Episode 049: Googling Your Own Mind: How to Search for Ideas Within

Creative people are those who have the ability to Google their own minds.

What does that mean?

Well, it all ties back to the SIT method (systematic inventive thinking). When you use this method for innovation, there is a very specific process you follow inside your head. Part of this process involves asking yourself some questions that require you to search your mind for answers and ideas. In a sense, you Google your mind.

In this episode, I’m talking more about this idea of Googling your own mind. I’m explaining what it is, what I’ve observed in practice, and what it means for you to be able to use it as a way to boost your creative output. Tune in to learn more.
