I was recently interviewed for “The Innovation Engine” podcast. The conversation was easy and a lot of fun. We discussed innovation and breakthrough thinking.
During this interview I shared:
- how neural pathways get hard-wired into our brains stand in the way of breakthrough thinking
- an anecdote on how crowdsourcing and breakthrough thinking solved a 2 decade problem in just 6 weeks
- the concept of purposeful tangents; taking a percentage of your time to learn about topics that are adjacent to your area of expertise but not directly related
