creative Invention Ever: Put it to Work for You

What is the most creative invention of all time?

That’s a profound question. You may be scratching your head trying to find the answer. However, I actually get this question from my listeners, clients, and students quite often. 

In your mind, the smartphone might be the most creative invention ever. Or perhaps you’re thinking of something that has saved millions of lives like penicillin or cancer treatments. However, my answer is something a little different.

Today I am explaining what I consider to be the most creative invention ever. It is an invention that is not only extremely significant but, in my opinion, the most significant of all. I’m also explaining why it is important for you to think through this question and what all of this means for you. Tune in to hear it all.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  1. Why the smartphone isn’t actually that creative of an invention.
  2. What the inventions of penicillin and post-it notes have in common.
  3. Why the wheel isn’t the blockbuster invention.
  4. What I think is the most creative invention ever.
  5. Why vision impairment is so harmful.
  6. Where vision correction came from.
  7. How the SIT method was used in the creation and continual updating of vision correction.
  8. Why you should keep in mind the invention that you think is the most profound and creative.
  9. How highly innovative things can teach and train us.
