724 Think Like A Kid

You can’t beat kids regarding new, innovative, out-of-the-box thinking. I mean, not all kids, but those fearless try-anything-because-they-don’t-know-not-to kinds of kids. I think you know the kinds of kids I’m thinking of:

  1. The ones that climbed up to the roof with their blankets to see if they use them as capes to fly
  2. The ones that would take electronic things apart and put them back together
  3. The ones that always asked: “why?”

While most kids who think out of the box don’t understand where the box is – similar to having a beginner’s mind – there is one key difference between having a beginner’s mind and a “kid mind,” – which is the unabashed playfulness. The willingness to try something out, just for fun, to see what happens. It’s active, assertive, and open-minded. And of all of the tools in our arsenal of innovation, this one is probably the easiest to uncover.
