Thinking Lessons Revisited DFQ#9 How important is creativity -Edward de Bono

Edward de Bono, co-founder of SOT and author of Lateral Thinking:

“There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.”

DFQ: What patterns can you escape from today?

i have accidented upon an opportunity to escape from my normal saturday by way of attending a nephew’s fencing competition. The simple changes in pattern have offered some interesting situations already; new systems and procedures to follow, no food on site so i am starving (a physiological change).

If I make a conscious decision about which pattern to break, it would have to be my personal pattern of not following through on things as simple as putting the bread away. Make an effort and the change in behavior leads to new opportunities in other situations.
