Episode 047: Analog Transfer – A Creative Gemstone

I love a good analogy. They help us explain things, make comparisons, and bring clarification to complex issues. I use them a lot in the classroom and with my corporate clients. It’s likely that the people you know who are best at explaining things use analogies too.

Did you know that you can also use analogies in creativity? 

If not, I’m going to teach you how to do so in this episode. I’m explaining how to harness the power of analogies in order to generate more creative ideas.

Truly, life is like an analogy. Our lives are all about the comparisons we make from one thing to another. Likewise, in the world of creativity we can use analogies to make our lives just a little bit better. Tune in to hear all about them.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  1. What an analogy is.
  2. The different ways and situations in which analogies are used.
  3. How analogies can simplify conversations.
  4. What an analog transfer is.
  5. The two broad ways to use analog transfer.
  6. Four different kinds of analogies you can apply to a creativity context.
  7. Why you must be intentional when using analog transfer.
